  1. So beautiful. I’m looking forward to driving across the country and seeing some of this in-person, in a few months! Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I love visiting national parks and am lucky to live close to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Your photos are gorgeous. Mt. Rushmore, however, was a monumental disappointment and is my least favorite NP. I’d love to see it decommissioned.

    1. Thank you! I look forward to visiting more of the National Parks later this year. As far as Mt. Rushmore, I understand your sentiments but I am still amazed at the feat it took to carve out the mountainside. It is, however, missing my favorite president – John Adams! Thanks for stopping by!


  3. You are an AMAZING photographer. Each one of these photos makes me stop for a moment and place myself in the wonder if it all. I can only imagine how much more magnificent all of these places are in person. Thank you for this.
