The Hiker's Life List: 101 Places to Go, Skills to Learn & Things to Do Before You Die | December, 2014

#92: See the Ocean on Fire "Liquid Lightning" - that's how Backpacker Magazine's Editor in Chief, Dennis Lewon, describes his moonless night of kayaking off of Baja's Isla Carmen in the Sea of Cortez. Fortunate to have been there when bioluminescent plankton were lighting up the warm waters, Lewon lists the many reasons that "sea kayaking belongs on anyone's life list - rugged islands, soft beaches, whales, turquoise water - but going during a peak bioluminescent plankton bloom elevates the experience to the top of the list."
