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!

    Pretty darn gorgeous for sure, I can understand your appreciation of such a place. I think that the lesser known gems are the best because they don’t have the sheer traffic of the better known ones. I figure you may know that we live near Yellowstone and that is very well known mostly because of the geysers. Seeing that either in the warm or cold months is a treasure you won’t soon forget no matter how many people there are. Nature is pretty hard to beat!
