Feast the eyes in cooler climes at Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, is such a feast for the eyes that more than a million people from around the world visit every year. Located on the eastern rim of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, the park features natural amphitheaters filled with a colorful landscape of spires, pinnacles and pillars called hoodoos.

Golf clinic attendees give advice in event of a stroke

I want you to meet a pair of very dedicated golfers. They love golf and participate monthly in organized golf events. They work on their games and can tell you how long they drive the ball. One shares how proud she is of her new driver; the other can tell stories of when he was third man on his college golf team. Both wear big smiles when on the course.

Angels Landing is a do-if-you-dare hike

Angels Landing in Zion National Park, Utah, is a viewpoint atop a giant red sandstone monolith, offering one of the best panoramic views in the park, which is to say one of the best in the American West. The 5-mile round-trip hike to Angels Landing is famous among hikers throughout the world, mostly because it is one scary trail, especially in the last bone-chilling half-mile. If this hike is on your bucket list, it’s good to do it in spring, after the sun has melted any ice that might have made the path slick and before summer brings the year’s largest crowds to the park and hot temperatures.
