When Jett was born, the boys already had over 100 National Park Junior Ranger badges, so we didn't know what to do for Jett. ⠀
⠀
We knew he was too young to earn a badge, but we definitely wanted to keep track of the National Park sites that he did visit. ⠀
⠀
As if they read our mind, that year, the NPS came out with a fun Junior Ranger book to collect stamps from each site. They also started the Junior Ranger badge stamps that year, which are super special. These have allowed us to document every NPS site he visits.⠀
⠀
Well, he finally earned his first official Junior Ranger badge today at Indiana Dunes National Park. If you've been here in the past, you probably remember it as Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. About a month ago, it was redesignated as the newest National Park. How cool is that?⠀
⠀
Jett was so incredibly proud of his badge. He wore it all day, showing it to every person we saw. He even slept with it. ⠀
⠀
What was the first Junior Ranger badge your child earned?⠀

Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are located right beside each other in the Sierra Nevada mountains, right in the heart of California. Despite technically being two separate parks, the National Park Service has designated them to be run together as one park, naming the duo Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. .
Together, the two parks cover more than 865, 964 acres, with nearly 97% of that land being designated as wilderness. If you like going into the back country and escaping civilization, these are the parks for you!
•
Fun Fact: At more than 8,000 ft deep, Kings Canyon is the deepest canyon in the United States. The Grand Canyon by comparison, is only between 5,000-6,000ft deep.

All the alpine snow melt we’ve had has given the rivers this beautiful blue hue! Contrasting with the green makes for a beautiful photograph.

Sunset at the sand dunes. I love how the side still being hit by the sunlight glows so vibrantly while the other side has that cool, shadowy look. Taken at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park. #california #cali #southwest #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #sand #sanddunes #sunset #sun #goldenhour #outdooradventures #adventure #adventurenthusiasts #hiking #desert #idhikethat #peoplewhohike #landscapephotography #landscape #nature #naturephotography #np10k #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkfans #national_park_photography #nationalpark #travelphotography #traveling #roadtrip #nikon

We loved this little nature trail in Wind Cave NP. It starts at the visitor center, winds through this little wooded area, then climbs up to a hill with a view of the surrounding prairie. It was a great way to explore while waiting for our cave tour to start. 
Shot June 2019

This is one of my favorite hikes, and every time I go back to Arches I always try to see it. On this night we arrived only 10 minutes before dark. Astro shots weren’t going to happen due to the clouds. Wondering if we should chill or leave, suddenly about 40 youth from 2 different church groups came spilling over the hill. That made up our mind pretty quickly, we decided to head down. But halfway down, in the deep dark, I took one peek behind us and what do you know, 40 little minion headlamps were following us. I’d never seen such a strange sight. The minions eventually passed me but quickly realized they couldn’t see well without me in the lead, and also they didn’t really know where they were going. So on this night I ended up leading 40 minions (and their leaders) down from the most famous Arch in Utah.
