New Orleans is not a National Park, but I do consider it a National Treasure – and a great place to spend a birthday!
Perhaps this is a good place to bring up the importance of photos – and how they help relive memories.
A Sunbeam lights my Sunshine (corny but true) – Antelope Canyon is not a National Park, but was on Meg’s bucket list – I think you’ll see why when you look at the pics.
The day’s next adventure was Painted Desert – includes Petrified Forest National Park – pretty cool – touching wood that has become rock and hills that take on a wide array of colors....
The Journey has provided amazing views and experiences – and when you get to spend time at one of the Seven Natural Wonders – it’s a pretty amazing day – today’s National Park: Grand Canyon
I’m reminded of an old Flintstones episode where Fred and Barney step over a small crack in the ground… well, it grew.
Genealogists make a career capturing a story so that future generations can learn about us. Even though there may be photos that we don't want to be remembered, those are the ones with the best stories to be told! Unfortunately, not every family has a genealogist, but every family wants to share their memories with generations to come.
With “only” 30 days to complete The Journey, we considered not going to Channel Islands National Park to dive the California Kelp Forest – so glad we took the day to do so…
After a restful bed in Burbank (thanks bro), drive to Long Beach, ferry to Avalon/Catalina Island, and in the water at noon, the Garibaldi (the official marine state fish of California) – and more – were waiting for us. In our pre-dive briefing, Mark, our guide from #Catalina.ScubaLuv, mentioned he’d been seeing large black sea bass and a few other cool things – one of the best things of diving – getting to see new things!...
8 of the 58 National Parks are located in California. The Journey will bring us through six. On Monday we visited three: Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia.
Yes, a breakneck pace – and as Meg and I reflect on the last three weeks, we realize it’s almost sensory overload – we have seen SO MUCH – in such a short period of time. Live Life!
I’ve traveled to Seattle for business many times, have hit the tourist spots and even drove up to the Cascades once in winter with a good friend and business associate, but had never ventured over to Olympic National Park – just “never had the time”.
