Greetings from Glacier National Park

I was 40 years old when I discovered our National Parks. I was between jobs and went to a hiking camp in southwest Utah and fell in love with Zion National Park. I came home and bought my husband hiking boots and we’ve been hiking our way through the God’s gift to America. We’ve been to 20 parks each with it’s own beauty so its hard to pick a favorite. I have also become a National Park VIP (Volunteer In Park) and volunteer as an interpretive docent at Alcatraz.

Sincerely,
Kathy
