Nicaragua is such an interesting and lovely country with so much political history during the Cold War, Iran-Contra and internal struggles to find growth and opportunity for its citizens.
Lago Nicaragua with Ometepe Island and two volcanoes, one active and one not is a destination that provides adventure, wonderful people and beautiful farms, untrammeled beaches and fresh water.
Grand Targhee fest was a wonderful weekend of hikes, bike rides and music. the view on the north ridge hike to the summit is lovely and a chairlift down completes the circuit. Music and wildflowers complete the symphony of the senses at Grand Targhee which is one hour from Jackson Hole and an awesome ski area!
