Strawberry Hill, Jamaica

Strawberry Hill, Jamaica

The ascent to Strawberry Hill is one of the most thrilling rides ever. Leaving the oppressive heat of Kingston behind, winding upwards through the narrow roads, lush green vegetation and occasional hairpin bend of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains to an elevation of 3100 feet above sea level, is quite a journey.

Napo Wildlife Centre

Sundance lies on the Eastern slopes of 12,000 ft Mount Timpanagos in Utah. Centuries ago, the Ute Indians retreated to this Canyon, to escape the summer heat and hunt the plentiful supply of game. In 1969, actor Robert Redford bought land in the area with a vision for environmental conservation […]
