When people see my photographs of the incredible Antelope Canyon on Instagram, I am often asked for recommendations on when and how to book a tour. My advice is always to book early and be prepared to deal with crowds. You see, the two times I visited the canyon were well over a decade ago, and there was far less demand for tours and the crowds were much smaller. I still think Antelope Canyon is an incredible sight that you should try and see at least once in your life. However, if you are either trying to book a tour last minute or would like a beautiful canyon experience without the massive crowds, then I would suggest that you keep reading my Waterhole Canyon guide. Believe me, this breathtaking canyon won’t be a secret for long either, so this is your chance to tour it before the crowds get much larger!

The Definitive Pictured Rocks Travel Guide
When it comes to the world’s incredible coastlines, most of the attention goes to the breathtaking ocean coastlines that are found throughout the world. Places like the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, the Great Ocean Road in Australia, and the Big Sur coastline in the American state of California get a lot of attention from travelers. I have visited all of these coastlines in my many travelers, and I can personally attest to their incredible beauty. However, when searching out the world’s most amazing coastlines, I think that the Great Lakes region of North America is often mistakenly overlooked. Between the seven Great Lakes of North America, there is some absolutely stunning stretches of coastline for travelers to enjoy. Destinations like the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior and Turnip Rock in Lake Huron are stunning coastlines that rival any ocean coast you will find in the world. However, my favorite is undoubtedly the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Lake Superior.
The Essential Pictured Rocks Packing Guide
The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is one of the most beautiful places in the Midwestern United States if not all of North America. Tourists flock to this stretch of the Lake Superior shoreline each year to do some kayaking, hiking and enjoy the beautiful landscapes. However, each year I see tourists arrive at Pictured Rocks completely unprepared. They either don’t have the right clothing for the climate, don’t have the right gear for the activities they would like to try, or don’t have the equipment to keep them safe and comfortable while camping.

The Definitive Pinnacles National Park Guide
Even though it is one of the smallest parks in America’s national parks system, Pinnacles National Park is renown for its breathtaking landscapes and relatively large population of California Condors. Located in central California, roughly 125-miles south of San Francisco and just west of the beautiful Big Sur coastline, Pinnacles National Park may be one of the most underrated national parks in the United States because of its location. Being in such close proximity to so many other larger and equally gorgeous parks, Pinnacles National Park is often overlooked by visitors to California looking to get out and explore the state’s beauty. However, in my Pinnacles National Park guide, I am going to show you why overlooking this amazing park the next time you visit the Golden State would be a mistake.
