Lake Atitlán is a beautiful volcanic lake in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. The lake, 320 metres deep, is 19 km long and 10 km wide, with an area of 127.7 square km. It occupies a valley dammed by volcanic ash. Tz’utujil and Kaqchiquel Mayans have plied its shores for centuries and continue to wear vibrant ropa típica and practice age-old Mayan customs today, particularly in towns such as Santiago Atitlán and Santa Catarina Palopó. Panajachel is one of Atitlán’s main hubs and offers a comprehensive selection of hotels, restaurants, pharmacies, and shops. It also serves as a base for travelers looking to explore the lake’s other villages.

Share/Bookmark

The Baily Lighthouse is a fine lighthouse on the northernmost point of Dublin Bay. The first lighthouse on this site dates from 1667. It was a cottage and square tower with a coal-fired beacon. The lighthouse we see today was built in 1814 and was equipped with fixed white catoptric light comprising 24 Argand oil lamps and reflectors. The granite tower is 13 m high and rises 41 m (134 feet) above sea level. Some of the best views in the whole Dublin area await from the parking lot above the lighthouse, looking out over the entire bay as far south as Dun Laoghaire, Bray, and the north Wicklow coast.

Magnificent Monument Valley of the American West

Magnificent Monument Valley of the American West

Share/Bookmark

Monument Valley is the most famous example of the classic American West landscape, located on the border of Arizona and Utah. Crimson mesas and surreal sandstone towers rise hundreds of feet into the air, some as tall as 1,000 feet. Valley’s rock formations are noteworthy mainly because they resemble animals or other familiar images (e.g., Bear, Rabbit, Stagecoach). Monument Valley is a Navajo Nation Tribal park and charges a fee of $5 per person for access to the loop road through the valley. The area is entirely within the Navajo Indian Reservation near the small Indian town of Goulding, established in 1923 as a trading post.
