Sick Of The Heat? 40 Places Where You Can Cool Off

Sick Of The Heat? 40 Places Where You Can Cool Off Jul 24th, 2012 at 4:00PM: Most people look for warm places to visit. I look for cold ones. I live near Washington, D.C., and by mid-July, I've had it with the suffocating heat and humidity. I've taken escape-the-heat trips almost every summer over the last five years to places like Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Maine and the Pacific Northwest. The lower the temperature the better as far as I'm concerned, especially...

Tragedy in the Grand Tetons is a warning to stay on firm footing

Tragedy in the Grand Tetons is a warning to stay on firm footing Sep 24th, 2009 at 10:30AM: Even with the best of plans, tragedies happen. A mountain side is too steep, the terrain too rugged, one turns left instead of right, and a person can take a tumble. That's what happened on Tuesday when two hikers veered slightly off-course on Teewinot Mountain in the Grand Teton National Park. One of them slipped and tumbled 300-feet. The tumble killed him. According to Kurt Repanshek's post in...

Photo of the Day (11.01.08) Nov 1st, 2008 at 10:00AM: I'm in Glacier National Park this weekend, so this photo taken by Don&Colleen is fitting.
