#FindYourPark Photo Challenge for National Park Week 2017

In honor of the National Park Week 2017, my friends over at the Nature Tech Family blog decided to host another #FindYourPark photo challenge. This time around, the photo challenge showcased various aspects of our public lands that we all can enjoy. I only participated on Twitter this time around as my world has been a bit crazy as of late. These photo challenges are one of my favorite things about the #ParkChat community and I encourage you to join us online if you are intested in parks and public lands. Day 1 – “Hiking Up” Throwing it WAY back w/this...

Early Spring Drive in Shenandoah National Park

This past weekend we decided to hike a little farther away from home and selected Shenandoah National Park. The northern entrance to Shenandoah is just over an hour from our house and we visit the park several times a year. We started our drive at the Front Royal entrance and wandered as far as the trailhead for the Lower Hawksbill Trail. Typically, if we are doing a hike in the Central District of the park, we will jump in at the Thornton Gap to save time. However, this trip we wanted to look for wildlife and decompress from a busy few...

National Museum of African American History and Culture: Part 1

My First Visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture Our visit began...

40 Hours in Wisconsin

Last weekend, Hubs and I headed to Wisconsin for a very short weekend trip. Short as in … we didn’t get to our destination until Friday afternoon and left Sunday morning. While it was short, it was also purposeful. Hubs had not been to see my mother since she had her strokes, it was my parent’s wedding anniversary, it was my youngest sisters prom, and my family’s first exchange student (they are on #13) was visiting from Brazil. Crazy, right?! I’m so thankful that Hubs and I could both take a long weekend to make this trip happen. Friday...
