Mountain trail map
This is the map of the mountain that we “conquered.” An interesting quest would be to find on the map our routes from the mountain albums. Since all the trails and lifts that we used are noted in picture titles or descriptions, this is a perfectly doable and entertaining task.

Steamboat's main skiing mountain-first run
(Feb 20, 2017)
We did not take the camera up on the first day (were scared), but our second day on the mountain was much nicer: bright and sunny. On our first run we went all the way to the top and slowly went down the easiest (green) trails.

Hot Springs
(Feb 19, 2017)
After a day of skiing, it is a special pleasure to take a dip in hot springs. After our first skiing day we went to Old Town Hot Springs in downtown Steamboat Springs, and the following day we met the sunset at much more secluded Strawberry Park Hot Springs.

Turtle nesting beach
(Sep 8, 2014)
This 23-mile-long beach hosts the largest green turtle rookery in the Western Hemisphere. Only official tours are allowed on the beach when turtles lay eggs at night, and photography is not permitted. I have found a video - http://youtu.be/IbIPJYU3Uv0?t=10s – where you can see the process, and the album shows what one can see on the beach in the morning: turtle tracks, black vultures hunting for eggs, etc.

Silk Cayes: under the sea
We tried our best to identify the creatures we were swimming with. However, they were so abundant that we failed to figure out the names of several ones. If you know the names of those, your help in comments will be appreciated.

Silk Cayes: above the sea
(Jan 22, 2017)
Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve is a protected marine reserve in the central part of Belize's Barrier Reef 22 mi off the coast of Placencia. The reserve contains some of the healthiest parts of the reef system due to its elevation and good water quality.
Gladden Spit is a promontory forming the southernmost tip of the sunken atoll. Three small cayes: North Silk, Middle Silk and South Silk, lie south of Gladden entrance.
It took us about an hour to get to these tiny cayes. Together with other tourist groups, we were based on the South Silk Caye, snorkeling around which was a lot of fun.

Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness 2016, Part I
(Sep 6, 2016)
No motor boats are allowed in this wild place, where we spent enjoyable four days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boundary_Waters_Canoe_Area_Wilderness
The first album is about days one and two of the trip. We paddled towards our camp site on Alder Lake, set up a camp, and on our second day went to Johnson Falls.

Часах в 8-ми езды на север от Чикаго, прямо на границе с Канадой есть такое прекрасное дикое место с тысячей озёр. На этих озёрах запрещены моторные лодки, и каноэ из одного озера в другое носят на плечах. Вот мы тоже поносили. В этом альбоме - первые два дня нашего водного похода.

Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness 2016, Part II
(Sep 8, 2016)
We spent the third day on Alder Lake – fishing and cooking our catch. On the fourth day we headed back.

Третий день мы провели на озере Алдер, у которого стояла наша палатка – ловили рыбу, варили уху, любовались природой. На четвёртый день мы отправились назад и в самом конце попали под сильный дождь. Зато после дождя вокруг было очень живописно, даже радуга была!
