Magical Whatcom Trail
USA
Bellingham has some great urban parks, and Whatcom Falls Park may be its finest. A veritable 241-acre jewel, the waterfalls eternally beat in the heart of the city. From the central parking area, the roar of the water attracts visitors to a paved path leading to a sandstone bridge that spans Whatcom Creek. From there, the main waterfall may be appreciated. The bridge is impressive: a beautiful vestige of Chuckanut sandstone built in 1939 as a project of the Roosevelt-sponsored Works Progress Administration. Areas of the park near the creek are wooded with indigenous trees and shrubs. Past the bridge, the park’s trails become dirt and gravel paths that lead to other sections of the creek. Leashes are not required for dogs in this section of the park. Aquatic adventurers are familiar with a section of the park known as "The Whirlpool," where daring swimmers leap from a 60-foot cliff, plunging into the cold waters below. However, this is not a supervised swimming area, so jump at your own risk.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
