Tell All Tuesday! Summer Snapshot!


Tell All Tuesday is a fun linky party hosted by Jayme from Teach Talk Inspire and Diana from My Day in K.  The theme this week is Summer Snapshot!  Summer is a wonderful time to relax, catch up on things around the house, and spend time with my hubby and family.  Our family lives in New York and Colorado, so we try to meet up each year for a visit and vacation.

Lately, the theme for our family vacation has been to visit near National Parks and then spend our time hiking and exploring an amazing area.  Some of these snapshots are from NP's that we visited with my family, and some are of trips with just my husband.



Cliff Palace, Mesa Verde National Park, New Mexico


Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado


Canoeing in Teton National Park, Wyoming
Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Yellowstone holds a special place in my heart because I worked 4 seasons in the park during and after college.  This past summer was the first time I had been back in many years and it was the first time my husband had ever been.  My heart felt so happy to be back in such an amazing part of this world we live in.

This summer we want to visit Mount Rainier National Park and North Cascades National Park in Washington.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure to link up with other bloggers to find about their Summer Snapshot!

    1. Hi Erin! My hubby and I love to camp so sometimes we do if it is just the two of us! However, if we are with my family we usually have a nice place through VRBO right outside of a beautiful location.

    1. Hi Erin! Yes. I have been to both Yosemite and Crater Lake. I really dig Yosemite. We used to live in the Bay Area so we would go up some weekends and cross-country ski in Yosemite. The park is very different in the winter - less crowded - so that is just fine with me!

  7. Hi Diana! I love the Tell-All Tuesday linky! I enjoyed this post since summer is an amazing time for travel. Yes, the Tetons are pretty spectacular! Though I had been there lots of times, I had never canoed and that was a great experience!
