Not only National Parks, but so many of our State Parks are tops in scenery and enjoyment.

We have visited many National and State Parks over the years and will continue

The past few years we see more trash people not picking up after pets, tossing soda cups and food wrappers

If it is close to where we walk we pick up after them

Most if the trash tossed comes from folks that appear to be <40

We all need to try and help out keeping the parks pristine for the next visitor

How can you tell the age of the person who tossed the trash before you got there?

We are hitting Shenandoah National Park this year and possibly adding in Indiana Dunes and Cuyahoga Valley also. Each one of them are a treasure and I’m glad to be able to take advantage of them.

There are actually 61 National Parks now. Last Friday President Trump made Indiana Dunes the newest on the list! Way darn cool.

Indiana Dunes.... a beautiful area and now a national park. It previously was a national lakeshore.... at least it was protected.
