The United States

I love to travel nationally and immerse myself in the local culture.  Our country has so much beauty to offer – from sprawling deserts to Ozark rainforests, gigantic mountain ranges and glittering cityscapes.  We don’t have to travel far to see a completely different world.
Adventure Tip: When traveling to an unknown destination, especially one that is quite popular, it pays for itself to hire a tour guide to show you the less populated areas. Listed below are the guides I used and the agencies in which I booked them.
Monument Valley, Utah – Larson Homer – Navajo Spirit Tours
Bend, Oregon – Doug Bowser – Cascade Center of Photography
New Orleans, Louisiana – Michaela – Private New Orleans Tours
