National Parks are beautiful!

In the past week we've spent time in 3 National Parks.  We enjoy getting our "Passport" book stamped at each park we visit.  There are 59 National Parks in the US.  So far we have visited 19 since we started this adventure in July, 2011.  We've also visited many of the National Monuments and Preserves and have many of those stamps in our Passport Book.

We stopped to pick some Colorado peaches on the way home.  We ran into locals who said we MUST get some!  They are yummy!

We are now in Glenwood Springs, CO.  A dear friend from PA, Diana Black, came to visit and stayed with us for a few days.  We had a great time, although way too short, checking out the area.

Due to technical difficulties (possible Apple computer virus - ugghh!) I will need to post the pictures from Diana's visit next time.

My cousin, Donna, and her husband, Gary, are coming to camp with us today through Sunday so we're looking forward to this time with them.  2 sets of visitors in 1 week!  

Til next time...Happy Trails!
