Grand Canyon National Park – The Return

Grand Canyon National Park – The Return

After Craig’s down and up trip last spring, we decided it was time for Jennifer to revisit and experience one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.  It had been over 25 years since she was last there.  The boys were little, and as you can probably guess, there was not much “looking over

Southern Utah Part 5: Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is one of the more remote national parks in southwest Utah and one of the “Big-5”.   It is nestled in the red rocks and canyons of the Paunsaugunt Plateau.  It’s not really a canyon, but a series of “amphitheaters” of eroded sandstone and hoodoos.

Zion National Park has two major sections.  The northern section is built around Kolob Canyon.  It is about 20 miles north of the main entrance of the park.  It is located right off the interstate and very accessible.  Despite its ease of access, it is not heavily visited.  This was a key attraction for us,

After a great week in the rain forests and coastal regions of Olympic National Park, it was time to move north to the mountains.  The Olympic range is home to some of the tallest and roughest mountains in the country and we have wanted to explore them for some time.  We picked an area just

Olympic National Park has been on our bucket list for some time.  It is a big area consuming most all of the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State and is known for its rain forests, mountains and glaciers.  It also has some wonderful coastline and beaches.  We decided to split it up into two distinct areas.
