How many of you get to travel?

We are talking of taking a trip out west this year.

We have been in the past & enjoyed it very much.

I was thinking today of all the National Parks we have seen...here is my list:

Acadia-Maine
Badlands-So. Dakota
Bryce Canyon-Utah
Glacier-Montana
Grand Canyon-Arizona
Grand Teton-wyoming
Hot Springs-Arkansas
Redwood-California
Rocky Mountain-Colorado
Sequoia-California
Shenandoah-Virginia
Theodore Roosevelt-No. Dakota
Yellowstone-Wyoming
Yosemite-California

Also have seen the National Memorial, Mount Rushmore in So. Dakota...

All of these places are beautiful.

I think I have been to Acadia in Maine, right Mom?? :D I have only seen from a car or plane the Shenandoah Mountains, Rockies and the mountains by my sister's out in Washington. I don't even remember the name of them! :bang: When are you leaving Mom? :D

Also I saw on http://www.aramarkparks.com/aarp/aarp.htm where you can save $$ with your AARP card. Here is another link http://www.aarp.org/benefits-attractions/Articles/a2002-05-07-nationalparkadventures.html

You can also save 10% on a National Park Pass (for the ones that charge to get in) here http://www.aarp.org/benefits-attractions/Articles/a2002-06-12-nationalparks.html

Yes Deed...you have been to Acadia Park in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Remember when we saw this beautiful building & there was a very long pair of stairs going up to it. You Kids climbed up & on the DOOR it said "We Dress For Dinner"...

Guess what ...we did not dine there!!!! We were camping :toothy:

You [we] also camped in the Shenandoah Mountains.

Do you remember putting out HOT DOGS ...so the Bear would come ??? Sweet Children, I had :yikes: That was after that nice "Ranger" told us all what NOT to do :lalala:
