The mountains are calling, you must go
Once a year go someplace you've never been. Nature has a new look every day. Every moment spent there is a new feeling. Cover your senses in sunshine and enjoy the clear air in the mountains. You can never have enough of the fresh air and the beautiful sunrises. Every picture taken in the mountains will without any doubts be good for instagram. Your instagram will be updated and your soul will be renewed.
The valleys are instagrammable too
The Grand Canyon is not the only place worth visiting in the United States. When the fall comes the valleys get a new colour and become magical. The mornings are colder but the afternoons are cosy and warm. The landscapes are picturesque. The clouds hide stories from the paradise. The dazzling views will spoil your senses and make your soul feel things it has never felt. They smell like history and like fairy tales. Below you can check one of the most interesting and the most historical valley and mountain places in the USA.
Windermere - the lake which looks like the sea
While Windermere is the largest body of water in Maine, the fact that it carries an amazing 300 billion litres of water is even more fascinating.
The water in Windermere was trapped by the rock material that the glaciers deposited, and the water drains into the River Leven at the southern end of the lake, which was formed roughly 13,000 years ago during the last Ice Age when two glaciers melted.
The king’s valley
Located in the south east part of Maine the kings’ valley is a perfect reality getaway. Here you will find old trees and good wine.
It is a place with a lot of lakes and forests. Convenient for cycling and hiking. Even though the sea is too far away, a weekend here recharges the batteries and spoils all senses.
Lake Placid - the place where miracle happen
For all the people who want to experience a textbook autumn there is the Adirondack mountains. The fall paints the whole region with colours which can not be found on any palette. Lake Placid is a small village in the Adirondacks where in 1989 a miracle happened.
USA won over the USSR in the last minute of the hockey game. It is a place of nice hot chocolate and warm tea which you can drink nearby the lake while you breathe the fresh air of mountains. The sunsets here are amazing but the sunrises are a must see.
Deserted valleys with historical meaning - Wharam Persey village
Wharram Percy, in the Yorkshire Wolds, has been continuously inhabited for almost 600 years. It flourished between the 12th and early 14th centuries, when members of the noble Percy family lived in the settlement, which was probably formed in the 9th or 10th century. As a result of gradual desertion and forcible evictions, it was almost deserted by the early 16th century. The damaged church is the only remaining medieval structure. The grassed-over foundations of two manor houses, as well as roughly 40 peasant dwellings and their outbuildings, surround it. The settlement has been the subject of intensive research since 1948, earning it the title of Europe's best-known deserted medieval village.
The origins of the village are a point of contention. Some scholars believe that a smattering of small structures with sunken floors – some presumably surrounded by earthworks – marks an early settlement, which may be dated by the presence of objects from the mid-seventh century. Others say that these structures were built as temporary shelters by lowland farmers who transported their sheep to the Wolds to graze in the summer and autumn, and that the presence of an annual livestock market promoted the establishment of a permanent community in the 9th or 10th century.
Parish and field boundaries resulted in the establishment of the village proper, complete with a wooden church on the green. Lagmann and Carli were the two principal pre-Conquest proprietors, according to Domesday Book, with Ketilbjorn holding a smaller piece of land. These individuals, whose surnames suggest they were of Viking descent, may have rebuilt the church in stone. Today it is an interesting place to visit and go on a vacation.
