Release Date: 04-21-2018

Description

Hear about the variety of spectacular Alpine views any visitor can enjoy in and above Switzerland's Lauterbrunnen Valley, as descried by a tour guide who's mapped the region's hiking trails. Then listen in as author Terry Tempest Williams explains how she purchased oil leases near her home in the Utah desert — not to drill, but in hopes of combatting the recent rollback of protections for US national monuments. And learn why travel writer Kiki Deere counts the Philippines among her favorite countries to visit.
