12. She surely know how to explore around when no one else is there

Arid low desert and vegetated high desert meet in this beloved natural gem, offering visitors stunning vistas and rewarding hikes.

An enduring symbol of the Mojave Desert, Yucca brevifolia might be the namesake of this national park in the desert east of Los Ange­les, but it’s certainly far from the only thing to see at Joshua Tree. Dozens of trails are open to hiking, biking, and horseback riding, and the stony terrain makes it one of America’s rock­climbing meccas. Spring brings a carpet of wildflow­ers. And the superclear desert night sky makes the park an oasis for stargazing

13. The return of rainy days and colder fall weather makes for moody days like this in the PNW

Cozy sweaters, bonfires, tailgating and football games, apple picking, pumpkin carving and Halloween trick-or-treating are all things that go hand in hand with the autumn season! With the rich colors of the changing foliage and the food provided by autumn’s bountiful harvest, Mother Nature provides a gorgeous background for the fall aesthetic—giving all of those gorgeous photos a magical feel

14. Rainy day in Switzerland

The Ursern Valley (canton of Uri) at the foot of the Gotthard Pass is one of the most impressive high valleys in Switzerland. Andermatt (1444 m), the largest of the three villages in the valley, is located at the heart of the Swiss Alpine passes, at the crossroads of the north/south and west/east routes. The variety of possible tours through the eight Alpine passes is unique in the world

Outstanding tours in the passes around Andermatt:









Unforgettable moments of discovery whether by car, motorbike, racing bike, mountain bike, vintage car rental, Glacier Express, historic stagecoach, Furka-Dampfbahn or Oberalp Openair Express

17. Natural beauty through our eyes, at Trolltunga, Norway

Trolltunga is no doubt one of the most awe-inspiring cliffs in Norway, situated about 1,100 meters above sea level and hovering some 700 metres above Lake Ringedalsvatnet

At the western edge of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau and near the town of Odda, Trolltunga (the troll’s tongue) and the valley below were carved out by an icecap that covered most of Scandinavia during a series of ice ages. Every year, travellers from all over the world come here to do the hike and get a picture of themselves on or in front of the world-famous cliff

21. Switzerland hikes hit differently, at Thrift bridge, Switzerland

Located in the Swiss alps around 45km east of Interlaken, the Trift bridge has to be one of the most spectacular suspension bridges in the world. The bridge is 170m long, stands 100m above the river below and it a 3km hike from the car park.

The best part is the epic view towards the Trift glacier and surrounding mountains

22. This is Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula & it is SUCH an amazing spot that I don’t feel like anyone really talks about

The water? Insanely turquoise & teal. The rocks? Reminded me of Portugal. Worth visiting? Hell yeah.

So get your hiking boots & kayaks & put it in your plans for next summer or even this fall if you can get there in time!

Did I convince you to add Pictured Rocks to your USA to do list?

24. More than 100 natural arches can be found here at the Red River Gorge in Daniel Boone National Forest, Kentucky! And FALL is the perfect time to experience its stunning scenery

Must-see and totally noteworthy trails to hike in the Red River Gorge:

🥾Hike the Double Arch, Courthouse Rock & Auxier Ridge Loop. ⠀
-Begin at “Auxier Ridge Trailhead” (in Google maps) and soon you’ll be traversing the narrow ridge where sheer cliffs extend on both sides.

-At the end of the ridge, you’ll have numerous views of Courthouse Rock, Haystack Rock, Raven Rock + so much more before descending down into the gorge amid the lush creek bottom. 

-On your way back up, you’ll come to another trail that branches off.. leading to the beautiful “Double Arch” (as shown above).⠀

-All in all, we clocked our hike at about 7.5 miles in total and rate it “moderate” in difficulty.⠀

🥾 Hike the short (~1 mile loop) to Sky Bridge! On this hike, you can walk both on top and below the natural arch that stands 23 feet high and 75 feet long. This hike is quick and rated easy!

🥾Hike the unmarked trail to Hopewell Arch, Copperas Falls, and Box Falls. Park at the Osborne Bend Parking Lot on KY-715 and since the trail is unmarked, it can be difficult to navigate. So, enter the following coordinates into Google maps and download the map for easy offline access.

🥾 Hike to Gray’s Arch (about 3 miles out and back). The trail approaches a 50-foot natural arch through a ravine as you trek along cliffs and a stream. All within a dense forest setting! The trailhead can be found at Gray’s Arch Picnic Area/ Recreation Area.⠀


25. A visit to Luray caverns, a largest caverns in eastern America

The largest caverns in eastern America is a must when staying in Shenandoah National Park. The drive was about 30 minutes from our resort and absolutely worth it. Get ready to be astonished at the gorgeous sites and massive formations. It’s another world down there and extremely beautiful. Other on-site attractions are included with your admission so you can easily make a day of your visit

26. Fossurin í Fossá is one of the highest waterfalls in the Faroe Islands, and one of the biggest attractions in northern Streymoy

"Fossá" in the Faroese language means "river with waterfalls", and there are several streams in Faroe Island with such a name.  The waterfall is located near the village of Haldarsvík, in the Sunda Kommuna municipality. It goes cascading 140 metres down to the sea in two stages. It is possible that in the height of falls is included also the run of the stream between the falls and the sea, which has a height difference of some 30 m!

27. 3 WAYS TO SAVE MONEY ON A NATIONAL PARK ROAD TRIP, save this for later, at Yosemite National Park

1. BUY GROCERIES: eating out in or around the park is usually not cheap and takes a long time to drive to! consider getting groceries instead

2. ENTER THE PARK SUPER EARLY/LATE: if you enter before anyone is at the ranger entry station, no one is there to collect park fees

3. CONSIDER A CAMPERVAN/CAMPING: save on hotel and car rental costs AND the time it takes for you to get to and from the park. plus, you might wake up to awesome views in the middle of nature!
