  • Greetings from Grand Teton National Park

    When I came across this sight I couldn't help but yelling. "Shane, come back Shane".

  • Greetings from Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument

    I first read about the battle of the Little Bighorn when I was 10 years old in 1968, since then I started to study the battle & the entire Indian War era but was never able to visit the battlefield. In 2016 my wife surprised me with a trip to…

  • Greetings from Channel Islands National Park

    When we moved to an active retirement community in July 2017, little did I know that it would lead to a revised bucket list. Our new community has more clubs and activities then time allows. When a friend invited us to join the Hiking Club for a weekend train trip…

  • Greetings from Mount Rainier National Park

    This summer, I visited Sunrise to see the sunrise with my family. We crawled out of bed at 2 AM and prepared for the long drive ahead of us. At 5 AM, we finally arrived. The sun wasn’t up yet, and none of us were fully awake, but despite how…

There are many people who have no interest in actually visiting or unable to do so, but…

  • Greetings from Grand Canyon National Park

    I have visited numerous national parks in my lifetime; however, one week-long visit and trek will forever be remembered: My University of Colorado Geology class field trip in the summer of 1993. On the way to the Grand Canyon, our class stopped and camped one night at Petrified Forest National…

  • Greetings from Olympic National Park

    I spent a day hiking in Olympic National Park with my family this summer. We were greeted by snow-capped mountains and miles of evergreens, both of which were familiar characteristics of Washington State. Throughout the year, the mountains are always dotted with wildflowers frequented by fat bees and skittish butterflies.…
