El Yunque Tropical Rain Forest, Puerto Rico

May 1, 2006 | Text And Photography By Efraín M. Padró
The Caribbean National Forest, locally known as El Yunque (the anvil), is located about an hour’s drive east of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s capital. Established in 1903 as the Luquillo Forest Reserve, El Yunque is the only tropical rain forest in the National Forest System. Relatively small at 28,000 acres, the forest’s highest elevations (about 3,500 feet above sea level) can receive more than 250 inches of rain per year.

Merrymeeting Marsh, New Hampshire

April 1, 2006 | Text And Photography By Jane Wingate
Among the many rivers, ponds and swamps in southern New Hampshire, the Merrymeeting Marsh in New Durham is a standout for photographers who have discovered the fun of shooting from a kayak. The Merrymeeting River flows out of Merrymeeting Lake and into Lake Winnipesaukee, opening up into a marshy expanse on the west side of Route 11, about 90 miles north of Boston. The parking lot and the easy put-in are just past the junction of Route 11 West and Ridge Road.

Trona Pinnacles National Natural Landmark, California

March 1, 2006 | Text And Photography By David Linnig
The out-of-this-world formations of the Trona Pinnacles National Natural Landmark have been used as a backdrop in a number of science-fiction films. There are about 500 towers of various shapes that reach as high as 140 feet above the base. The formations are the weathered remnants of tufa (a form of calcium carbonate) towers created under water between 10,000 and 80,000 years ago in an ancient lake that’s now dry.

Madera Canyon Recreation Area, Arizona

July 1, 2005 | Text And Photography By Jim Burns
Over the broad Santa Cruz River Valley and bordered by mountain ranges to the north and west, Madera Canyon is a small, intimate chapel of textures, shapes and colors. An hour south of Tucson and east of Highway I-19, Madera Creek originates near 9,453-foot Mount Wrightson and winds through pine-oak forests and granite outcrops to the high desert far below. Part of Coronado National Forest, the canyon’s main attractions are hiking and bird-watching. The canyon is home to a host of colorful and unique species including the elegant trogon, whose breeding range is located here in Arizona’s "sky islands."

Red River Gorge, Kentucky

If the Kentucky Derby is the crown jewel of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown, then the Red River Gorge deserves similar accolades for pure scenic beauty. Encompassing approximately 40,000 acres of eastern Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest "the gorge" as locals call it, is itself a jewel not to be ignored.

Terry Badlands, Montana

November 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Carol Polich
The Terry Badlands look like the rest of eastern Montana from I-94: flat-topped buttes and a few erosion cracks in the sandstone cliff walls. Taking the Terry exit and proceeding north on Highway 253 for less than a mile and after crossing the bridge over the Yellowstone River, the gravel road sign heading west reads: "Scenic View." As you travel through flat, prairie lands, you see isolated buttes scattered in the distant landscape. After a few miles, the earth becomes more rugged.

While most travelers believe the Florida Keys come to an end at Key West, 69 miles farther west you’ll find seven tiny islands that make up Dry Tortugas National Park. These islands retain an air of rich wildness and history unmatched anywhere else in the Keys. Discovered in 1513 by Ponce de León, the Tortugas were named for the sea turtles that still cruise the waters today.
