 Grand Teton National Park was established in 1929.

 As you might imagine, since Grand Teton National Park is right next door to Yellowstone National Park, there is a lot of volcanic and earthquake action here too.  Although it might not seem like it; the landscape is a...

 Mount Rushmore is one of those places that evokes childhood memories.  As ranchers, my dad couldn't be gone long from the cattle and sheep, but we would go to the Black Hills for a few days before school started.  We always went to Mt. Rushmore because we loved it so...

 Once again, the official sign for the park was out for repairs, so Teddy had to pose in front of the temporary sign in the ranger station.

 This is the boat that leaves from Grand Portage to Isle Royale National Park.  This marks the 3rd National Park that can only be...
