Europe is great and Asia is awesome, but the song says America the beautiful.
These hidden places prove you don’t need to spend big bucks and make a transatlantic trek– the world’s most beautiful wonders have been here all along, right in your American backyard.
1. Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Fur trappers stumbled upon this “boiling lake” less than 200 years ago.
2. Kilauea Volcano and Thurston Lava Tube at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Kilauea has been spewing lava without stop since 1983 in what is one of the longest-lived volcanic eruptions of modern times. Below it snakes a complex cave network that was carved from a river of lava 500 years ago.
3. Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine
George Washington himself oversaw construction on this lighthouse, which originally burned lamps made with whale oil.
4. Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska
Snuggled on the tip of Alaska, this Arctic Amazon is bursting with caribou, raptors, wolverines, and… wait for it… baby porcupines.
5. Salt Lake Temple and Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah
Like at other Latter-day Saints temples, you’ll need to get baptized and meet with a bishop before you go inside. Once you do, 10 acres of one of Brigham Young’s first churches are yours to explore.
6. Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado
We think the indigenous Ute tribe is responsible for the cryptic etchings we’ve found on this park’s red rock walls. We’ve also found carefully-built fire rings from 3,000 years ago.
7. Gila Cliff Dwellings in Catron, New Mexico
Scholars are fairly certain these intricate caverns were home to American Indian families over 700 years ago. From them, we’ve unearthed a mummified infant whom researchers call Zeke.
8. Palouse Falls in Franklin/Whitman Counties, Washington
In 2009, kayaker Tyler Bradt ran his kayak — on purpose — down the 180-foot drop.
9. Windsor Ruins in Claiborne County, Mississippi
A wealthy landowner used slave labor to build this expansive plantation house in the 1800s. He died a few weeks after moving in, and a freak fire later burned down the building. All that remain are 23 crumbling, solitary columns.
10. Painted Hills in Wheeler County, Oregon
The different-colored bands represent the hills’ slow growth over 30 million years. Archeologists have found remains of primitive camels and rhinos here.
11. White Sands National Monument in Alamogordo, New Mexico
This flat is incredibly rare because it’s made of gypsum, which is usually dissolved by rainfall.
12. Horseshoe Bend near Page, Arizona
Grand Canyon looky-loos forget to seek out this funky-shaped bend in the Colorado River, which is “nearby” in Arizona terms.
13. Castle Rock in Gove County, Kansas
Eons ago, an ancient sea covered the Midwest. This chalk deposit 11 miles off the freeway is our souvenir.
14. Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon
Home of the real Oregon Trail.
15. Skagit Valley tulip fields in Mount Vernon, Washington
You don’t have to schlep to Amsterdam for fields that burst into bloom– there’s more serenity and space at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, which locals celebrate each April.
16. Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park, California
You’ve always thought “Star Wars” was filmed in a galaxy far, far away. It wasn’t.
17. Gillette Castle State Park in East Haddam, Connecticut
This estate belonged to actor William Gillette, famous for portraying Sherlock Holmes onstage in the 1900s. Gillette named his cobblestoned castle Seventh Sister and installed a series of hidden mirrors to monitor guests at all times.
18. Canyon de Chelly National Monument in Apache County, Arizona
According to Navajo tradition, Spider Rock’s second spire is home to Spider Woman, the creator of the free world.

After doing a bunch of videos about the bikes at Outerbike Crested Butte, we’re doing one about the trails at Evolution Bike Park, I enjoyed riding this bike park so much its worth taking a look at the variety there is here. Also, I want to include Evolution Bike Park on the rides map on my new site, go check it out if you haven’t i think its a pretty cool feature.
The first trails we’re goint to take a look at are the ones in the center of the mountain as they’re what most people probably do first, and we’re starting at Hotdogger, its the Green trail the park tells you to ride first time down and I think its a good choice; you’d probably think it’d be boring being a green trail, but it really is not. This trail has significant flow but refrains from any technical features that would make begginers uncomfortable, the rollers are big enough that an experienced rider can enjoy taking them at speed and pumping while a begginer can do them slower without much intimidation. This one will get you going fast and with nice berms and a wide trail it will be a great one to just have fun on.
Avery happens to have been my favorite trail down the main section of the mountain, it had a little bit of everything but was mostly oriented as a Technical trail with a fair amount of rock gardens, steep sections, roots and wooden drops. It was also a lot tighter than all the trails we previously looked at. Good thing is there is nothing particularly killer about it, there’s just one 6ft drop to look out for that you can bypass. That being said, this is one to stay on your toes on, a slight lack of concentration can get you in trouble quickly.
Teaser was my favorite flow trail on the mountain, and according to most people I spoke to, theirs too. This is a popular choice definitely worth taking a couple of runs at, the big berms make it easy to keep speed up and the jumps are not too big with mellow lips, perfect to work on improving those jumps.
On to Frequency, this one kicked my ass, only trail I crashed on, which of course happened the first day when I was getting a little too balsy too soon. Frequency is probably the toughest blue trail here, its full of jumps and speed, and while just cruising through it is pretty easy, getting a perfect run in is tough as this is a trail that has you working non stop and it feels like its a lot longer than Luge despite the fact that they’re one next to the other and eventually merge into one.
Prospector is your typical CO ride, nice open fields with the ocassional traverese through aspens with a nice elevation loss to distance ratio.
Woods is a lot steeper than prospector and is on the same face of the mountain so its a lot shorter, but with more challenge and some great wooden features, including two huge wallrides, one of which I skipped as I only did this trail once and riding blind I was not going to hit it; although it did look like it was doable with enough speed and loads of fun. The trail ends with what seems like prospector but with nice long table tops.
Crusader is one I’m sorry I only did once, the first run through I was too busy looking at the end of the wooden features making sure there were no crazy mandatory drops, with some extra speed this one would have been a lot more fun. The feature I skipped was steep, seriously steep, a few people in the group hit and swear its the steepest feature they’ve ever done.
Last but not least, Westside, as the name says its on the west side of the mountain and you can follow this one down to the lift or use to connect into happy hour and go down into town, which never did unfortunately, somehow we were always late and in a hurry to get the bikes back to Outerbike in time. Westside is split into three trails, but while riding it you won’t really notice that, they flow one into the other. This trail is amazing, it feels like you’re no where near a bike park, it has the perfect combination of long descent with varying steepness while even providing some short punchy rocky climbs in a few spots along the way to break things up. Best of all, this crazy long trail leads straight back to the base, get on the lift and go again.
Evolution Bike Park was a blast and a great setting to test bikes on, with a nice variety of DH specific and more natural enduro feel trails there’s a place to ride here for almost all skill levels, granted, people with more skills will get more out of this place. I, for example, never did Psycho Rocks which is an iconic trail here, or Timeline which is a huge jumpline, I’ll leave those to the dedicated downhill guys.

Phantom Vision flight #2
Stomp around with us in Elkhorn in the southwestern part of our state of Montana. Silver was initially discovered in the Elkhorn Mountains and over $14 million in silver was carried from the mines in the area. In 1890, the Sherman Silver Purchase Act passed, creating a high demand for Elkhorn’s silver.
During this peak period, Elkhorn boasted 2,500 inhabitants, a school, hotel, church, stores, saloons, and brothels. Unlike most mining towns, Elkhorn was populated mostly by married European immigrants. In 1893 the Fraternity Hall was constructed for social gatherings, and still remains as one of the most well-preserved buildings in modern Elkhorn.
In the years following, the silver boom and Elkhorn’s prosperity began to lessen as the desire for silver decreased. A diphtheria epidemic also struck Elkhorn, resulting in many deaths, particularly of children. Soon after, railroad service to Elkhorn was halted and only a fraction of the original inhabitants remained.
This sequence was shot in the summer of 2001.
