My Wish List-Other Destinations

This is my wish list of the top non-summit/canyoneering/long hike destinations I hope to see within my lifetime. I listed only the ones which I feel are realistic goals for me. All these are hopefully in reach and I hope to get as many as I can, though my family (wife + kids) are my #1 responsibility and their needs come first. Destinations were selected for various reasons. Some are on the list simply because they are beautiful, some are on the list because they would be a exciting for me, some are on the list because they are easy enough that I can go to with my wife and kids, some are on the list for their history, some are on the list just for the heck of it. Some are well known and some are very little known, so there are a variety of places that I want to visit. Some of these locations do have summits and canyoneering, but these are specific locations that can be reached by other means or for other reasons. Note: This list only includes the wish list since this page was created. Previously, I have already seen many destinations which were on old wish list, thus there is an absence of places listed in my favorite areas (since I've already completed them). The list was created on November 4 2012, and expanded a few times since then, so only mountains that I still haven't/hadn't completed to those dates are on the list below. When I see each of the places on this list, it will be noted with a date.
