Hey, it is been a when, hasn’t it? I do not think I’ve published a site put up in a calendar year or so. I hope you’re all carrying out well in these crazy occasions. As normally, many thanks for examining.
I have a query: What is your favored U.S. Nationwide Park?
In excess of the earlier two several years, I have fallen in adore with them.
Ahead of the pandemic, I experienced only frequented a handful of them, largely by incident. But after the pandemic hit, and it was secure ample to street-vacation, I drove all all over the place browsing them.
Now I’ve observed 15 out of 63. And someday, I’d like to see them all.
1st, there was Redwood Nationwide Park, with its towering trees and black-sand beaches…
Then Indiana Dunes, with its sprawling sights of nuclear reactors…
Then Utah, dwelling to some of the greatest countrywide parks in the country: I frequented Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion.
Following Utah, I frequented Mammoth Cave (Kentucky) and Sizzling Springs (Arkansas), on the way to Austin, which is wherever I are living now.
Then there was Huge Bend, Texas. The night time sky is outstanding there! You can see so many stars.
Adopted by Petrified Forest in New Mexico…
And most just lately, Glacier (Montana) and Grand Teton (Wyoming). Glacier National Park reminded me of Switzerland with its alpine valleys, purple wildflowers, and jagged mountains. I even noticed mountain goats.
I truly feel so blessed that I have gotten to see so much of our lovely nation in the previous handful of years.
When I was young, I concentrated entirely on worldwide travel (this website isn’t identified as Ashley Overseas for nothin’). But over the past two a long time, I’m satisfied to report that I have received a newfound appreciation for my individual backyard.
It turns out you really do not have to fly midway around the globe to go on an journey.
As for my favourite? It’s a two-way tie in between Redwood and Significant Bend.
How many countrywide parks have you visited? Do you have a beloved?
