Beautiful Montana: Kootenai Falls and Suspension Bridge.

Kootenai Falls is not a waterfall like Niagara Falls, but boy, is it powerful. Located on the Kootenai River, these falls are more like whitewater river-rafting falls rather than huge, view-from-a-packed-boat-like-sardines-in-a-can falls (like Niagara Falls). Located at Kootenai River Rd, Libby, MT 59923, it sits in the top, most-western corner of Montana, in a rather …

Montana: The Most Beautiful State in America.

While Sedona is still one of my favorite places ever, Montana is hands down my absolute favorite state in the whole country. I had seen photos of this gorgeous state for years, only being able to picture it in my head. So, being able to finally visit it, and by car (the best way to …

Mogollon, New Mexico: One of the Wildest Mining Towns in the Wild West.

It was quite a feat getting to this once flourishing mining town nestled deep within the Mogollon Mountains in western New Mexico. Mogollon sits approximately 12 miles from the nearest "town", Glenwood (population: 139), and only 3 miles of that is highway. The rest is a 9-mile precarious road, to say the least, which has …

Geiranger, Norway: Trolls and Mountains.

One of the most beautiful little villages I’ve ever seen, Geiranger is extremely small, with only around 200 to 250 residents calling it home year-round. And yet… it’s the 3rd most popular cruise ship port in the entire country of Norway, generally coming in behind Ålesund and Bergen. It’s located in the Sunnmøre region of Møre og Romsdal county, …

“3 Corners”: Stand in Three States at One Time!

The “4 Corners’” lesser known, less popular cousin, I didn’t even know the “3 Corners” existed until this year (2021). Almost everyone knows about the “4 Corners” in the Southwest, but few know about the three states that meet in the Midwest. I had never heard of it until I researched things to do for …

Walnut Canyon National Monument.

So to start off, I'm going to tell everyone something about this place that nobody told us: IT’S INSANELY WINDY. You really have nooo clue what is about to hit you as you park and walk to the front doors of the entrance/visiting center. It's not windy at all up there. Not even a little …

Horseshoe Bend: Incredible and Magnificent.

A true marvel of nature’s power and one of the most beautiful natural sights I’ve ever seen, Horseshoe Bend is one of my all-time favorite places - ever 😍. While there is not much to do other than gaze at the insane product of millions of years of nature’s ingenuity, it’s well worth a trip. …

Plymouth Rock: The Landing Spot of the Pilgrims (allegedly).

Honestly, Plymouth is delightful! It's (obviously) located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, inside Pilgrim Memorial State Park. Plymouth Rock is definitely the main attraction of the area, and it is located right alongside the beach. It’s in a surprisingly tranquil and scenic location, given the hustle and bustle of the East Coast we had previously experienced, and …

Grafton, Utah: “The most photographed ghost town in the West”.

The expansive Utahan desert, right outside of Grafton. Tucked down a bumpy, 3-mile partial dirt road, sits a little known and extremely cool ghost town. Located in the southwestern corner of Utah, not a soul lives in this completely deserted place, which is probably very creepy at night (there are ranch homes nearby, but nobody …

Berlin, Germany: A Quick Trip to the Fatherland.

***Just like in my Helsinki blog (Helsinki, Finland: “The Pearl of the Baltic Sea”.), my fashion sense during this period of my life was horrendous. I'm well aware LOL.*** 🥲 I always wanted to visit Germany, as my mother’s entire side of the family hails from there. I am a 3rd generation American on my …
