National Park Count: 28 Somehow. Greetings fellow adventurers! Well, my whirlwind travel habits nearly derailed me this time!

And the winning destination of my Utah trip…..Arches and Canyonlands!
Greetings fellow Adventurers! I dilly dallied and struggled mightily with my destination this weekend. I was thinking Great Basin but it’s still cold! And, part of the big drive there is still closed for the season. Then, I was convinced to do Capitol Reef. But the cost of lodging and everyone saying they wished theyContinue reading “And the winning destination of my Utah trip…..Arches and Canyonlands!”
Mid-Spring Update! Utah Recs?And calling all Bark Rangers!
Hello fellow Adventurers! Happy National Pet’s Day, which just so happens to be the Bark Ranger’s Gotcha Day! I saved my Bella Brown from a kill shelter 11 years ago! She’s still going strong, too!

Guadalupe Mountains National Park, TX. Nov 2021.

Acadia National Park, ME, Sept 2021

Mammoth Cave National Park, KY. Dec. 2019
National Park Counter: 13 *I broke this one out of an early post. At the time it made sense to have this bundled with the Macy’s/NYC Trip, but I really think with how different they are, and especially with my National Parks goal that this one should be separate. As such, the national park counterContinue reading “Mammoth Cave National Park, KY. Dec. 2019”
Zion National Park, UT/Valley of Fire, NV. Feb, 2021.
National Parks Counter: 16 2021 LETS GO! I am going to start this blog off with something surely controversial to National Parks people. Zion is gorgeous, a wonder, and a must see. It is also underwhelming to its reputation and to put on top of a national parks list is silly to me. As ofContinue reading “Zion National Park, UT/Valley of Fire, NV. Feb, 2021.”
