Our world and my world has not been normal for over a year now. It would be nice to have everything feel normal again. This week, I am looking forward to having President Biden in office. I am hoping and praying for peaceful times in our country. We may not agree on politics, but we can be respectful and kind to everyone. My post this week is on some of my favorite national parks, since we have not traveled due to COVID these images are from my archives.
One of my favorite parks is Yellowstone, the scenery and wildlife is just amazing. The scenic drives in these parks, both Yellowstone and the Tetons in Wyoming are beautiful.
Grand Prismatic, largest hot spring in Yellowstone. It is the third largest hot spring in the world.
Various birds seen in the Yellowstone and Tetons National Parks.
Unidentified Hummingbird, Cinnamon Teal, Magpie,
Trumpeter Swan, Cedar Waxwing, Dusky Grouse,
female Mountain Bluebird, Osprey, White Pelican.
Yellowstone's Canyon... "The best thing about memories is making them."
Glacier National Park in Montana, I am guessing the top left is the Swiftcurrent Lake, we stayed nearby, the Running Eagle Falls or also nicknamed Trick Falls. Lower left the Beargrass looked pretty and bottom right is near Logan Pass Visitor Center.
Going to the Sun, a very scenic drive in Glacier National Park. This park road was a hair-raising drive for me. We saw some Mountain Goats crossing this road, definitely keep your eyes on the road while driving.

Scenic view of the Grand Canyon National Park.
"A good life is a collection of happy memories."
Grand Canyon and Colorado River
Arches National Park, the various rock formations all had names, if only I could remember them all. The top left could be the Balance Rock. I do remember the bottom left are the Three Sisters and the bottom right is the Landscape Arch.
Arches NP, Landscape Arch is the longest stone span. It stretches 306 feet and is only 11 feet thick at it's center.
"Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints."
Arches NP, Balance Rock. "We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone."
"Never let your memories be greater than your dreams."
We are looking forward to the days when we feel safe to travel and take some road trips. My dream is to visit all of our National Parks. Our world is beautiful and our country has some of the greatest National Parks to visit. These are just of few of the National Parks that hubby and I have visited. Some parks we visited twice, my favorites are Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion.
Hubby and I continue to be happy and healthy, I hope everyone is doing well too.
