White Water Rafting, AuSable Chasm, New York

The weather-rounded mountains of upstate New York undulate between hundreds of lakes that dot Adirondack Park like an enormous sea serpent. Anchoring its dusky blue-black tail on the horizon, the creature dips its shimmering green coils into one cobalt pool of water after another as it slithers down the mountains. I followed its serpentine route [...]

Sleeping on the Great Wall, China

The Great Wall is usually the highlight of a trip through China. As far as UNESCO world heritage sites, or wonders of the world are concerned, I think it would rank consistently in the top 10. I said it’s visible from space, but I was just testing you to see …

A Hike to Machu Picchu, Peru

The hike to Machu Picchu was long, hard and pretty much vertical. Looking back, I should have counted the steps. Not only did we walk to the entrance, we also hiked up to the peak of Huayna Picchu, as well as all the way to the Sun Gate where people enter from the Inca trail. […]

Hiking the Australian Outback

Australia’s Red Heart. 4 Days, 8 Locations. This is a swan dive deep into Central Australia. Bucketlist items checked off in this video are: visiting the legendary Ayer’s Rock, drinking from waterfalls in the Olgas and hiking along Kings Canyon’s rim. Big Ups to Intrepid Travel, their tours always blow me away. This trip was […]

Sleeping on the Great Wall of China, Jinshanling, China

A visit to the Great Wall of China in Jinshanling (about two hours north of Beijing). We hiked up to the top to see the sunset, then back down to the village for dinner, following which we hiked back to the top in the dark with flashlights via a different route. Once on top, we […]

Amazon Animals & Wonders,

A biologist in the Amazon Rainforest? You’re going to need a cro-bar to pry him out. We stayed in an Eco-Lodge named Posada Amazonas. They went for the “Open” concept room design there. A knee length curtain for the front door, one for the bathroom and only 3 walls… the 4th wall was a railing […]

Machu Picchu & Cuzco, Peru

Welcome to Cuzco. A city that has to be seen to be understood. The Spanish came, the Spanish conquered, and the Spanish transformed this place, but only partially. It’s a fusion. Massive churches and beautiful colonial balconies are mixed with 30 foot walls which at one point were the foundations of old Incan temples. This […]

Hiking Lares Valley, Cusco, PerĂº

Thin Air, Cool Temperatures and the MOST incredible landscape I have ever seen. The curtains open and we start out on the Lares Trek, one of the many Inca Trails that snake through the Peruvian Andes. The pace was perfect, 33 kilometers over 3 days gave us plenty of time to shift into a lower […]
