This past summer, my wife and I took a 1,300-mile road trip with our 1-year-old, leaving Spokane, Washington, and heading to Bozeman, Montana, and looping through two of our most beautiful national parks: Yellowstone and Grand Teton. There were many incredible stops along the way including Jackson, Wyoming, a place we would both hope to visit again.

Jackson, Wyoming, is an easy place to love.  The town, together with the surrounding area, is known as Jackson Hole—and the two names are frequently used interchangeably, albeit inco...

“Nature says, ‘I’m going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that’s tough. I am going to snow anyway.’” - Maya Angelou speech

The Greek word for snow is chion. And when it comes to snow, you are either a phobe, euphore or a phile. A chionophobe is someone who doesn’t like snow and avoids it. Chioneuphores tolerate snow and chionophiles look forward to, and enjoy, snow and the winter months. As the days get shorter and nights get longer, fight the urge to hibernate. Instead of enduring the cold temperatures and snow by staying ind...

Maybe you’ve never heard of ice climbing before and want to get a feel for this novel sport. Maybe you’re into mountain climbing and want to take the challenge to the next level by trying your hand with ice. Maybe you’re already a pro and are used to the thrill of the adventure; the cold biting into your body, the sheer adrenaline rush that comes with being dizzyingly high above the horizon and relying on your picks and ropes for survival. Regardless of your experience level or where you’ve been able to travel for the ultimate climb, it’s about...

I’m traveling, usually on an airplane, when someone asks:

“Where are you from?”

“Idaho.” I reply.

“You live in Idaho? I didn’t know people actually live there! Isn’t that, like, just a big field of potatoes?”

What can I say? Maybe this perception is good for us. We live in a beautiful place and enjoy our solitude. On the other hand, we are blessed to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes and hearty people. It’s not all potatoes. Next time you’re in my shoes, here are a few places worth telling people about:

McCall is surrounded by the Payette N...

If you were given the opportunity to design the ultimate vacation destination in Washington, you’d start with a romantic point of waterfront tucked into the Northwest corner of the state surrounded on three sides by the pristine waters of the Puget Sound with inspirational sunsets to the west and views of a majestic Cascade peak that dominate the horizon to the east.

Your resort would have a casual atmosphere with dining options that range from fine bistros to casual eateries. Between meals, guests could divide their time between water sports,...

Located on magnificent 43-mile-long Lake Pend Oreille, in Sandpoint Idaho, surrounded by the Selkirk and Cabinet Mountains and with Schweitzer Mountain ski resort minutes away, Sandpoint is blessed with outstanding attractions.

The town itself is exceptional, home to a thriving arts community, the historic Panida Theater, a busy events schedule, a plethora of excellent restaurants, fine hotels and unusual shopping keynoted by the national retailer, Coldwater Creek. How do you describe extraordinary? Just say “Sandp...

When Canadians want to experience arid sunny weather, they head for British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, a 125-long crevasse of shimmering lakes, rolling pasturelands and dramatic vistas. Vineyards drape themselves across gentle hillsides, tucked into imposing mountainsides of forests and sagebrush. Peach, apple and cherry orchards, once the agricultural “fruit basket” of BC, nestle small hillsides with fruit stands at every turn. What was once a formidable “desert” of rattlesnakes, small cacti and unbroken landscapes now serves as Western Canad...
