Lake Cumberland Kentucky

Most native south-central Kentuckians are familiar with the benefits the Indiana and Ohio Navy bring to the small towns surrounding , Lake Cumberland.

They might even tell of a relative who aided in the sequence of events that lead to the impressive lake.

Islay’s Loch Gruinart Nature Reserve

The Minimalism of the Portage Glacier

The Portage Glacier has been a popular fixture in Alaska since its first discovery in 1898. Keep in mind that ‘discovery’ refers to a person seeing it for the first time and, more accurately, also being crediting as the first person seeing by way of recording the documents. It is doubtful that any other group of people that walked past the glacier missed seeing it. Today, however, walking past the Portage Glacier and not being able to see it may be an actual reality! The Portage Glacier is succumbing to the cruelty of the natural world and is slowly and steadily melting. — This does not mean that the Portage is not a popular spot to check out when one heads up to Alaska for a little vacation.

Best Places to See Wildlife in Nature

While a zoo definitely has it’s place in animal watching, it doesn’t compare to seeing animals in their own natural habitat. After a recent visit to Yellowstone National Park, this felt especially true for me. A traffic jam caused by young buffalo calves and their mothers crossing the road is an experience not to be missed. It made me wonder about other places that would be conducive to viewing wildlife in a natural setting.
