National Parks Week – Celebrating Our Parks
National Parks Week is here! We love all of our National, State, and Local Parks and we frequent them. T and I love nature and can’t get enough. To celebrate National Parks Weeks I thought I would pull together some of the posts from our favorite parks and natural spaces that you can visit on a day trip from the Tri-Cities. These are not all National Parks but all are amazing! For the record, I have made a list and we will be visiting plenty of our National Parks once this Safer At Home thing ends. I can not wait…
