You don’t have to go far to get a nature-infused trip in the USA. No matter which time zone you are waking up in, within a short distance there are beautiful rivers, rugged mountains, oceans and glistening lakes waiting for you to explore.
States that offer the the greatest amount of natural excursions are California, Colorado, Arizona, North Carolina and Oregon. While most of these are in the western part of the nation, truly every one of the 50 states offers something unique for the crunchy, tree-hugging yogi. In the summer and autumn months, do some research for studios offering outdoor yoga sessions.
Americans love getting creative with new spaces for their downward-facing dogs. Yoga coupled with white water rafting, hiking the Red Rock Mountains, or floating on a boat are just some of the incredible ideas, to name a few. Between your practices, long hikes, and the inevitable shopping trip in cosmopolitan cities, we have provided you with a few suggestions, if you find yourself in The West.
La Sal Mountains, the Colorado bends, and Moab Valley
If you find yourself in or near Utah, this might be an adventure fit for you. Take in the La Sal Mountains, the Colorado bends and the Moab Valley via zip line. The Raven’s Rim zip line experience with Moab Adventure Center lasts about two hours and 45 minutes. This is a great way to take in the views from a different angle. It is a fun, adrenaline-filled experience. Visitors should wear sturdy shoes as there may be some required hiking.

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park
If you enjoy breathing in nature, Sunset Cliffs will leave you in awe. This stunning location on the coast is filled with salty, fresh air; draped across the sky are paint-like strokes of pastel colors.
