Vacation National Park Trips

Glacier National Park

This is my 200th post, y'all! Who knew our little park hunt would turn into an ongoing blog?

One of the things we love to do as a family is visit National Parks. We did a huge one this past summer (2019) to Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Park. We have also visited Zion, Bryce and the North Rim Grand Canyon (2015), Yosemite (2016) and Sequoia/Kings Canyon (every year).

There two things worth mentioning. When you have a 4th grade child, you can print out a free national parks pass to exchange at a park for the actual pass (good September through August, but it is the honor system). Do print it out ahead of time. It is worth the $80 pass price currently. For you Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, there is a special patch you can earn, logging about 10 hours in parks. Any Jr Ranger booklets, talks and guided hikes counted for us.

During the school year, I plan to post about these trips as much as I documented and can remember. I hope it helps someone plan their next adventure!
