Lovin’ it…

Today MSNBC has a photo slide show of Americas lesser-known national parks. Some of the parks I knew and some of the parks I didn’t but one of them is very close to my heart.

Her name, because she’s most assuredly a Her, is Isle Royale National Park and she’s beautiful.


As you may, or may not, know. I went to university up there in that neck of the woods. I love this place. I love the geology, the beautiful scenery and just the peace of the whole place. It’s like a turn back in time. I dream of going back to live. I probably never will. The weather would be murder on my Fibro. But, I’ll always think of this place fondly and consider this place “home”.

So… you can imagine my surprise when I saw my favorite gem sitting there and looking pretty on the lesser-known national park list!

    I always worry, conversely, that once the lesser known ones are known about..and visited..they will no longer be the shining gems they were, due to peoples destructive ways. Thanks Carole for the damper, you ol’ Patooty!
