Planning a Trip to the Black Hills

Known as “America’s best idea,” there’s no better way to see what the country is all about than at its national parks. I spent last summer visiting Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Rocky Mountain national parks and knew I wanted to see more this year. I headed for the Black Hills, an area of South Dakota and […]

A City Girl’s Guide to Sheridan, Wyoming

I’ve never claimed to be a country girl, but for some reason, the small towns of the West appeal to me. I start to think about what life would be like in them. Last summer, I fell in love with Jackson Hole, the wealthiest place in Wyoming. And this summer, I visited the second wealthiest: […]

Catching the Sunrise on Masada

My alarm went off as I’d just fallen asleep and I stirred to get dressed in the dark in my Jerusalem dorm room. I grabbed my bag and made my way to the walls of the Old City, where the bus picked me up. The tour bus was already full and all I could focus […]
