National Parks

While on vacation for the family reunion, we managed to see four national parks in one week.  It was awesome!

First, we stayed the night at Great Basin National Park in Nevada, where we hiked up to see the Bristlecone Pine trees, which are thousands of years old:

Our next stop was at Capitol Reef National Park in Utah.  It was kinda stormy, so we didn't get to do much hiking, but the historic settlement of Fruta was really fun to see:

After we met up with family, we went to Canyonlands National Park.  We got to see petroglyphs and ruins, and we hiked to where we could see the Needles.  Someday we will have to do a longer hike and actually go in to the Needles:

The next day we went with family to Arches National Park and hiked to Delicate Arch.  It was hot, but fun and definitely worth it.

Someday we want to see all the National Parks, so we can now check these four off our list!
