National Parks Journey

It was as a travel social worker that I discovered our National Parks System.  During National Parks Week in 2016, I visited Yosemite on my days off.  I fell in love.  Here, I'll share some photos from my National Parks journey.

Yosemite, California - 4/19/16 - 4/20/16

Pinnacles, California - 4/26/16

Petrified Forest, Arizona - 5/8/16

Everglades, Florida - 6/21/16

Biscayne, Florida - 6/22/16
Sadly, and I have since learned my lesson - I never backed up my photos from Biscayne, which only means I have to go back!!!

Congaree, South Carolina - 7/10/16

Haleakalā, Hawai'i - 9/6/16 (I was fortunate to live at this base of this dormant volcano for a year!)

Hawai'i Volcanoes, Hawai'i - 4/3/17

North Cascades, Washington - 9/30/17

Mt. Rainier, Washington - 11/18/17

Olympic, Washington - 1/6/18 - 1/7/18
