  • Greetings from Olympic National Park

    There are many National Parks we have visited over the years that I love. If I HAD to narrow it down to a favorite I think it would be Olympic National Park due to the incredible variety of beautiful sights - lavender fields, snow-capped mountain peaks, starfish along the rocky…

  • Greetings from Bryce Canyon National Park

    I've been a national park junkie for more than 30 years. This is the first trip west with my partner Keith (who hadn't been to many NPs) in 2007. We hadn't been dating long and unbeknownst to him, it was somewhat of a "test" for him. I'm happy to report…

  • Greetings from Arches National Park

    My partner Keith and I in Spring 2009. I lived in CO for 10 years and have explored all over the west. I really enjoyed showing him some of my favorite spots.

  • Greetings from Mount Rainier National Park

    Just before school began, my family took a trip up to Washington. Our first stop was the visitor center at Paradise where we checked out the films and some interactive exhibits. After orienting ourself with one of the maps, we set out on our hike where we were quickly blown…

  • Greetings from Olympic National Park

    As a lover of ecology and biological diversity, the rainforest is one of my favorite habitats to explore and to study. My world travels have taken me to many tropical rainforests – in South America, Africa and Southeast Asia. Yet the temperate rainforest closer to my home in the Pacific…

  • Greetings from Theodore Roosevelt National Park

    I lost my fiancé and my mother two weeks apart. Two years later, I drove West for a wedding, to help a friend, and to meet some new friends. I grew up in Illinois. I have always liked the mountains, but the Rockies seemed to swallow me up. I have…
