National Parks

April 16, 2010

The journaling reads:
In 2003, Jake and I took two months to drive across the United States. It was one of my biggest dreams to do this trip. We went to forty states. Instead of doing all the big cities, we decided it would be more pleasant to visit each of the National Parks so we mapped our trip accordingly. Especially since we planned to camp a lot.

It was more beautiful than I could have imagines it. We visited the White Sands, the Painted Desert, the Great Sand Dunes, the Everglades, Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, Zion, Bryce among many others. We saw canyons and caverns, sand and lava, swamps and mountains. The beauty of this country is vast and varied. And it’s breathtaking.

What’s even more amazing is that you can buy something called a National Parks pass which, for a small fee, will get you into any of the parks for free, for a whole year. It was the best purchase we made the whole summer. I am so thankful we live in a country that preserves nature.
