  • The Beauty of Things Untouched   I could not believe my eyes. There, spread before me and the world, was Yellowstone National Park, with its millions of trees, thousands of animals of many different species, and one-of-a-kind geysers of different assortment.            The sheer beauty of it was...

It’s amazing how we could just be in one place...

  • We had just completed the Double Hawaiian rapid of the Pigeon River, and a breathtaking sunset in the distance was our reward for a day of hard work. I closed my eyes and laid back in the red solo boat that had carried me faithfully down so much intense whitewater that summer, and I relished in the...

  • Travel Blog: Yellowstone National Park (July 2007)               Well, this was a very interesting experience with the natural wonder we had the chance to experience.
