Your California Bucket List: A collection of new adventures and experiences in the Golden State for every day of 2017

Canopy Tower, Panama

The scene: Nirvana for birders and jungle junkies in the forest at Soberania National Park. It's a former radar tower, round and 50 feet above ground, with an observation deck up top, pie-slice-shaped rooms below, and striking views of the forest canopy all around. My visit: 2000.
