The Labor Day Bridge Walk is the most anticipated walk of the year, as you can only walk the Mackinac Bridge on that one day of the year (2020 excluded, of course). It’s not just a walk; it’s an event! Buses transport you across the bridge, then you walk back. After crossing, you get a numbered certificate, then go explore the town. Many businesses post a number in their window, and if it happens to match the number on your certificate, you win a prize! Scott and I walked it in 1994, but I took some liberties with the local destinations (some, like the Indian Museum and the Woolen Mill, were no longer operating by that date). I loved everything about Mackinaw City, particularly as a child when my sister and I were allowed to roam the streets unsupervised. I loved shopping for (and wore out many) moccasins, belts, and those fabulous “mystery bags”! Once, I even secretly purchased the jackknife I had been coveting...then sliced my finger, all of which went unnoticed. The whole town was a playground!
This summer I worked at Yellowstone National Park and the geyser basin was my literal backyard. With predicted and spontaneous eruptions, there was always something new to see while walking among the thermal features.
It was my dream to make a map of Verona. I had never drawn a map and I decided to challenge myself. I loved the whole process. Here we go - my 25 min walking map for the historical center of Verona. It's impossible to show every beautiful place and building, but I choose places that I love to see every time I pass by.

OK, so my dogs are getting older and cannot walk distances like they used to do. Fortunately, we don’t have to travel far to have a varied and interesting walk, because 1) we have a cross-country skiing/hiking trail located right behind our house, and 2) their Grammy lives just a couple houses away from us. No exaggeration, everything depicted - and more - lives here (the bear even visited Mom’s deck)!
I am Colombian, but my German husband has shown me how beautiful his country is. The Alps in the Allgäu are full of beautiful landscapes, animals and incredible routes. German cheese and beer production area. Walking there is a pleasure.
The map shows the central part of Hemus Mountain over The Rose Valley - Valley of Ancient thracian heroes. Shows Historical monuments as megaliths, fortress, mounds and sacred places, mineral baths near, rivers, villages, forests and roads there, and rock clmbing objects.
Monterey is a small coastal town with a perfectly preserved rich history, and a bustling tourist center abundant with diversity. There are gorgeous views, friendly people and tons of delicious food to try! Walking in Monterey is very enjoyable, as you can feel salty and misty breeze on your face and enjoy a comfortable weather almost at any time of the year.
These are some of my favorite sculptures in downtown NYC. This walk takes you through so many unique neighborhoods…from the townhouses of Greenwich Village to the cast iron lofts of SOHO to the skyscrapers near Wall Street. There is so much to see! I love this town.
