>April 22 is Earth Day. To celebrate this magical planet and all the beauty on it, we wanted to highlight some of the stunning natural wonders found right here in our backyard. The next time you’re craving a new road trip, consider one of the amazing destinations below or map out your very own cross-country adventure to see them all.
12,000 years old has never looked so pretty! Located between Ontario, Canada and the state of New York, Niagara Falls are loud and lovely glacier-made waterfalls with a hefty drop of 160 feet. The real appeal for Holiday Ramblers will be the many ways you can explore these natural wonders: by ferry, trail, helicopter, and more!
If quieter, less vertical water is more your speed, steer your Holiday Rambler towards Oregon’s Cascade Mountains to bear witness to the most unique lake on the planet (and the deepest in the entire US). Formed 7,700 years ago when an eruption collapsed a mountain (!), Crater Lake’s pristine blue waters have inspired awe in all who visit. (Just make sure to check and see if it’s visible the day you plan to visit.)
Headline jokes aside, there are some truly magnificent rock formations throughout the great state of Utah, including hoodoos, arches, and something called The Island In The Sky (be still our hearts). You could spend an entire week just exploring these inspiring natural wonders. See the complete list in this great rock resource from Trip Advisor.
The Mighty Redwoods
If you’re headed to the West Coast, we highly recommend a visit to see these inspiring forest giants. These towering trees have survived the threat of industrial progress for hundreds of years. We promise: A walk through Redwood National and State Park or Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park will be one of the most awe-inspiring and humbling experiences of your life.
