UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

 

America at Barge: Within easy reach of America's East Coast cities, remnants of the halcyon days of canal trade still transport the traveller to a gentler era.

Badlands of Dakota: As you cross the Missouri, the American West opens up ahead just as it did for Wild Bill Hickok and his contemporaries.

Four Corners of the American West Hitch up your wagon! Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico meet at the epicentre of the America most foreigners imagine,an America of native peoples, awesome canyons, frontier towns - and cowboys. This is storybook America. ***2009 Winner, ASTW Best International Story Under 1,000 Words***

Follow That Eagle…  what better summertime journey than to pursue Virginia’s Appalachian parkways, from the northern tip of Shenandoah National Park, close by Washington DC, right down to the North Carolina state line or beyond, toward the Great Smokies. This is a journey where the destination is nowhere near as important as the journey.

Let Us Prey: Within an hour or so of the steel towns of eastern Pennsylvania is Hawk Mountain, a superb vantage point for North America's autumn migration of birds of prey .

Pennsylvania "Dutch" Country: True romance lies concealed just a little further below the surface of rural America than in the movie The Bridges of Madison County, yet Pennsylvania's covered bridges still draw photographers and other admirers.

Pueblo Peoples:  Meet the Native Americans who inhabit the Nineteen Pueblos,  the Indian communities of New Mexico.

Santa Fe: Southwestern Style explore New Mexico’s self-styled City Different - where even the multi-storey carparks are faced with adobe, where Pueblo Indians congregrate daily under the verandahs of the centuries-old Palace of the Governors to display jewellery hand-crafted in silver and turquoise.

Wild Wyoming It’s an image reinforced by the bucking bronco on the state's licence plates; yet Wyoming also takes in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. Wyoming is cowhands riding the range; it is also pronghorn antelope or bison lumbering across the roads, and the eerie stillness of Devils Tower at the vortex of a swirl of thunder clouds.
