One cool fact is before Yellowstone became a national park, it was once where Native Americans used to live seasonally. It was…

    The red cliffs of Zion National Park is majestic! It’s my favorite place in all of Utah. I went here twice and I was just as amazed by its beauty the first time. It’s 2 to 3 hours drive from Las Vegas. A park great for canyoneering (also known as canyoning), which is navigating a canyon by hiking, swimming, abseiling, cliff jumping, and/or climbing. My first experience of this was a guided experience at Blue Mountains in Australia.   GETTING THERE If you need to fly, the nearest major airport to Zion is McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas. Other nearby major airports are in Salt Lake City (SLC)…

I will admit that if I stayed an additional 3 days or more, I would have trouble finding enough things to do within Antigua. Antigua has a…
