|we are still awaiting trailer repairs so it gives me more time to reflect on the journey we have had before I started this blogging thing. So this gives me a little chance to catch up and share more of the journey getting us here. Looking at these pictures and seeing how much we have done has been fun. I cant believe we have done all that! And it really has been a relatively short time period. We have been in Oregon for two winters now at my parents house. Both times about four months. When you add the five months for the Alaska trip, that takes up thirteen months of the year and a half we have been on the road. Wow. Only five months of road time and all this? Time to get rolling again!
When we travel we do a lot of sight seeing. One of the places we head to is the National Parks. we have been to twenty-nine so far since leaving New Jersey in August of 2014. Six of those were in Alaska which have been in previous entries. We have enjoyed them all. There is so much variety in the landscape, the history, the geology and the plants and animals. Even the sizes of the areas differ. From the little Hubble Trading Post National Historic Site to the enormous Grand Canyon and the Wrangell - St Elias Mountains in Alaska. So much to see, and learn about. We drove, hiked, biked and paddled in some pretty amazing places and seen some beautiful areas and learned a lot of history.
I am so glad our country has made the efforts to preserve and protect these areas for future generations.
Enjoy the pictures! I have!
