The Hallerbos looks like every other forest in Flanders at first sight. But this all changes Mid April. Then the Hallerbos becomes something fairylike: a beautiful purple carpet of bluebells.
Just outside of Rapid City, South Dakota, we decided to do a little hike to enjoy the beautiful nature in Black Hills National Forest. We ended up going to Buzzards Roost, where you have different options to hike or mountain bike.
Zion National Park is located in Utah and is dominated by Zion Canyon. We already visited this National Park twice, as it has so much to offer. You keep coming back to it. And we are not alone: it is one of the most popular parks in Utah. Zion National Park is most famous for The Narrows and Angels Landing.
Starting in Achouffe, you can do a beautiful 8km hike. It is a round trip that can be extended to around 12k.
In the beginning, you have to cross a little river but because it is not deep, this is fairly easy to do: take off your shoes and socks, roll up your pants and just go.
You follow the river constantly while walking in between the trees. At the end, there are some ups and downs but the most part is flat.
An excellent idea for enjoying the outdoors at the Belgian Coast is a visit to The Zwin, a nature Parc with a lot to offer. The Zwin dunes and polders are perfect for walking, cyclists, or horseback riding. Bird spotters are in the right place because of the thousands of birds that land at the Zwin to breed, hibernate or look for food. Especially the stork stand out when you enter Zwin Nature Parc.
It is surprising that a big city like Brussels still has a lot of green. The Sonian Forest is a forest in Brussels and part of the scattered remains of the ancient Charcoal Forest. It is the perfect place to walk around on a sunny day, riding a bike, or just put down a blanket and have a picnic. Because it is so big, you definitely have to come back multiple times to explore everything.
Every year during the Christmas holidays, we go to the Belgian coast for a nice walk although most of the time it is pretty cold. This was also the case this time but still we had a nice walk and made some nice photographs. Afterwards we had some good food and drinks at Poseidon.
