If you have been a reader of this site for any length of time, it is not secret that the boys and I travel a lot. In fact, we travel together about a third of the year, and most of that is travel spent outdoors. I love the great outdoors. I love to be outside, to explore new areas on foot, to step where past pioneers of our country have stepped and to breathe in the fresh air. I love fishing, hiking and getting my breath taken away by a beautiful sunset or remarkably peaceful site. This is a love that I am passing onto my boys. There are so many reasons that we love visiting local parks no matter where our travels take us.
