National Parks

I have a National Parks Pass!! Remember the line in It's a Wonderful Life, when George Bailey says, "I've been nominated for membership in the National Geographic Society"? It is like that - being involved in something BIG.  I am a card-carrying member and part owner of all the National Parks and therefore I must visit them and see how they are doing.  
We try to visit State Parks, too, and hit the trail as often as we can and experience the wonder that is out there.  As the Ranger said when we bought our pass, "Go see stuff!" God helping us, as we ramble along, we will!


Joshua Tree - with no trees in the frame 
and the extras... Pacific Crest Trail

Mount Hood - not as glamorous at the top

The Welcome Center at Olympic Peninsula - NOT a through road, although, MANY maps, including our GPS, claim that it is.

The Lighthouse at Cape Hatteras, NC, 
Cuyahoga National Park in Ohio

Here is a listing of National Parks by state.
