Florida’s Gems

Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, FL - Located on the shoreline of America’s first European-style city, the Castillo de San Marcos is the nation’s oldest masonry fortress. This fort is made of coquina, a type of stone that is similar to limestone and looks like it’s straight out of the Old World. Tour it and enjoy the beauty of St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city!

Everglades, Miami, Naples, Homestead, FL - A world heritage site and biosphere reserve that provides habitat for countless species, the Everglades are truly a world treasure to behold. Spot crocodiles and rare, endangered manatees and majestic birds as you walk along man-made wooden paths.

Timucuan, Jacksonville, FL - Beautiful coastal wetlands on the Atlantic side of Florida, Timucuan offers breathtaking natural landscapes, like salt marshes, coastal sand dunes and hardwood hammocks. Be sure to visit Fort Caroline and the Kingsley Plantation to experience the local history.

Colorado’s Wonders

Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Montrose, CO - Carved by the winding Gunnison River over the course of two million years, the Black Canyon is a sublime and mystical place. Massive, steep cliffs are a sight to behold, while narrower crevasses provide more intimate places to explore.

Florissant Fossil Beds, Florissant, CO - Get a glimpse of the truly alien world of prehistoric Colorado with the fossil beds of Florissant, CO. Thousands of extremely well-preserved and highly detailed fossils tell the tale of a past age full of giant antediluvian creatures and strange insects.
