The Verdon Gorge , in south-eastern France (Alpes-de-Haute-Provence), is a beautiful European river canyon. It is about 25 kilometres long and up to 700 metres deep, formed by the Verdon River, named after its turquoise-green colori. The most impressive part lies between the towns of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Because of its proximity to the French Riviera, the canyon is very popular with tourists, who can drive around its rim, rent kayaks or hike.
The new 631-mile Alabama Scenic River Trail, the longest water trail in a single state. Along the route are hundreds of places to put in a boat or take one out, dozens of campsites for taking a break (the plan is that eventually there will be one every 10 miles) and a variety of sights and experiences, natural, cultural and historical.
The Umpqua Hot Springs Trail is a short 0.3 mile hike to the springs. A "tub" is hewn out of the travertine deposits surrounding the springs. The springs, at a temperature of 108 degrees, is located on a bare rock face 150 feet above the North Umpqua River. From the tub, there is a view of Surprise Falls across the river.
