The Armchair Explorer: No Temple Made With Hands Can Compare With Yosemiteopens in new window
By any measure, Yosemite National Park in California’s Sierra Mountains is one of the jewels in the crown of America’s national park system. It’s the fifth most-visited national park; it was designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, and the stunning landmarks of Yosemite Valley – Half Dome, El Capitan, giant sequoias and dramatic waterfalls – are fixed in our minds thanks to the iconic black and white images captured by photographer Ansel Adams.

The Armchair Explorer: We'll Always Have Parisopens in new window
Nearly 80 years ago on a tarmac in Casablanca, Rick Blaine said four immortal words to Ilsa Lund: “We’ll always have Paris.” This week — and perhaps for several weeks to come — you’ll probably stay close to home and practice “social distancing,” a phrase none of us had heard a month ago.
