Mountain Ranges Mania

There are two types of people on Planet Earth - those who like beaches, and those who like mountain ranges.

If you like beaches, then go to a wimpy site somewhere else, or be converted. For the rest of us - this is where the mountain ranges are.

The Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains are nirvana for hard-core backpacking nuts. As a mountain range, the Rockies still retain their wild nature of pre-civilization.

And if the Republicans don't ravage them to support their pals who give them millions in payola (campaign contributions), they'll continue be one of the most magnificent mountain ranges on this planet.

The Himalayas
Himalaya Mountains

This may be the most fantastic mountain range on Planet Earth. For one thing, the Himalayas are the most gigantic of mountain ranges.

For another, they're hard to get to, which is a big advantage for enjoying nature in the raw. And the culture - well, the mountain culture of the Himalayas is best of all.

There is a lot more in store as we expanded the mountain ranges in The Mountain Ranges Letter is free and we send one out every couple months when we have something absolutely fascinating.
