In St. Augustine, the Castillo is a rock star

If there is one destination in Florida that encompasses the rich tapestry of the Sunshine State's 503 years, the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument - the iconic fortress in St. Augustine - is it. The massive coquina-and-tabby structure located on Matanzas Bay has been a sentinel standing guard at the city's gates since it's construction began in 1672, making it the oldest masonry fort - and the only 17th century fort in existence - in the United States.

Canada’s First Nations return to Vancouver

Wearing a woven cedar headband that distinguished her from the other boots-and-backpack-clad hikers, Candace Campo guided a walk in Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, last fall, pointing out path-side huckleberries and blackberries. She stripped a soft piece of bark from a fraying cedar trunk to demonstrate how it can be used as fiber for clothing, and detailed how to extract vitamin C from western hemlock needles by steeping them in boiling water.

Searching for chimpanzees in the Mahale mountains

The dhow slowly makes its way south down Lake Tanganyika, the Mahale Mountains in the background. The captain keeps the boat moving extra slow, and his crew hands me sodas to combat my motion sickness. We are halfway through an adventure trip trough Tanzania — and I am focusing on the horizon to squelch the queasiness.
