National Parks Centennial

Exploring the National Parks seems to be in my blood. It all started with family road trips when I was a kid and continues to today. There’s something magical about the parks. So, on 100th birthday I wanted to share images from my recent park adventures…I hope they inspire you to visit and support your local park!

I love the parks so much. Not only do they provide wide open places for us to explore and enjoy but they guarantee protected space for wildlife to thrive. Plus, they announced yesterday that there will be a new National Monument in Maine’s Great North Woods. I’m so excited to explore there soon! Who’s in?
