Yosemite, Joshua Tree and Death Valley are perhaps the most well known California parks but one of my personal favorites is Lassen Volcanic National Park. Located just south of the border with Oregon on California’s North Eastern Corner. Lassen is a vibrant and mesmerizing park, full of volcanoes that have shaped a colorful and rugged landscape, dotted with glacier lakes, beautiful forest, hot springs and incredible hiking.
Africa is such a diverse and interesting continent, and one that is packed full of wonderful countries to explore. So many, in fact, it can be hard to pick just one. When it comes to African adventures, however, it’s kind of difficult to go wrong with Tanzania. Statistics compiled by Tanzania Invest tell us that 81% of the visitors to the country are those visiting for leisure and tourism purposes. If you’re sitting on the fence about exploring all that Tanzania has to offer, here are 5 reasons why you need to add this country to your bucket list.
1. One of the World’s Most Iconic Mountains
There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when you take those last few steps and rise up to the summit of a mountain peak. When you are high above the world below, looking down at the countryside that holds the memory of your footsteps, and the mountainside that you just conquered. There is something about the mountain air, the solitude, the peacefulness of the high peaks that spurs our confidence, our strength and our resilience. We come down from the heights feeling stronger, braver and more apt for a challenge than when we had taken our first steps towards the ascent. That feeling of accomplishment stays with us for days, weeks and even years. It’s not just the personal satisfaction that makes climbing, trekking and hiking a great past time. There’s also the experience of seeing and being part of the natural world that surrounds you. Watching afternoon rains turn dry mountain sides into cascading waterfalls. Seeing birds awake in the misty morning fog before taking flight as the sun rises over a landscape of incredible beauty and watching animals in their natural elements unencumbered by human development or interaction.
