We all know I’m obsessed with lists. But present circumstances have made my travel to-do list a little depressing; it’s not getting any shorter, and my 2020 list of accomplishments is not getting any longer.
But then I stumbled across a handful of A-Z travel lists here on WordPress and decided to jump on the bandwagon… with a twist. There are a couple letters missing and a couple duplicates because I couldn’t narrow it down, but I’d say I was mostly successful with my alphabet accomplishments.
I present to you: Diana’s A-Z of handstands!
A: Arenal Volcano National Park (Costa Rica)
B: Beartooth Plateau (Montana/Wyoming)
C: Calgary Tower (Alberta, Canada)
D: Delicate Arch (Arches National Park, Utah)
Dead Horse Point State Park (Utah)
E: Europe (Rhine River Valley, Germany)
F: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (Colorado)
G: Glacier National Park (Montana)
Great Sand Dunes National Park (Colorado)
H: Hyalite Peak (Montana)
I: Indian Peaks Wilderness (Colorado)
J: Jefferson County (Colorado)
Did I have to get a little creative to come up with a J? Yes, yes I did.
K: Köln (Germany)
L: Loch Vale (Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado)
Lake George (New York)
M: Mount Washington (New Hampshire)
Not the best handstand in the world or the prettiest location, but this was one of the hardest hikes of my life and I’m proud of us for making it to the summit!
N: Nova Scotia
O: Ocean (Hunting Island State Park, South Carolina)
P: Panorama Point (Mount Rainier National Park, Washington)
Prince Edward Island
I’m kicking myself so hard for this one. I’ve been to Quebec and I’ve climbed Quandary Peak… and I didn’t do a handstand at either place.
R: Royal Gorge Railroad (Colorado)
S: Stormhaven (Bruce Peninsula National Park, Ontario)
T: Telluride (Colorado)
U: Utah (Cedar Breaks National Monument)
W: Waterton Lakes National Park (Alberta)
X: Four Corners
It’s an X on the ground… that counts, right? I’ve never been anywhere that starts with X, so it’s the best I can do
Y: Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming)
All the times I’ve been to Yellowstone, you’d think I’d have a better handstand picture. Sadly I do not.
Z: Zion National Park (Utah)
