The Texas Hill Country is famous for beautiful, green rolling hills. One of the hidden treasures found there is the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area which is part of the Texas State Parks.
Enchanted Rock is a large dome that jets up to 425 feet in a short 0.6 mile hike. It was named be Indians from the Tonkawa tribe who believed ghosts enchanted this rock and burned fires at the top. Making the hike up the main Summit Trail is not an easy feat for those who are not used to hiking, especially since the Texas sun unabashedly beats down on you on your journey up. It is worth all of the effort though when you get to the top and look down and see miles and miles of the beautiful rolling hills of Texas. As busy as it is you can set out along the top and find your own area to appreciate this spectacular view. Your way back down the rock isn’t much easier than your ascent. It is very steep and you can often hear many people wondering how they are going to get back down.
Along with the Summit Trail there are quite a few other trails you can hike along. Many of them are less busy then the main trail and offer various views of the dome from different vantage points. There are also a few places for rock climbing and camping. There are many walk-in sites that are only about 25-100 yards from parking with some facilities available and a few primitive campsites.
This area of Texas is a great place for family camping and offers many other things to do. The town of Fredericksburg is located nearby and has many small shops and authentic German food. You can also visit Johnson City which is only a short drive away. Here you can tour the ranch of former President Lyndon B. Johnson. The site also features tours of the Texas White House. If you are looking for some great Texas BBQ just check out Cooper’s in Llano. Austin, Texas is only about 60 miles away too if you want to hear some great live music and see the Texas State Capitol.
Strategic packing for the casual traveler
I have realized, as I have traveled more and more, that I had to develop a strategy for packing. A strategy that allows me to have only what I need, but most of what I want while I am away from home.
The last thing we want is to lug extra stuff through airports, shuttle busses, and hotels. And now with airlines charging for checked luggage, we want to carry on as much as possible.
While we want to prepared for anything, we don’t want to carry items we are not going to use. Look at the items you are packing. Is there anything you are packing “just in case”? Could you run out to a local store and replace that item cheaply if you actually did in fact need it? If yes, don’t bring it. [...]
Sightseeing is a great contribution to the income of a country and a factor facilitating the boom of the country’s economy. In fact, sightseeing is considered the most powerful method to support national integration as well as unite people from not only across the country’s different parts but also all around the world. Almost all the US states encourage all types of tourism and the State of Florida in particular. [...]
The island of Lanzarote is not known for its innate beauty despite the fact that is has several distinct types of landscape, most of which are completely untouched. For many people, the defining characteristics of the island are the three hundred odd volcanoes that were created during the eighteenth century eruptions.
However, the northern half of the island was hardly affected by this event and as a result, much older scenery abounds here. In the valleys around Haria, visitors can see terraced hillsides that were created by hardworking farmers in the past. The north is also far greener than the south.
The coastal areas also have their own feel and style, with low rise towns and villages full of whitewashed houses and palm trees. The oldest resort, Puerto del Carmen, still resembles a typical Canarian village despite its expansion over the last four decades.
It nestles into the eastern coastline and has a long stretch of sandy beaches along its seafront. The accommodation is almost entirely of the self-catering variety, with Puerto del Carmen offering some of the best apartments and villas in Lanzarote.
The town is well equipped to provide an excellent base for holidaymakers, even those who want to spend most of their time exploring the rest of Lanzarote. As its central location makes almost every attraction the island has only a half hour drive away.
And driving is certainly the best way of seeing all there is to see, as car hire in Lanzarote is very affordable, whilst the roads themselves are generally quiet, especially away from the motorway.
One of the most striking vistas that deserves a visit has to be the beach at Famara. This is a seven kilometre stretch of golden sand in a horse shoe curve which is very popular with local surfers and kite-surfers. Behind the beach are the cliffs of the Risco de Famara forming a stunning backdrop.
The other area that regularly surprises and charms visitors is the wine region of La Geria, where vines are cultivated by a unique method of viniculture. Many tourists find their holidays in Lanzarote are incomplete without a visit to one of the bodegas in this region.
Apart from natural beauties, the island also has a range of tourist attractions that are well worth a visit. Each was designed by local artist César Manrique and has been created to work in harmony with the natural beauty surrounding it.
One of the most photographed, written about, and visited tourist attractions in the United States, has to be the Grand Canyon. It truly is one of the most spectacular natural places on the entire planet. It’s been visited, and researched for decades, and one of the truly amazing things about the Canyon, is all the different ways you can spend time visiting it. If your thinking at all about spending time in the Nevada area, then a visit to Grand Canyon Tours would be a good use of your time. You can visit the Grand Canyon by air, by water, by bus, by ATV, by SUV, and even by foot if your feeling so inclined.
While a helicopter view of the canyon may seem pretty cool, I’m not sure it would be my first choice. If I only had one chance to spend time in the Grand Canyon, I think I’d want to be a little closer. Plus, I think I’d want to spend more than just a few hours there. Most likely I’d be looking for a ride down the river, a little camping along the Colorado River, an overnight stay. While I’m partial to five star hotels, I certainly wouldn’t turn down a chance to sleep under the stars either. Now, if you can squeeze in a helicopter ride the morning after I’d really be a happy camper.
One of the best things about camping is getting to enjoy great food cooked in the outdoors. In fact, some people who would otherwise dislike being in the wilderness jump at the chance to eat food from camping BBQ or campfire grills. But just like most things associated with camping, you need to be prepared to be able to enjoy your food. That means taking the time to plan out what you will bring and in how much you will use. While eating in the wild can be fun, running out of food in the middle of nowhere is not something you’d ever want to happen. [...]
