Landing in 4k

Landing in 4k

Ever wanted to see what it’s like the cockpit of a big plane when landing at night? High Pressure Aviation has a ton of really amazing cockpit videos.

How about an A380 in 4k?

Or how about one of the newer Boeing 777

Glass bottom night canoeing

Glass bottom night canoeing

It’s no secret that Eastern Oregon is a fantastic, barren landscape full of plains, deserts, mountain ranges – and most of all – solitude. The Wallowas Mountain area is located in the far NE corner of the state and is a wonderful area to get away and enjoy the outdoors far from big city tourist.

JO Paddle (which stands for Joseph, Oregon), a family-run paddling outfitter that launched in fall 2018, offers a guided two-hour Wallowa Lake Monster Expedition that takes visitors out under the cloak of darkness, with just the lights of the glass-bottom kayak to illuminate the way.

Mysterious Lodging in Kyoto

Mysterious Lodging in Kyoto

Mysterious Lodging is a recent guest house that opened in Kyoto. The building houses 11 themed rooms each costing 7,500 yen (US$70) per night, each large enough to fit up to two people.

On the wall of the Horror Room is a dial that adjusts the level of uncanny occurrences produced, starting from the “off” position where nothing happens and all the way to “3” where even the bravest of souls would think twice about staying. The real fun begins after 7 p.m., however, as that is when maximum-level scariness begins

Room of Plenty has the walls completely covered with numerous buttons and switches. Hitting the switches produces different sounds, allowing customers to experiment and combine different elements to enjoy a delightful auditory playground.

The Room of Scenery projects more than 20 surreal videos onto its windows.

Eternal Flame Falls

Eternal Flame Falls

About 30 miles south of Niagara Falls, just below the Canadian border in northwestern New York, inside Shale Creek Preserve about a half-hour drive south of Buffalo, lies a hiking trail with an unusual payoff, if you can find it: Eternal Flame Falls, a waterfall tucked away in a grotto that contains a natural “torch” about 8 inches high.

The ground at the base of Eternal Flame Falls emits a steady supply of natural gas, which rises from deep below the surface up through fault lines and into the open air. This, in turn, is what lights the flame, found on the waterfall’s right-hand side about 5 feet up from the creek bed.

The flame is visible year-round, but the waterfall can run dry in the summer and often is only fully flowing in the spring. If you go right after there’s been some decent rainfall, you’ll get to enjoy the waterfall’s full effect.

The flame stays lit on its own, but bring a lighter just in case — occasionally it goes out, in which case it’s your duty as a good citizen to relight it. It ignites quickly, with a distinct “pop,” so maybe try one of those extra-long candle lighters if you’re nervous.
