My own family has always been involved with the outdoors whether in Northern Wisconsin or the woods of Illinois. However my niece & her husband spent several summer vacations in our beautiful national parks after their 2 children were grown and on their own. My niece truly "fell in love" with the parks. SInce their children were grown it was now time to refurnish their living and dining rooms and Ann wanted the colors of the beautiful national parks!! They chose a very dark brown carpet, painted the walls a pale blue like the skies over the mountains, green & brown accent pillows on gorgeous comfortable brown leather chairs. Around the fireplace they laid light brown tile & then added some large green plants. When she has guests, Ann welcomes them to the ROller National Park and then gives you her famous giggle. I know that they would appreciate a contribution to our national parks.
