The Best Parts of America

By Jody

After having my first child I began looking for places to take him to expose him to nature. After hiking locally (in New England) he wanted to see more. We wanted to find unique and beautiful places. Of course, this led me to our nation's incredible National Parks Service. We have travelled out West many times and have hiked through incredible canyons, under arches, around waterfalls, into caves, and through the deserts. We have seen tarantulas, road runners, and bison. We have touched the Rio Grande, the Colorado, and the Virgin Rivers. I cannot imagine better experiences to build into his childhood and hope that these adventures will follow him into his adulthood. It is my intent to have him appreciate and value the great outdoors so that he respects it and works to preserve it for future generations. Thank you NPS!
