Yellowstone, WY, Lamar Valley Just east of Tower-Roosevelt, this area provides one of the most plentiful opportunities to catch a glimpse of Yellowstone's exotic wildlife such as elk, bison, osprey, bald eagles, antelope, moose, black bears and grizzlies, as well as bears and wolves. Early morning and late evening are the times of day where you're most likely to have the best luck.
Fall Creek Falls State Park, located in Central, TN is a hidden gem - stunning! It is the largest TN state park, has six waterfalls, one of which is the highest east of the Mississippi, six spectacular look outs and the second largest cave chamber in the U.S. I've been here several times over the years.... would go back again!
CA: near San Diego. Anza Borrego is one of those hikes that you never realized you had right in California. The slot canyon is a beautiful natural formation nestled in the heart of the Anza Borrego State Park, about an hour and a half East of San Diego. The park has no fees to enter, thousands of miles to explore and off-road on. It even has unique areas such as the palm tree oasis of Hellhole Canyon, abandoned mines and of course the slot canyon itself.
