Incredible water falls, tropical paths, wildlife, snowcapped mountains, and dramatic sunsets - some of the experiences waiting around every mountain pass, open meadow and seashore - domestic or abroad, we have many wonderful experiences that can be planned around your interests.   As Lance and me visit more national and state parks, and their surrounding areas, we will add them to the list below.  However, we can assist in arranging a vacation at any of the national and state parks in the United States.  I look forward to talking with you, soon.

Located in Southwest, Florida, hiking and biking are two great ways to experience the park.  Weather you bike along the main access roads inside the park - leading to access points to view Myakka Lake shores - a great place to photograph native birds, or hike along trails dotted with Palmetto and Palm, Myakka River State Park is what native Florida is all about!  

Rainbow River State Park, Florida:

Located in Dunnellon, Florida, which is in the southwest corner of Marion County Florida.  (20 miles southwest of Ocala, 100 miles northwest of Orlando and 100 miles north of the Tampa Bay area.)  Rainbow Springs State Park, once the site of the old Rainbow Springs Attraction, is Florida's third largest spring. The springs basin, the azalea gardens, the river wetlands, and sandhill pine forest are home to many species of plants and animals.  Colorful plants, cascading waterfalls and creeks flowing delicately over small rocks and pebbles - simply, a most peaceful experience, a key characteristic of this beautiful park.  (Canoe rentals start at $10.00 p/hour!)

In the late 1800's Glacier was established as our countries 10th national park.  700 miles of trails makes Glacier National Park a hiker's paradise for adventurous visitors seeking wilderness and solitude.  Spring and summer activities include Horseback Riding, Hiking, Camping, Road Biking, and Fishing!  In winter, Cross Country Skiing is Glacier's specialty - Anne & Lance can help you create an itinirary that fits exactly into your style of adventure!  For amateur and pro photographers breathtaking scenery is nothing less than amazing anytime of the year!

The lodges and inns located throughout Glacier National Park provide a range of accommodations. Visitors may chose from rooms in historic grand hotels dating back to the early 1900's, modern motel type accommodations, rustic cabins, or historic backcountry chalets.

Yosemite National Park:

First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is home to cascading waterfalls, deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, all in nearly 1,200 square miles.  Another destination for photographers, capturing the "grandscapes" of Yosemite can become an obsession.  Like most national and state parks, Yosemite is open all year.  However because of extreme weather in the winter months, (normally between Nov. and May), some roads and lodges may be closed and thus accommodations inside and out of the park may be closed.  No worries!  We have all the details on who, where and when to book your winter vacation! Skiing: Winter months provide for terrific skiing.  As of January 20th 2013, ski trails have a base around 46" on packed and packed powder!  Perfect! 

Camping: Always available on a first come first serve basis.  We look forward to helping you plan a vacation in one of the most beautiful places on Earth!
