Now that my husband and I are retired and on a fixed income, we have to plan our vacations closer to home.
I would like to visit every National Park in America. This probably won't happen because I would need a lot of money and time to do it.
Right now my favorite place is the last park we visited, Glacier National Park. We had never been to Montana where the park is located. What a beautiful state!

In August when we were there, hundreds of wild flowers bloomed in every meadow we stopped at. The white patches in this photo are some of the remaining Glaciers. They are disappearing a little more each year.
We saw two bears and Mountain goats, deer, all kinds of birds. It was beautiful! And it belongs to all of America. If you go to the official Glacier Park website there are all kinds of videos so you can see the spectacular park for yourself. There's even a video of the "Going-to-the-sun-road"!

If you are retired, you can buy a life time pass for our National parks. When we bought ours, it was ten dollars. Ten dollars gets you in to some of the most beautiful and pristine places in America, for the rest of your life! That is a great bargain!
It's always a good idea to check the parks website for weather reports before you visit Glacier, as there can still be snow in July.
Have you visited any of America's National Parks? If yes, what was your favorite?
