Weekend Getaways

Backcountry to Baja

Otay Mountain, Tecate, T.J. – all in a four-hour day trip.

Awhile back we traveled to Nicaragua. Much of the country’s road systems are inaccessible by car, and if you wanted to explore the interior you were forced to walk, ride a bike or rent a ...

Koudelka was into enormity

History happens

An enormous crowd pushes against an advancing tank, as if to deny its force.

Following the devil in Anza-Borrego

Close to home off-roading adventure.

Mud walls towered over us as we twisted and turned down the narrow canyon. Smoke trees scraped the truck where they leaned in over the rutted track, and a couple of times there was a ...

Overshadowed by beach destinations of the south, Zagreb, Croatia’s inland capital, should not be missed. Like several other European capitals, Zagreb is a blend of nature, culture and the characteristic pace of Europeans. What sets ...

New Zealand’s otherworldly Tongariro Crossing

The 12-mile volcanic trail is heralded as one of the country's best.

I have a mix of fear and respect for volcanoes. They are imposing, difficult to climb, and can erupt with little warning. However, when my husband and I visited New Zealand, our friends strongly recommended ...
