WALKING IN WALES. Known as a walker's paradise, Wales has added even more established walking paths. Thanks to the Countryside and Rights of Way Act, there's four times more open country and common land available to walkers. You can now, for example, walk the full length of Brecon Beacons National Park, according to a press release. The 100-mile route goes from Abergavenny, through Crickhowell to the village of Bethlehem. Two new coastal paths are now open, as well: North Wales' Llyn Peninsula and West Wales' Ceredigion Coastal Path (a k a the Dolphin coast). You'll find details in the new 52-page Walking Wales brochure, available by calling 1-877-872-1133. Information is also available on the Web at www.walking.visitwales.com.
WALRUS WATCHING ON THE WEB. The Alaska Sealife Center is sharing its streaming video feed from Round Island in the Walrus Island State Game Sanctuary via a Web cam. You can view Pacific walrus from the Bering Sea in their natural habitat. The video supports the center's efforts to promote education and conservation programs, according to a press release.

FALL FOR VERMONT. Autumn is perhaps the state's most beautiful season. Assuming Mother Nature will cooperate, there should be no shortage of colors from mid-September into late October.
