"During a late-summer trip to Banff and Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, the boundaries of
my comfort zone were blown away when I rode in a monster truck on an icefield, got too-close-for-comfort to a grizzly bear, and felt the wind blow through my hair as I peered over towering cliffs from a helicopter seat."

"Grunge is so '80s. For a 21st century take on camping — minus the grunge-and-grunt factor — go glamping, an outdoor adventure that turns camping into a class-act. Forget about leaky tents, soggy sleeping bags and freeze-dried grub. We're talking 1,200 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, five-star cuisine, designer spas and outdoor pros who can show you the ropes — whether you want to bag a peak, cast a line, paddle a river or fly across the sky on a high-altitude zip line."
