 Article Title :: Panama Hats, Colonial Heritage, Andean Culture, the U.S. dollar: Tastes of an Ecuadorian City
Ecuador’s Cuenca, a city of 300,000, sits in what passes for a valley in the Andes: It is 8,200 feet above sea level and flanked by still higher mountains.It carries the legacy of Spanish occupation in its lovely Old Town, now a Unesco World Heritage Site.And it is renowned as the home of the Panama hat — yes, the Panama hat. Tourism centers on the Old Town, of course, and the starting point for sightseers must be the central Plaza Calderon, which underwent a six-month restoration, completed in 2002.The most appealing building here is the 16th century Old Cathedral which was also restored, but for use as a cultural space.Its replacement as a house of worsh  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Camping on Catalina Island
Preparing for a Catalina Island camping trip requires some careful planning and packing, as you won't have your car or RV with you.Since the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy owns most of Catalina, the natural beauty is well preserved, so you are in for a real treat.There are five campgrounds on the island, not counting the boat-in campsites. Most people arrive by ferry or private boat, so you want to pack enough, but not too much.A permit is required by all campers, which can be obtained at the Two Harbors Visitor Services or Avalon's Island Plaza. When arriving at the island, you must check in with them before going to your campground.For Catalina Island ca  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Visiting Malibu And Its Many Beaches
Malibu isn't just a beach; it's practically a whole coastline. Stretching for roughly 27 miles, Malibu comprises about a dozen beaches from Decker Rd. (Hwy. 23) in the west, to Topanga Canyon Blvd. in the east. At this part of the California coast, the beaches face mostly rather than west, except for Westward Beach near Pt. Dume.The Malibu beaches lie along the base of the Santa Monica Mountains, which are so often subjected to the vicious circle of fires, floods and mudslides. The Pacific Coast Highway, or PCH, is squeezed between the beach and the cliffs much of the way. The ocean side is lined with highway hugging houses of the mostly rich and/or famous.The beaches th  (read full article)

The largest small craft harbor in the United States, Newport Beach Harbor in Newport Beach, California is not only picturesque, but also full of recreational boating opportunities, from taking a harbor cruise to renting a kayak.

 Article Title :: Michigan Outdoors - Hidden Places
In Michigan, being outdoors can mean relaxing on a sandy beach or getting lost in the wilderness. One of the hidden places described below will let you do both. Here are three places that you haven't seen in magazine articles and guide books.Michigan Outdoors - RiversYou can float the Manistee River from Baxter Bridge (the next crossing down from Hwy 131) north of Cadillac, all day without seeing a house or a road. The majority of the route is in the Manistee National Forest, where you can camp without permits. The Manistee isn't a river full of exciting rapids (at least not on this stretch). It is a river for relaxing.A few years back, we used to park where Ro  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Reasons People Say They Don't Want to go Whitewater Rafting and Why They are Wrong
It’s not uncommon to find reasons why people don’t want to go whitewater rafting. Rollercoaster’s keep you safe, skydiving has a parachute and bungee jumping has well, a bungee. But rafting? Rafting only has a life jacket that keeps you afloat but not necessarily out of the water. That said hesitant people tend to look at the same problems of rafting and talk themselves out of a trip when statistically you’re safer going down the river than driving there. They don’t strap you into the boat so you can fall out. As much as it pains me that I can’t actually strap some of my guests down to the boat the reality is that you are actually safer t  (read full article)

 Article Title :: So You've Been Rafting Once and Didn't Die - Is it Now Time to Try a Harder River?
I’ve heard it more times than I can count. “I want something bigger!” but guides have a saying. Everyone wants to raft a class V until they swim a class III. With every jump up the class scale the prospect of falling out and having problems increases. What most rafters don’t realize is that not only do their guides provide the confidence instilled in them but that all guides are not alike. I would recommend that if you’re in the market for a jump up to look at the other rivers the company offers and stick with the same outfitter.But alas if you must run Cherry Creek or Bert Ranch Gorge in California then make sure you’re ready for the piss-your-pants   (read full article)

 Article Title :: How Deep is the Water? Do We Go in a Circle? Top Overly Asked Questions Whitewater Guide Answers
How deep is the water? Are we on a track? Do we end where we started? I’ve been a guide long enough to get most of the stupid questions that make some logical sense in the guests minds when they ask but get only a groan and pre-recorded answer form me. Over the past few years I’ve come up with cookie cutter answers and will against every logical reason to let you in on a few secrets so you’re guide doesn’t make you look like an idiot in front of your friends when you ask, “If they turn on the water by using a large hose?” Q: How deep is the water? A: “Chest high to a duck,” I say or “Just above the fishes heads.” Seriously I have no idea h  (read full article)

 Article Title :: What Do You Bring Whitewater Rafting?
You’re hands are sweaty with excitement and a dash of fear. The trip has been on the calendar for two months and it’s all the office can talk about. But what do you bring on a whitewater rafting trip? Do you need dry clothes? Sunglasses? Sunscreen? To simplify things I’ve written down a few must haves and some optional items as well. Remember that every outfitter is a bit different and some may provide a few of the items below so a quick call to the outfitters office may be in order. Clothes: Most trips taken during the summer are met with hot dry weather. Of course there are exceptions but most of the time swim trunks and bathing suits are in order.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: You Just Got Signed Up for a Rafting Trip and are Petrified of Water, Now What the Heck Do You Do?
Trust me I’ve seen it all before. Crying guests, scared rafters and the myriad of jitters in between. But relax most likely you—yes the scared little knees-shaking lifejacket-wearing individual—will be the one who at the end of the day wants to go bigger, swim the next rapid and try guiding the boat.Rafting takes a certain amount of blind faith. There is no guarantee that everything will work out. Think of it like the first day of high school. There are rumors that freshman get beat up but most likely on the last day of Senior year the first day four years ago will make you laugh. You don’t necessarily know what to expect and if you do fall out of the boat the  (read full article)
