Getting kids out there…

Some of the best memories of my childhood were when my folks would take the family to a different national park each summer. During the summer between 2nd and 3rd grade my parents took us through Utah up to Yellowstone. Along the way we stopped at Zion and Bryce national parks. It was there where I first fell in love with the desert. The stark beauty, the wildlife, and the ghosts of those who passed through on their journey West so long ago, impacted me even at that young age. Had my parents not taken us out into the wilderness I would not have the appreciation and passion for nature and travel that I hold so close to my heart. If you have a child in your life…get out into the wilderness and open the world for them. rachel(My good friends 6 year old Niece…great to see her explore at such a young age).
