Here in the heart of the Blue Ridge, you'll find communities more tied to their Appalachian roots than to grand ole' Dixie. And as home to a vibrant folk arts and crafts tradition, local towns like Asheville exude an eclectic Southern charm. Take in the local color and then get outside to hike through virgin forest, mountain-bike, ride world-class whitewater, flyfish, and climb. If it's cold out, you can even plan to ski.

Gooseberry Falls is known for its spectacular waterfalls, river gorge, Civilian Conservation Corps log and stone structures and north woods wildlife. Listen to the thunderous roar of the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls of the Gooseberry River, as it plummets through a rocky gorge. Watch for waves, ships or the moon rise on Lake Superior from an ancient lava flow known as the Picnic Flow. Hike or ski to see the Fifth Falls through a forest of evergreens, aspen and birch.

It sounds surreal, and it is. At Craters of the Moon National Monument, you can explore remnants of volcanic activity like cinder cones, spatter cones, lava tubes, and a vast ocean of lava flows scattered with sagebrush. It's weird and otherworldly, but also strangely peaceful and beautiful. It's a fun sight for the whole family to learn about and enjoy.

Let your spirit soar at this park right on San Francisco Bay, where you can ride horses on the beach or let the bay breeze lift your hang glider to great heights.

Pikes Peak is the 31st highest out of the 54 in the Rocky Mountain Chain, which makes you think, hm not so impressive. It's like when you hear your state is 31st out of 50 in education--you don't feel so proud. But, you'll be pleased to learn that Pikes Peak is the MOST visited peak after Japan's Mount Fuji, which all of a sudden gives it some clout and cred. This may be so because it's the farthest East in the big chain of peaks, so when frontiersmen headed West, this was their gateway to gold.

Lost Lake Campground is couched between beautiful Lost Lake and Mount Hood. From Lost Lake Butte, the valley view is breathtaking, and from the viewpoint, guests can revel in the most majestic view of Mt. Hood, its glaciers and Lost Lake.

Just a short drive from Portland, you’ll find the amazing view from Crown Point, where you can see the mighty Columbia nestled in the Gorge unfurl before your very eyes. Thanks to its unique geography, the Gorge boasts a world of wine in just a 40-mile stretch. You’ll find pinot noir and chardonnay in the cool hills at the west end, while tempranillo and syrah thrive in the drier, sunnier east. US Congress recognized the unique splendor of the Gorge and designated it a National Scenic Area, the largest in America. And when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.

Newsflash! The roadrunner is real and it lives here in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park! Sure you can see eagles, foxes, deer and bighorn sheep, but the major attraction has got to be the beloved, and generally assumed to be fictional, roadrunner! One can only assume there might be coyotes around as well.
