Yesterday, John Muir celebrated his 177th birthday. Happy Birthday, John! I know I am a day late, but its the though that counts.

Painted Desert, Arizona, United States
After a short mile hike from the Painted Desert Inn, I made camp on this small ridge in the Painted Desert. I had a slight accident when locating a good spot to camp for the night, but in the end it was worth finding this amazing spot.
Crystal River, Florida, United States

Iceland is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is just north of Reykjavik and is a great place to sit out and see the lights.
This small town in Austria is a winter getaway with great skiing. The summer provides some great hiking trails.
