The Jardine Juniper Trail, an 11 mile (roundtrip) hike, leads you to the oldest living tree in Utah, a popular landmark of the Logan Canyon. The age of this Rocky Mountain juniper tree (hence the name of the trail) is estimated at over 1500 and up to 3000 years old, depending on the source.

We didn’t even know if it would be accesible because the last three times we tried it was blocked by snow. But we got there and found three trail options. We followed the White Pine Lake Trail and it was wonderful. One of the most beautiful and peaceful ones I’ve done (until I got hangry, that is).

The Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, One World Trade Center… all of them offer exceptional views of NYC, but only with some major trade-offs.

Plus, you’ll find the same exact views in every tour guide and on about half of all NYC postcards. Visiting New York City is breath taking, make sure you are getting the most out of your trip whether your hotel is within walking distance to Times Square or discovering more unique places off the beaten path.
