Towards the end of the Jurassic period, 150 million years ago, shifting dunes began creating the red sandstone formations we now call of Valley of Fire. Nevada's oldest and largest state park was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1968. When I go here, I like to remember that dinosaurs once walked where I'm walking.
On the way to Iceberg Lake in Glacier. Glacier National Park is still one of the most beautiful parks I visited. All those autumn colors look awesome. I’m really looking forward to go there again, maybe in another season.
October 18th is Alaska Day, the annual celebration of the transfer of Alaska from Russia to the United States. I'm so glad that Alaska has been part of our country for 150 years, and thankful I was able to go visit with my family. (Photo from last September). #lovealaska
