  • Greetings from Wright Brothers National Memorial

    My son, Jos, had just graduated from St. John's College in Annaolis, MD. We were driving back to Kansas and detoured to North Carolina and the Outer Banks. My mother, Louise Foudray, was the curator of the Amelia Earhart Home in Atchison, KS for over 25 years (retired from there…

  • Greetings from Mount Rushmore National Memorial

    My now husband and I were on a National Park road trip in 2016 (Badlands, Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Yellowstone, Grand Teton). We had a long day exploring South Dakota and got to Mount Rushmore at sunset. While hiking around the base of the monument, he asked me if I wanted…

  • Greetings from Grand Canyon National Park

    I can still remember the awe I felt the first time I visited this park. Nothing could have prepared me for the sheer magnificence of the Grand Canyon. I vowed one day to venture down into the canyon. It was on my third visit that we hiked the South Kaibab…

  • 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 Canyonlands National Park

    This is my partner Keith and I in Spring 2009. We based in Moab for a week and had an amazing trip

  • 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 Glacier National Park

    Pristine glacial lakes, a boat dock, and an old cedar forest. This is Glacier National Park, a place that I’ve never set my foot on due to the pandemic. I took an online course from Glacier Institute and learned about how the landscape of the park came to be. I…
