Aurora over Denali National Park and Preserve

Share/Bookmark

The park encompasses more than 6 million acres in a complete sub-arctic ecosystem. It features North America’s highest mountain, 20,320-foot tall Mount McKinley. The aurora is a beautiful, phenomenon, occurring year-round. Only in the fall, winter and early spring, is there enough darkness to allow us to see the northern lights when they occur. The aurora borealis occurs when a coronal mass ejection, a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields, interacts with elements in the earth’s atmosphere. Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares.

Duro Canyon State Park

Share/Bookmark

Less than a half hour drive south of Amarillo, Texas is the mysterious terra cotta badlands of Palo Duro Canyon. Palo Duro Canyon is the most spectacular and scenic landscape feature of Texas. Palo Duro Canyon, which is known as the Grand Canyon of Texas and is supposedly the second largest in the USA. This is based on its length (120 miles) rather than depth, as although very colorful, rugged and scenic, the ravine is never more than 800 feet deep, so quite shallow by Southwest canyon standards. Its a very popular place for tourists, campers, picnickers, photographers, backpackers, RV-ers, hikers, horse riders and cyclers.

Gros Morne National Park, Canada – The adventure continues

Share/Bookmark

Gros Morne National Park is a world heritage site located on the west coast of Newfoundland. At 1,805 km2 (697 sq mi), it is the second largest national park in Atlantic Canada. The landscape holds many rock formations with deep valleys, waterfalls and fjords, stark cliffs, and curving beaches of white sand, secret coves, mossy bogs and wide stone barrens, mountains topped with arctic-alpine tundra where arctic hare, woodland caribou, and rock ptarmigan live and a vast natural rock garden of northern flowers flourish. Gros Morne National Park surrounds seven small coastal communities. These communities began around the early 1800’s as migratory fishermen and their families decided to over winter in this area after the fishing season rather than returning to their homes in other regions of Newfoundland, France and England.

Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska

Share/Bookmark

Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve is a U.S. National Park in Alaska. It is the second largest at 13,238 miles, about the same size as Switzerland. The park’s name comes from a nature activist who, while exploring the North Fork of the Koyukuk River, saw two mountains, Frigid Crags & Boreal Mt., flanking the river on each side and christened this portal the “Gates of the Arctic”. What is remarkable is that such a large chunk of land has remained one of the most remote and unspoiled places in the world. No roads lead into the park, and there are no trails or bridges inside. Gates of the Arctic National Park’s summer season is from mid-May to mid-September. The main park ranger station is located in Anaktuvuk Pass. The village hosts visitors from around the world, and offer tours about life in the village.
