Hey adventurers! I am still working on my Alaska entry, but in the meantime I am excited to introduce the new “thing” I alluded to a while back! The Sidekick and I have started a brand new Facebook Group: Bark Rangers of the U.S. National Parks. What you’ll want to do is click on that link and hit the join button! We are looking to create an active and thriving group of people who want to share their pictures, adventures, and info on visits to dog friendly parks (not just national parks, but also national forests, and local parks as well) in the US!
Bark Ranger Bella and I recently hit several spots in the Southeast. I will have a specific post for those shortly but for now I am going to just shares some pics!
First we checked out Cloudland Canyon State Park. This is a neat place on Lookout Mountain outside of Chattanooga, TN, but technically in Georgia. It surprised me to find out this was on Lookout Mountain, but it’s a very loooong mountain. Anyway, I got a few awesome pics of my baby bark ranger girl! Fyi, she wears her hat like a pro and has no issues with it!
Stone River National Battlefield. This one is basically in Murfreesboro, TN and protects Civil War battlegrounds.
Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park. This one is on top of Lookout Mountain, overlooking Chattanooga. The specific spot is called Point Park.
Next up was Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Site. This is in Macon, GA and protects native mounds and lands dating back more than 10 THOUSAND YEARS.
Andersonville National Historic Site. This site located in Andersonville, GA, is the site where 35,000 Union Soldiers were imprisoned, and many buried in what is now an active National Cemetery.
The end of our tour was a stop at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains, GA. Bark Ranger Bella was a little tired and both of us were being chased and eaten by bugs…so pictures were not the best of her, BUT I got a cute one of her on a spot that Future President Carter carved his name into concrete at the spot he grew up!
Be sure to go to the new page and join for more info and pictures from people all around the country! See you there!
