7 mindblowing views in Mammoth Lakes

Image
7 mindblowing views in Mammoth Lakes Imagine a landscape that combines Yellowstone and Yosemite, but without the eight million visitors per year — that’s Mammoth Lakes, CA. A town built for the great outdoors, it sits at a towering 7,880 feet above sea level, hugged on all sides by the stunning peaks of California’s Eastern Sierra. A skier’s paradise in winter, Mammoth Lakes transforms into a volcanic wonderland of waterfalls, hiking trails, and paddling sessions come summer. Believe it or not, this is the off-season.
Thrill-seekers can race down last season’s ski trails on mountain bikes or climb crevice-lined rocks that reach dozens of stories into the sky. Families can kayak, fly fish, or wander an endless series of trails to discover unearthly marvels: volcanic craters, geothermal springs, and alkaline lakes speckled with lunar-looking columns of limestone. In and around Mammoth Lakes, there’s a postcard landscape around pretty much every turn — but these seven will really blow y…

6 Big Travel Takeaways From Skift Tech Forum

6 Big Travel Takeaways From Skift Tech Forum Roger McNamee (left) of Elevation Partners spoke at Skift Tech Forum June 27, 2019 about the authoritarian nature of how Facebook and Google are using Big Data. At right is Skift founder and CEO Rafat Ali. Skift

Skift Take: The travel industry is obsessed with Big Data and artificial intelligence. The genie is out of the bottle. But the best way to use it will trigger an intense debate and much soul-searching. — Dennis Schaal Read the Complete Story On Skift https://travel.atspace.co.uk/6-big-travel-takeaways-from-skift-tech-forum/

Influencers are ruining landmarks

Influencers are ruining landmarks The old people under the sun shelter were not feeling @bodybyjulezzz*.
“The hell she doin’ over there?” a clearly overheated older man in a purple hat asked his wife. “Filming a commercial?”
“She’s an influencer,” I told him, unrequested, while I stood behind him and watched.
“A what?” he said turning around.
“An influencer. She’s filming that for Facebook Live and putting it on her feed,” I told him.
“Ohhhhh,” he said, pretending to have any idea what I was talking about. “Why’s she gotta do it here?”
@bodybyjulezzz had conveniently set up shop right between the sun shelter and Rainbow Bridge, an iconic red rock bridge near Lake Powell on the ArizonaUtah border. Ideally, the sun shelter provided a place for overheated hikers to get a break from the desert sun and enjoy this wonder of nature. Today, it was a place to watch a fitness “model” in a sports bra hock packaged salads in front of an iPad.

Best things to do in Moorea, Tahiti

Image
Best things to do in Moorea, Tahiti Mention Tahiti and visions of turquoise lagoons and regal palm trees probably come to mind. But Tahiti is in fact just one of 118 islands and atolls that together make up the area known as French Polynesia or The Islands of Tahiti. Bora Bora, famed for its luxury overwater bungalows, is the most photographed isle of the bunch, but a far lesser-visited island may be an even better place to spend your time in French Polynesia: Moorea. Moorea offers up its own beautifully hued waters and impossibly white sand, all backed by stunning mountain peaks. Although one day is never enough, but you can get a good taste. Here’s how to spend it.

Moorea is possibly the easiest island to get to from Fa’a’ā International Airport, which is located on the main island of Tahiti and where all international flights arrive. You could add Moorea onto your Tahiti itinerary at either end of your trip. Five airlines fly to Tahiti fr…
