The Everglades/The Great Smoky Mountains/The Black Hills and The Badlands
While my interest in natural history has added very little to my sum of achievement, it has added immeasurably to my sum of enjoyment in life. – President Theodore Roosevelt
There is no place on the planet like the Everglades. It is where two great biomes of life meet - the tropical and the temperate mid-latitude, which makes up much of the continental United States. Discover the mystery and wonder of the Everglades firsthand as you enjoy breathtaking aerial views and amazing ground tours with the park rangers. Spanning over 60 miles, it is the widest river in the world. It has been described as a RIVER OF GRASS…this wonderland of life is a subtropical paradise that mystifies the mind and nurtures the soul.
The Great Smoky Mountains
Great Smoky Mountain National Park rests in the geographic province known as the Blue Ridge Mountains, named for their distinctive blue appearance when seen from a distance. The park covers over 500,000 acres of breath-taking beauty, filled with lush highland meadows, glorious waterfalls, pristine mountain streams, the highest mountain tops in the Appalachians and, to crown it all, it encompasses one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world.
The Black Hills and The Badlands
Nestled in the heart of America’s Great Plains are the distinct landscapes of a sacred land that beckons the visitor to enter the nation’s mysterious and glorious west. A land of soaring pinnacles, deep canyons, hidden caves, national monuments and countless wildlife sanctuaries. Discover the wonder and awe of these contrasting spectacles of the West, one soaring, rich in forests and water and the other barren and deeply eroded, which are brought together by a shared geology and history. They are the Gateway to the Great American West. They are the Black Hills and the Badlands.
