Day 278 – Thankful for #22 of 59 National Parks

Today was the last day of exploring new National Parks for us, tomorrow we head up to Canada to get the boys out of the country for the first time in their lives.  The National Park we visited today was North Cascades, and it was pretty awesome.


There was a lot less hiking than what we’re used to, but the views were spectacular.  At times it felt like we were in the Canadian Rockies near Yoho.  

The waterfalls were incredible, the mountains gorgeous, and the lakes an unbelievable shade of green from the glacial run off.  It was awesome!

So now we’ve checked off 22 of the 59 National Parks and I’m pumped to check off the remaining 37 over the next several years!
