The National Parks: Our great treasures… don’t miss out!

This past week, while attending my husband Gerry’s Air Force reunion in Fresno, CA, we took day trips to revisit both Yosemite and Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. All I can say is, “Breathtaking and awe-inspiring!”


Giant Sequoias


Wish I hadn’t let so much time pass, but I am now on a mission to visit all of our National Parks, at least the major ones that we’ve never seen. We purchased the $10 senior citizens’ Lifetime Pass, a ticket to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites.

I hope my photos will inspire you to “See the USA in your Chevrolet!” Don’t forget to write… I would love to see your photos and hear your suggestions of places to visit in our magnificent country.
