Zywieckie Lake, Tresna, Poland
  Map

Żywiec Lake is a reservoir on the Soła river in southern Poland, near the town of Żywiec. It was created in 1966, when several villages in the area, such as Zarzecze, Tresna, Zadziel and Old Żywiec were flooded following the construction of a dam.

The lake has the area of around 10 square kilometres, and the earth-filled dam is 39 metres high and 310 metres long. The maximum depth of the lake is 26.8 metres, and the average depth is 8.6 metres.

Near the dam there is a hydro-electric power plant with the capacity of 21 megawatts. Żywiec Lake is used mostly for tourist purposes, to regulate the flow of water, and to protect the area from flooding.

Mount Fuji, Honshū, Japan
  Map

Mount Fuji (富士山, Fujisan) is with 3776 meters Japan's highest mountain. It is not surprising that the nearly perfectly shaped volcano has been worshiped as a sacred mountain and experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries.

Mount Fuji is an active volcano, which most recently erupted in 1707. It stands on the border between Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures and can be seen from Tokyo and Yokohama on clear days.

Another easy way to view Mount Fuji is from the train on a trip between Tokyo and Osaka. If you take the shinkansen from Tokyo in direction of Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka, the best view of the mountain can be enjoyed from around Shin-Fuji Station on the right hand side of the train, about 40-45 minutes into the journey.

Note however, that clouds and poor visibility often block the view of Mount Fuji, and you have to consider yourself lucky if you get a clear view of the mountain. Visibility tends to be better during the colder seasons of the year than in summer, and in the early morning and late evening hours than during the middle of the day.

If you want to enjoy Mount Fuji at a more leisurely pace and from a nice natural surrounding, you should head to the Fuji Five Lake (Fujigoko) region at the northern foot of the mountain, or to Hakone, a nearby hot spring resort. Mount Fuji is officially open for climbing during July and August via several routes.

Santiago Peak, Orange County, California
  Map

This is a live view from Santiago Peak from the KWVE-FM broadcast tower.

From the summit of Santiago Peak, one can see the larger Southern California peaks like San Gorgonio Mountain, San Jacinto Peak, and Mount San Antonio. However, due to the large number of antennas at the top of Santiago Peak, a full 360-degree view of the surrounding landscapes is not possible. Those at the top must walk approximately a quarter-mile around the perimeter of all the antennas to take in views of every direction.

More than one trail leads to the top of Santiago Peak, but the most popular among hikers is the Holy Jim trail. The Holy Jim trail gains about 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in elevation and is a 16-mile (26 km) round trip. It is a moderate to strenuous hike and is most enjoyable during spring and winter due to the large number of insects during warmer times of the year.

Grand Tetons, Teton Valley, Wyoming, USA
  Map

View of the Grand Tetons in Grand Teton National Park.

These magnificent mountains tower over a valley bisected by the Snake River. This beautiful valley, overlooked on the western edge by an impressive skyline, is known as Jackson Hole. The Teton Range dominates the landscape of the park.

The range began rising about 10 million years ago. Numerous earthquakes, up to a magnitude 7.5, released tension along the Teton fault building the mountains one step at a time. Each large earthquake breaks the ground by about ten feet dropping the valley floor three to four times as much as the mountains rise. The Grand Teton at 13,770 feet, towers about 7,000 feet above the valley floor suggesting the offset across the fault is up to 30,000 feet. The lack of foothills is due to the presence of the Teton fault.

Erosion fills the valley and carves the range crest forming the jagged Teton skyline. The rugged terrain and lack of foothills allures outdoor enthusiasts of all types to visit this area. Climbers summit at least 12 peaks in the Teton Range over 12,000 feet high with varying degrees of difficulty.

Star Valley was settled in the late 1870s by Mormon pioneers. Primary sources indicate Star Valley was proclaimed the "Star of All Valleys" for its natural beauty by a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The name was later shortened to Star Valley.

Lake Jasna, Slovenia
  Map

Located just 2 km from Kranjska Gora, Lake Jasna is a stunning alpine lake covering a surface area of 2.2 ha. A popular tourist destination, the views from here towards to surrounding mountains are nothing short of breathtaking. The lake is guarded by a statue of a Zlatorog (golden horn), the legendary chamois of Mt. Triglav.

In 2015, Lake Jasna underwent a facelift that has slightly transformed its overall appearance and tremendously boosted its popularity, with the addition of new visistor friendly features, that have received an informal approval by tourists and locals alike, in the form of increased visitor numbers. 

The new features are new beach areas and better access for swimmers / sunbathers, newly opened bar / ice cream parlour and finally a new three-tiered wooden diving platform, resembling a castle turret. 

Lake Jasna now offers not just a place for a walk to admire the views but somewhere lovely to while away whole Summer days on the beach, swimming and sunbathing - adding an important new dimension to Kranjska Gora’s Summer offering for tourists.
