Campos do Jordão é um município brasileiro localizado no interior do estado de São Paulo, mais precisamente na Serra da Mantiqueira; faz parte da recém-criada Região Metropolitana do Vale do Paraíba e Litoral Norte, sub-região 2 de Taubaté.

A cidade fica à altitude de 1 628 metros, sendo portanto, o mais alto município brasileiro, considerando a altitude da sede.Distância de 173 km da cidade de São Paulo , 350 km do Rio de Janeiro e 500 km de Belo Horizonte. Sua principal via de acesso é a Rodovia Floriano Rodrigues Pinheiro.

Campos do Jordão é um dos quinze municípios paulistas considerados estâncias climáticas pelo estado, por cumprirem os pré-requisitos definidos por lei estadual. Tal nomeação garante a esses municípios uma verba maior por parte do Estado para a promoção do turismo regional. O município também adquire o direito de agregar junto a seu nome o título de estância climática, termo pelo qual passa a ser designado tanto pelo expediente municipal oficial quanto pelas referências estaduais.

Campos do Jordão é chamada de "Suíça Brasileira", como estratégia de marketing, pela sua arquitetura tardia baseada em construções europeias e pelo seu clima mais frio que a média brasileira. Por isso, a cidade recebe maior quantidade de turistas durante a estação do inverno, especialmente no mês de julho.

É o município com a sede administrativa mais elevada do país, atingindo 1 628 metros acima do nível do mar, onde está localizada a prefeitura da cidade, e que pode variar para mais de 2 000 metros nos arredores do município. Está localizado no maciço da Serra da Mantiqueira, uma das mais elevadas cadeias de montanhas do Brasil. Possui uma área de 289,5 km². É constantemente visitado por turistas de todo o Brasil e até mesmo do exterior, que vão à localidade para gozar do clima de inverno.

Campos do Jordão (Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈkɐ̃pus du ʒoɾˈdɐ̃w]) is a municipality in the state of São Paulo in southeastern Brazil. The population in 2003 was 47,903 inhabitants and the area is 290.27 square kilometres (112.07 sq mi). The city is situated 1,628 metres (5,341 ft) above sea level and is the highest city in Brazil.

The Mantiqueira mountains provide unique panoramic views, and the municipality’s region still has undeveloped old growth Atlantic Forest habitat. The endemic Brazilian Paraná pine (Araucaria angustifolia) is found here. There are numerous outdoor activities for tourists and winter residents. These include hiking, mountain climbing, treetop cable swings (arborismo), horseback riding, and ATV and motorbike riding. July, of winter season vacations, sees an enormous influx of visitors (more than quadrupling the city’s population), due in part to the winter festival of classical music.

Its attractions throughout the year include German and Swiss cuisine restaurants, bars, and a cable car. There are many pousadas (inns) and chalets. Also, in order to cater to the large number of visitors, several bars, lounges, discos and clubs open during the winter months.

A former state governor had a winter residence here, the Boa Vista Palace, which is now a museum in the city.

The city’s economy is based mainly on tourism; due to its location at high elevation in the Mantiqueira mountains, and traditional European-style architecture. Buildings are mostly vernacular architecture from German, Swiss, or Italian models. Many of the wealthiest residents in the state of São Paulo have winter country houses here.

Despite the high income of many visitors, the HDI (0.820 in 2004) of Campos do Jordão is not very high because the owners of the houses in the best neighbourhoods are not regular inhabitants; these houses are used only during the holidays. The city can be reached from São Paulo mainly by road through the Rodovia Floriano Rodrigues Pinheiro. There is also a picturesque railroad from Pindamonhangaba, used mostly by tourists. At the end of the main road going through Campos do Jordão, there is a state park called Horto Florestal.

Shibu Onsen from Shibu Hotel, Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture

Image by David McKelvey
Shibu Hotel is a charming Japanese ryokan situated in the old town of Shibu Onsen, Nagano. Many Japanese who love the good old times of Showa come to stay at our hotel. Nearby attractions include the famous Jigokudani Monkey Park (Wild Snow Monkeys) where bathing monkeys are spotted. Monkeys bathing during the winter are called Snow Monkeys and especially popular among tourists from North America and Europe. The park is closer from Shibu Onsen than from Yudanaka Onsen.

You can walk around in the town, wearing Yukata (light Japanese robe) even at night. We provide free pickup from the nearby Yudanaka station. Just call us on the day you are coming. We will be there. If you are leaving after 3:00 pm, we can drive you to the station. Source: www.shibuhotel.com

Yamanouchi is a municipality in northern Nagano Prefecture with a variety of tourist attractions. The area’s Jigokudani Monkey Park draws many visitors because of its unique wild monkeys, who bathe in the park’s natural hot springs. The monkeys are not the only ones enjoying the water, as the nearby towns of Shibu Onsen and Yudanaka Onsen are centered around the bathing experience.

The largest ski resort in Japan, Shiga Kogen, is also located within Yamanouchi. One single ticket gives skiers and snowboarders access to dozens of runs, some of which hosted events during the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Shiga Kogen and other parts of Yamanouchi are part of the Joshinetsu Kogen National Park, which offers hiking and other outdoor activities when there is no snow on the hills.

Shibu Onsen, Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture

Image by David McKelvey
Shibu Onsen is a historic and attractive hot spring town in Yamanouchi, which has retained a traditional atmosphere. Nestled in a small valley, Shibu Onsen is spread out on a gentle slope beside the Yokoyugawa River, with Yudanaka Onsen located below and the Jigokudani Monkey Park above.

During its long history, the area has been visited for its hot spring water by a lot of people, including priests, samurai and poets. Some of the ryokan (Japanese style inns) that line Shibu’s narrow streets, date back over 400 years, adding greatly to Shibu’s atmosphere. Guests of the ryokan are encouraged to take a stroll around town in the traditional onsen clothing of yukata robes and geta sandals.

One incentive to walk around the town is to make use of the public bath houses, of which there are nine. The public baths are locked and, except for one, only accessible to locals and overnight guests, who are provided with a master key by their ryokan. The bath houses are small buildings, divided into a women’s side and a men’s side, and the baths themselves are quite simple. The bath houses are numbered, but also have special names and cure different ailments. Source: www.japan-guide.com

Japanese Macaque, Jigokudani Monkey Park, Shigakogen, Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture

Image by David McKelvey
Jigokudani Monkey Park (Jigokudani Yaen Kōen) is in Yamanouchi, Shimotakai District, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. It is part of the Joshinetsu Kogen National Park (locally known as Shigakogen), and is located in the valley of the Yokoyu-River, in the northern part of the prefecture. The name Jigokudani, meaning "Hell’s Valley", is due to the steam and boiling water that bubbles out of small crevices in the frozen ground, surrounded by steep cliffs and formidably cold and hostile forests.

The heavy snowfalls (snow covers the ground for 4 months a year), an elevation of 850 metres, and being only accessible via a narrow two kilometre footpath through the forest, keep it uncrowded despite being relatively well-known. It is famous for its large population of wild Japanese Macaques (Macaca fuscata), more commonly referred to as Snow Monkeys, that go to the valley during the winter, foraging elsewhere in the national park during the warmer months.

The monkeys descend from the steep cliffs and forest to sit in the warm waters of the onsen (hotsprings), and return to the security of the forests in the evenings. Source: en.wikipedia.org

South Fork John Day Wild and Scenic River

Image by BLM Oregon & Washington
Downriver view of the South Fork John Day Wild and Scenic River, south of Smoky Creek, June 6, 2017, by Greg Shine, BLM.

Protected as part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, the South Fork of the John Day River flows from south to north through central Oregon, providing unparalleled recreational opportunities including fishing, swimming, hiking, camping, and birdwatching.

It’s your river. Make your splash!

Originating in the Ochoco and Aldrich Mountains, the South Fork meets the main stem of the John Day River at the town of Dayville, Oregon. The river is nationally known for smallmouth bass and steelhead and is an excellent destination for many outdoor activities. The South Fork John Day River Back Country Byway runs alongside the river and also connects visitors to adjacent areas such as the Black Canyon Wilderness.

Forty-seven miles of the South Fork – from the Malheur National Forest boundary to the confluence with Smoky Creek – were designated as wild and scenic on October 28, 1988, and classified as recreational river areas. This classification includes rivers or sections of rivers that are readily accessible by road or railroad, that may have some development along their shoreline and that may have undergone some impoundment or diversion in the past.

As a national wild and scenic river, the South Fork possesses several resource values considered “outstandingly remarkable,” including botanic, fisheries, geologic, paleontologic, recreational, scenic, and wildlife.

Botanic
The South Fork of the John Day River corridor contains a number of relatively pristine plant communities and two significant species, the Washington monkeyflower and threatened south John Day milk vetch. The diversity of plant communities provides important wildlife habitat, interpretive opportunities and aesthetic values to the area. Vegetation has been impacted by humans via fire control, road construction, unmanaged livestock grazing. A coordinated multi-agency program is in place to restore the quality of the vegetative communities.

Fisheries
The John Day River hosts one of the few remaining wild fish runs in the Pacific Northwest. The summer steelhead and spring Chinook salmon returning for spawning contribute to the largest entirely wild run in the mid and upper Columbia River Basin; spawning and rearing takes place below Izee Falls. Resident redband trout populations are augmented with hatchery stock, and whitefish are also present and popular.

Geologic & Paleontologic
A complicated geologic history in the area has resulted in a diverse assemblage of rocks that include masses of oceanic crust, marine sediments, a wide variety of volcanic rocks, ancient river and lake sediments, and recent landslide deposits. North of Izee Falls, the Mascall Formation features marine invertebrates, fossiliferous outcrops and fissure dikes. South of the falls, features include ammonites, bivalves and rhyconellid brachiopods.

Recreational
This river corridor provides a wide variety of recreation opportunities, including camping, boating, hunting and fishing. The river is nationally known for smallmouth bass and steelhead, and popular for floating and swimming, hunting, hiking and camping. Visitors travel here to see the rugged geologic formations of the canyon and internationally significant fossil beds.

Scenic
The views here are colorful, striking and unique. Basalt outcrops, Ponderosa pine and Douglas and white fir intermix with juniper, sagebrush and native bunchgrasses to create a distinct pattern on the rugged canyon slopes. The river is petite but active, and it flows over 55-foot Izee Falls halfway to the mainstem.

Wildlife
The South Fork is a key wildlife area due to the diversity and condition of the habitats in its corridor. Mature (never been cut) Ponderosa pine and fir forests have provided a stable environment for its diverse, balanced population. Grass and sagebrush hillsides provide forage for big game species and nesting for many migratory and resident bird species. Bald eagles visit in winter; golden eagles, redtail hawks and prairie falcons nest in the canyon. Lewis’ and other woodpeckers, owls and quail nest and feed here. Mule deer and elk winter here, as well. Resident predators include mountain lions and bobcats. Minks, beavers, river otters, coyotes and rattlesnakes are common, as well.
