Petroglyph National Monument is a repetitively new park, that did not exist when I was a kid. I have been to Albuquerque, a number of times but have never had the chance to explore this park. Have you? Whats your favorite thing to do here?
Many years ago I went on a backpacking trip in Joshua Tree National Park. In its own way its a beautiful but mysterious park that is certain worth some exploring.
When I was around 8 or 9, on a family vacation with two of my cousins. We visited Cedar Breaks and Bryce Canyon. Both amazing parks and great memories. With winter here Cedar Breaks is to cold to visit but… “I am dreaming of warm camping, just like the ones I use to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen to hear the birds tweet…”
Our magical adventures carry us off to the majestic BLM land of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area just out side of Las Vegas, NV. I have been to the park many times, which is set up as a big loop with many places to stop along the way to take a hike or take in the beauty of the South West.
I found myself in the Bay area once not all that long ago and saw a neat looking state park off to the south. The park has a little bit of everything – very nice views, Redwoods, rugged coastline, meadows, and even a historical museum.
