Hey, it’s been a even though, hasn’t it? I really do not believe I’ve penned a site publish in a yr or so. I hope you’re all doing well in these nuts periods. As always, thanks for reading through.
I have a issue: What is your favorite U.S. Nationwide Park?
In excess of the earlier two a long time, I have fallen in enjoy with them.
Just before the pandemic, I experienced only frequented a handful of them, primarily by incident. But after the pandemic strike, and it was risk-free ample to road-excursion, I drove all all over the region going to them.
Now I’ve observed 15 out of 63. And someday, I’d like to see them all.
1st, there was Redwood National Park, with its towering trees and black-sand beaches…
Then Indiana Dunes, with its sprawling views of nuclear reactors…
Then Utah, dwelling to some of the finest national parks in the state: I visited Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion.
Immediately after Utah, I visited Mammoth Cave (Kentucky) and Warm Springs (Arkansas), on the way to Austin, which is in which I dwell now.
Then there was Significant Bend, Texas. The night sky is remarkable there! You can see so numerous stars.
Followed by Petrified Forest in New Mexico…
And most recently, Glacier (Montana) and Grand Teton (Wyoming). Glacier Nationwide Park reminded me of Switzerland with its alpine valleys, purple wildflowers, and jagged mountains. I even noticed mountain goats.
I sense so fortunate that I have gotten to see so substantially of our beautiful region in the previous couple of several years.

It turns out you really do not have to fly halfway about the globe to go on an experience.
As for my favored? It is a two-way tie in between Redwood and Huge Bend.
