Smaller Moments

I have never walked through Roman Catacombs, gazed from above Niagara Falls, or even seen the Grand Canyon.  I cannot tell stories of how I trekked the Amazon, share how I navigated Tokyo, or preach on the beauty of Yellowstone.  Those destinations tend to create unreachable expectations.  In my summer trip of 2013 I learned that sweet surprises and little moments of unusual wonder, that defy expectations, are the greatest ways to shape a satisfying trip.  You do not realize it in the moment, but instances of laughter and amazement are far less ephemeral than the destination itself.

Face to Face with the Top Predator of the Ocean

Orcinus Orca. The Killer Whale. They do justice to this nickname—a pod of orcas can defeat a Great White Shark.  They are the top predator of the ocean. However, they are also curious, playful, and expressive creatures whose strength and beauty cannot be denied.

There are few places in the world where you can see orcas up close in a way that is not potentially dangerous to human or whale (dolphin, technically). Thanks to the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, it is illegal to interact with killer whales in the wild.
