    I Dream To Visit All National Parks Possible.

    My family and I took our first road trip about 4 years ago to the Grand Canyon. It was a beautiful experience. We stayed in the main campground, which made it even more magical. When we got there we first set up our campground. I could not wait to get my first glimpse of the...

    I Love National Parks!

    National Parks are the most beautiful places on Earth.  They are saved land exactly for that reason!  I've only been to a few: Death Valley, Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon, Redwood, Lassen, but there's so many more I want to go to!

    Good Times

    In my 20's I worked in almost every national park across the west. Plus I've been in the forest service. Why did I ever leave to pursue a 'real' career? Looking back, when I was in either, it was the best times of my life. I wonder if I'm too old to go back.

    National Battlefields

    I am not a militarist, but you cannot not but be moved at many of the Civil War battlefields, realizing what happened there and how many died. I hope we never let those be "privatized."
