#1 The Hike in Glacier National Park That Everyone Should Do

I never realised that glaciers existed in Montana in USA, thanks to @josiahthomas now I know. The 11 mile long Grinnell Glacier trail starts by Swiftcurrent Lake where there is an option to take a shuttle ride across the lake to save you walking 3 miles. @josiahthomas opted to walk the entire journey which was a good call as walking by the lake in the morning was so calm and serene. The views gets better as he goes along the trail, and passes by Grinnell Glacier Lake where the lake colour ranges from deep turquoise to a bright emerald depending on the sunlight. Finally he gets to the 152 acres big Grinnell Glacier. The best thing about the whole adventure is that for most of the time he and his party were the only people around the glacier. Absolute magical moment I'd say.

#2 Scotland Roundtrip VIII - The Old Man of Stoer [EN/DE]

Hikers who have been to Scotland in UK would have heard of the Old Man of Storr but did you know there is an Old Man of Stoer as well? Confusing right? Let's follow @patschwork on her Scotland roadtrip to check it out. The Old Man is actually a rock formation in the sea, nearby the Stoer Lighthouse at a place called Clashnessie in Scotland..... I wonder if Clashnessie ever came across the famous Nessie monster. Anyway, lets not digress. There's a parking lot nearby the lighthouse, and it seems that you just walk along the cliff to get to the Old Man. In fact, the view along the cliff itself is so stunning, in my opinion, that alone is worth the trip, with or without the Old Man.

#3 Travel Norway #17 - Femundsmarka national park vol.2 - To The Top!

Our last featured post is another mesmerising trek up the mountain by @photovisions, he went to the Elgåhogna mountain in Norway. There were quite a few waterfalls and pretty lakes on the way, great to freshen up himself as it was so hot that day. Then as he ascends up the mountain, he sees some wild reindeer roaming around with their calves. The top of the mountain is quite flat and windy, and you get a brilliant 360 degrees of the surroundings. The whole trek is just so surreal, and its amazing that only him and the other 4 people he sees that day decide to enjoy it. Surely, it deserves more visitors (but not too many!!) than that.

Thank you very much for the invitation and this excellent service you offer. Yeah, too bad. I have already done several post of my bike tours, which would fit here very well. I am now planning to document or rewrite my tours along the cycle routes in my area. I will start this in the next few days. Currently I am collecting information because I would also like to point out certain regional highlights!
