A Chilly Trek through Crater Lake NP (by Mike Baker)

A Chilly Trek through Crater Lake NP (by Mike Baker)

Sitting amid southern Oregon’s Cascade Mountains at 1,833 feet, Crater Lake National Park is a recreational wonderland that attracts skiers, sledders, snowboarders, snowmobilers, and snowshoers each winter, thanks to a 43-foot average yearly snowfall. But this playground was once a dangerous place to live for the original Native Americans who lived here when Mount Mazama erupted just over 7,700 years ago. The cataclysm decapitated the mountain, removed roughly a half mile of elevation and spread ash hundreds of miles away. Between 200 and 300 feet of ash and pumice settled near the eruption, which, due to hot gasses, eventually formed solidified columns...

Vivacious Variety in Olympic National Park (by Mike Baker)

Vivacious Variety in Olympic National Park (by Mike Baker)

Established in 1938 by Franklin D Roosevelt, Olympic was the nation's 21st National Park, founded on Washington's rugged northwest peninsula and named after 7,980' Mount Olympus. It is an International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site, two designations granted to the park due to a rich geography that includes hundreds of species of animals (including over 300 species of birds) and over 1,100 species of plants. The park's distinct ecosystems create a range of diversity rarely found elsewhere: a rugged coastline, glacier-capped mountains, forests, and rivers. The peninsula's diversity attracted –and kept– pre-historic humans, who hunted mastodon with stone-tipped spears as far back as 12,000 years ago, supplementing their diet with deer, elk, and gathered plants. Fish, marine mammals, and shellfish were provided by the...

The Man Cave Collection – Vintage Poster Art Perfect for Any Man's Clubhouse

"Men are known for their wit, and while our woeful wives may wear weary expressions when we woo them with witty wordings, our wittiness is never truly wasted. Step into the wondrous wonderland of your man cave. Here your willingness to wink, wiggle, and warble in your own wit is always welcome!" That's right; the man cave is any man's secret abode, his castle, his proverbial grownup pillow fort, his temple at which to worship all things manly. It's the place where he can let the caveman out, the last sanctuary where he can shirk the suit and tie of...

An Atlantic Daydream at Acadia (by Mike Baker)

An Atlantic Daydream at Acadia (by Mike Baker)

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park—originally named Lafayette National Park—America's 12th national park and the first east of the Mississippi River. The park's 420 million year-old location, Mount Desert Island, was first discovered by French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1604, whose description of its bare granite mountains stuck for centuries. Eventually, the island’s pristine beauty attracted the attention of the burgeoning wealthy elite of 19th Century New England, who built lavish summer homes amid its "fjard", moraine, and glacial erratic geology.  Two such elite were John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and George Dorr, whose love for the...
