My Dream View; Niagra Falls

My Niagara Falls experience.

I am so excited to see the famous Niagara Falls. So I wake early and pack my things. It was already raining when we boarded the bus heading to the Falls. We hardly see any of the scenic places from our window due to the heavy rainfall but thanks to our tour guide who kept on describing each spot we are passing through. 

This was my first time to visit the falls and even though it rained, I was still looking forward to experiencing the Falls up close in all its splendor. Be it from the view deck of the Falls or from behind them, I wanted to feel the spray on my face and hear the distinct sound of the Falls. And I got the opportunity to do just that! 

We were all wet when we entered the tourist registration area to get a pass for the exhilarating journey behind the Falls tour. After our tickets were collected, we were each given biodegradable rain to protect ourselves from the mist. We walked inside the tunnel till we reached the upper observation deck.  Read more »

Pikes Peak in Colorado Journey

A TRULY UNIQUE COLORADO EXPERIENCE that I will treasure forever. 

A ride on the Pikes Peak train is more than a mode of getting from point A to point B: It’s a journey filled with wonder, not to mention bragging rights and one-and-only encounters. If you like train trivia, get ready for some mind-blowing facts. 

The Cog Railway enchantment begins the moment you claim your seat in one of the cardinal-red cars. All of the existing trains have undergone significant enhancements recently (think comfortable new seats and floors, upgraded sound systems and converted axles). Three of the trains are brand new and came all the way to Colorado from Switzerland. That’s right — the Swiss company Stadler is the only manufacturer in the world that makes the equipment needed for The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway. After all, this isn’t any ordinary train: It’s one of two cog railways in the country and approximately 40 across the globe. 

Adding to the Cog Railway’s charms is the fact that it’s the highest altitude train of its kind — chugging to the summit at 14,115 feet — and it’s set on one of the most-visited mountains in the world. (Pikes Peak aka “America’s Mountain,” of course.) 

For a double dose of extraordinary, hike the 13-mile Barr Trail to the top of Pikes Peak where the cozy cars will be waiting to carry you back down, giving your legs a much-needed rest. Or, book a Cog Up/Bike Down trip to take the train to the summit. From there, you’ll clip in and wind down Pikes Peak Highway through almost 20 miles of exhilarating curves and unparalleled mountain views. 

And, seasonal trains will thrill every member of the family. Where else can you ride a shiny red train through snow-tipped evergreens as Santa Claus spreads Christmas cheer in the seat across the aisle? 

I am not kidding when I said this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Read more »

Camping: The Budget Outing

Camping: The Budget Outing
Who doesn’t want to spend quality time out? Everyone wants so. Don’t you? But running low on
budget is the main hurdle to fulfill this dream. But here, we will discuss how to turn this dream
about budget outings into reality. In the daily exaggerated routine, everyone must spend some
quality time to make himself relaxed and this is much important to keep going for the daily
burden of work.

Camping is one of the budget and wallet friendly outing plans. Spending quality time with
friends, spouse or family is the most heart-warming experience, one will ever have. Camping is
the temporary stay at some area other than home. It has its own numerous benefits which will
be discussed later.

A Mesmerizing Start of Day:
Staying away from the daily routine of load and stress is only possible by camping at some hilly
area with a lake in front. When you open eyes in the morning, the beautiful reflection of the sun
welcomes you. The crystal clear water and the green moss bed and the cool breeze tickles you to
feel you in heaven and much more. Your alarm will be the mesmerizing sound of birds, chirping
to awake you from the sound sleep. The view of the sky in the night will be a lullaby for you. The
day spent in camp is better than a year in an apartment.

Should I take a Road Trip?

Road trips are a fun vacation idea. They promise thrilling experiences and are easy to plan. You can even be a bit spontaneous and just let the road take you to your next adventure. But like everything else, there are pros and cons. Here we will highlight them to help you decide if they are right for you!

Pros

• Road trips are economical. They are definitely less expensive than trains, buses or airplanes. You can find cheap accommodations along the way or you can camp!

• Road trips give you freedom. You can choose where you go, change direction and even leave if you are not having a good time.

• Road trips allow you to pack whatever you want! You don’t have to be limited to one or two suitcases. You can throw as much as you like into your trunk.

Cons

• There is going to be a lot of driving! If you don’t love driving, it may be a good idea to pair up with a buddy who does. Long road trips can be exhausting.

• Parking can be a hassle. There is no guarantee that they will be adequate, safe parking facilities. Read more »

The Joys of Summer Fishing

If you’re anything like me, as soon as the sun comes out, so too does your fishing rod. After all, as fishing nuts everywhere will tell you, the only thing better than fishing, is fishing in the sunshine. To tell you the truth, the thought of it alone has me hankering for the long summer days ahead. Not that you can really blame me for that. Sure, the other seasons have a lot going for them as well. Ice fishing up Lake of the Woods way is a life-affirming experience. As is trout fishing on Montana’s Madison River when spring is in the air. But, even still, there’s just something about summer fishing that sets it apart from the rest.

Appreciating that something is special is one thing. Pinpointing what makes it so; quite another. Who knows, maybe the promise of cloudless skies and warm waters makes summer fishing special. On the other hand, maybe it’s reconnecting with youthful riverbank adventures that are the key. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s that you can barely move for all the fish shoaling off America’s coast at this magical time of year. Could that be it? Part of me certainly thinks so. Another part of me, however, isn’t so sure. This part of me, my skeptical half, refuses to accept that the allure of summer fishing can be reduced to one thing and one thing alone. This part of me, you see, prefers to think of it as a personal patchwork of undimmed memories, endless evenings, and, lest we forget, jumbo-sized hauls. Read more »
