Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, New Jersey

June 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Jay Goodrich
The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is located only 26 miles from the center of Times Square in New York City. Part of the suburbs near the town of Morristown, N.J., the refuge was formed when environmentalists and developers collided over the construction of a jetport in the 1950s. The Great Swamp Committee came to the rescue; it raised more than a million dollars to purchase the first 3,000 acres of land, which it then donated to the Department of the Interior.

Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada

May 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Rick Brown
Waterton Lakes National Park is a land of serrated mountains, rolling prairies and mirror-like glacial lakes. Located in Alberta, Canada and directly north of Glacier National Park, Watertonis similar to its more familiar sister park and, in fact, the two are managed cooperatively as the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. However, Waterton contains a more extensive road system, more prairie land and more easily found lowland wildlife than Glacier.

Chama River Canyon Wilderness, New Mexico

April 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Charles Klingsporn
Established in 1978, the 50,000-acre Chama River Canyon Wilderness is located north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The terrain is typical of the high-country desert Southwest, with red sandstone cliffs and a variety of vegetation due to the mix of desert and canyon river terrain. The areas along the riverbed, at about 6,500 feet above sea level, are piñon-juniper and cedar woodland. The higher elevations on the cliffs, up to 8,100 feet, consist mostly of ponderosa pine and fir.

Muddy Mountains, Nevada

March 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Alan Martz

The Muddy Mountains are located northeast of Las Vegas and include Valley of Fire State Park, well known for its colorful vistas. But the Muddies continue south of the park to the lesser known Buffington Pockets, which feature many of the same sandstone formations. The colorful layers and surprising textures and forms are found in the outcroppings of Aztec Sandstone, some of which have been quarried for decorative rock. This slick-rock country includes white domes, and red, orange and white "rainbow"-layered rock that are in sharp contrast to the towering dark gray cliffs to the east.

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, Texas

January 1, 2004 | Text And Photography By Erik Aagaard
Enchanted Rock is an enormous, 640-acre pink granite dome located between Llano and Fredericksburg in the Hill Country of central Texas, about 90 miles north of San Antonio. It’s part of the Llano Uplift, a large region of granite bedrock that rises out of the surrounding limestone. Over the last several million years, erosion has exposed this 425-foot-high, billion-year-old dome and its smaller sister domes.
