Creek running through a snowy Lamar Valley surrounded by mountains in Yellowstone National Park

Are you looking for an incredible wintertime trip that includes active travel? Check out Alan and Donna’s incredible trip to Yellowstone National Park’s Lamar Valley.

From Donna:

As we head into the holiday gift giving season, Nicole and I will be sharing our gift guides with you. Have you seen the 2019 edition of 20 under $20 travel gifts for boomers?

Of course we don’t share previous gift guides until they are updated, including making sure that prices are correct, the items are still available and, most importantly, that Nicole and I still approve of the products enough to buy them ourselves.

Thanks, in advance, for shopping with us. And with the Amazon wish lists I’ve created, shop for all types of travelers—hikers, roadtrippers, cruisers—all in one place so that you can finish your holiday chores and get back to traveling. Easy-peasy.

And if shopping isn’t your thing, hold on. By mid-December, the push will be over. In the meantime, we’ll still be publishing travel destination inspiration and tips for you.

From Nicole:

I don’t know about you, but the start of November already has my feet itching for a winter wonderland-type vacation. For one, I really can’t stop looking at that photo of Lamar Valley. That’s what I want, but could be hard to find that type of landscape in Spain. I might have to head out to the north for some snow-covered mountains this winter, but even though the northern part of Spain gets snow almost every year, it’s hard to get to from Madrid.
