Growing in a National Park

cropped-cropped-dscf0111.jpg

In the chaotic modern world, overflowing with electronic sub-natural terrain and little opportunity for peace and quiet, being surrounded by nature has become short of elusive. Our National Park System still offers that refuge. In our National Parks your heart and soul intermix with the external beauty unhindered by the complexity of the man-made existence that has become our recent stage. We are a creature whose development has slept under the stars for the millennia, and now we find ourselves blinded without the stars, bathed in an un-natural light. We need our wide open spaces, like air or water. Our selves demand them. Our children, especially, need these places to grow, explore, and develop unhindered by modernity.

Referred to as “America’s Best Idea”, these wild spaces lend room for our souls to flourish.There are 59 National Parks within the United States National Park System, and hundreds of additional Monuments, Military Parks, Historic Sites, Preserves, Memorials, Recreation Areas, Rivers, Seashores, Battlefield Parks, Lakeshores, Trails, and Parks.

This website chronicles the adventures of one family to rest from society those rare and special moments of connection between our internal selves and the natural world while visiting our Nation’s Greatest Treasures with our best gift, our children. There are no electronics here, no amusement park rides or video games. There is only a connection between us and the earth.
