6 National Parks in 6 Days

The kids at Petrified Forest-Arizona.  Keep moving....not much to see here.
 We didn't set out with this goal in mind, but when we realized after our fifth National Park stop, that if we at least made it into the gate of the sixth, we would have hit 6 National Parks in 6 days.  Not that I would recommend that approach to anyone.  The fact is, we hadn't planned to stop at the last two, Arches and Rocky Mountain at all until we realized we had a little cushion and that they wouldn't be that far out of our way home.  Glad we did.  I will say this, a people that don't protect what has been handed down to it by generations, for over 100 years, don't deserve the country in which they live.

Yeah dad, more rocks that were logs.  Keep moving.

Obligatory family photo at the gateway to Sequoia-California.....dry with a hint of smoke in the air.
