If you haven’t visited your local National Park maybe it is time to do so. Our Parks are so beautiful and are in almost every state of the US be it contiguous or island. On our island of Hawaii (formerly known as Big Island) we have Volcano National Park on the Hilo side. This is the home of the shield volcano’s and they are spreading their lava as we speak. Today would be a great day to visit.
I had the opportunity to visit Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks recently and then traveled down to Mojave National Preserve. Talk about diversity. The giant sequoias and the beauty of Bridal Falls and El Capitan and the giant trees and all the critters make it a must see location for anyone to visit.
At the time I was at Mojave National Preserve the wild flowers were making their appearance all over the desert. There is a parasitic plant which feels like plastic which covers the existing bushes with itself. It is a bright orange/yellow and is very pretty. Of course there are tiny little beautiful flowers there also You also can go to see the Kelso Station and learn about the history of the area. There are also the Thundering Sand dunes. Quite a variety to say the least.
