For Your Consideration
50 Best American Adventures ||| April/May 2009

Our ranking of top U.S. adventures also generated a wave of heartfelt responses, including suggestions for another 50 best (see our favorites below), and one kind but firm clarification from a loyal Canadian subscriber: “The author writes, ‘No other country has an expanse of fresh water like the Great Lakes. . . . ’ Surely that should have read, ‘No other country, except for Canada, has an expanse of fresh water like the Great Lakes. . . .’”

#51: Canoe the Lower Canyons of the Rio Grande.

#52: Narrows in Zion National Park. Most of the trail is in the river.

#53: Trek to the Blue Hole on Kauai.

#54: Take the Durango-to-Silverton, CO, train halfway to hike the Chicago Basin.

#55: Paddle half a mile across the Pacific from Cape Alava, WA, to Ozette Island.
