1. MultiState, Biking the Continental Divide Trail

2. Wyoming, Kayaking Lake Yellowstone
The Thorofare region of Yellowstone is the most remote and spectacular feature of America's first national park. It's here that the Yellowstone River feeds into Yellowstone Lake through a reedy delta of interwoven canals. Here it forms an American version of Africa's Okavango Delta. Lake Yellowstone is notorious for changeable weather that can swamp a sea kayaker in frigid waters, so stick close to shore. This half day kayaking adventure ranks 2nd in "Top 10 American Adventures" as the endless shores of Yellowstone Lake, the continent's largest mountain lake, have steamed and simmered in a geothermal flux for thousands of years. Geysers gush at water's edge, mud pots bubble and hot springs sear, and all are easy to spot from the unique perspective of a sturdy, stable sea kayak. It's a rarely-shared view of the volcanic forces that helped forge the American Rockies.

4. Washington, Climbing Mt.Rainier
It’s not the size of the dog but the bite that counts. Mt. Rainier is the 22nd highest peak in the country. Difficulty in climbing the mountain makes it one of the premier mountains for daring climbers. To experience less crowding and more excitement, try the Kautz Glacier route. The key difference between Kautz and the standard paths is that climbers actually climb. The route's crux, a steep chute sidestepping an ice cliff, demands that mountaineers belay and front-point their way upward for two pitches. It's exhilarating and nerve-racking. Climbing Mt.Rainier takes 4th place in "Top 10 American Adventures".
