Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park

From Banff National Park, we headed to Wyoming to Yellowstone National Park. If you ask google maps how far away Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park are, it will tell you they are a short 10 minute drive apart. This is true only if you are at South entrance, which is close to the North […]

Badlands National Park

On June 7, 2018 after a 12 hour overnight drive from Springfield, MO we made it to Badlands National Park in South Dakota.

Squeezin’ In Some Scuba: Scuba Diving Certified in Grenada

This weekend, I officially became PADI (Professional Association of Diver Instructors) certified as an open water diver. I probably would not have gotten certified, if it weren’t for the tempting coral reef and saltwater marine life. Many years ago, I was diving with my dad. I was a teenager, and I knew little to nothing […]

Scales, Wails, and Airline Tales: My First International Flight

I’ve began to think that traveling is really enjoying the views and kind humans, while making every mistake you can. And while it is stressful in the moment, the most important part is being able to laugh and learn. August 7th I got to the airport at 2pm for my 4:25 pm flight from Tulsa […]

Olympic National Park

Olympic National Park reminded me of how I have always envisioned Washington: foggy and chilly with ferries! The last day in Washington was spent at this national park. Seattle, Mount Rainier, and North Cascades shared similar forecasts of sunny, clear skies and 80s. A local resident recommended taking the Edmonds-Kingston ferry to get to Olympic […]
