Theodore Roosevelt National Park – Medora, North Dakota

Theodore Roosevelt National Park – South and North Unit Website – https://www.nps.gov/thro/index.htm Medora, North Dakota

This summer, our big adventure was having a new baby.  But LAST summer we took a month-long road trip out to Montana.

New “National Park” national park #2 for us on this trip was Theodore Roosevelt in North Dakota.  I wasn’t expecting much out of our two night, two day stay, pretty much just another Badlands National Park.  Instead I found a real contender for one of my favorite national parks.

We rolled into Medora in the late afternoon, having stopped a few places in our drive across most of North Dakota [...]

Voyageurs National Park – International Falls, Minnesota

Voyageurs National Park Website – https://www.nps.gov/voya/index.htm International Falls, Minnesota

This summer, our big adventure was having a new baby.  But LAST summer we took a month-long road trip out to Montana.

Our destination for Day #4 was Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, way up on the border with Canada, and our first new “National Park” National Park for this trip.

This park is mostly water, but we decided to start out with a hike on Lake Kabetogama.  The hike starts just around the corner from the Ash River Visitors Center and was three miles.

 

We then [...]

Apostle Islands National Lakeshore – Bayfield, Wisconsin

Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Website – https://www.nps.gov/apis/index.htm 415 Washington Ave, Bayfield, WI

This summer, our big adventure was having a new baby.  But LAST summer we took a month-long road trip out to Montana.

Our destination for Day #3 was the last of the four National Lakeshores – Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on Lake Superior in Wisconsin.  One thing that we hadn’t gotten to do at the other National Lakeshores was take a boat ride, and this seemed like THE National Lakeshore that needed one, since its islands and all (there isn’t much to see on the mainland).  So we got four tickets for the Grand Tour from Apostle [...]

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore – Porter, Indiana

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore – Porter, Indiana Website – https://www.nps.gov/indu/index.htm Address – 1215 North Indiana State Road 49, Porter, IN 46304

This summer, our big adventure was having a new baby.  But LAST summer we took a month-long road trip out to Montana.

On day #2, we stopped at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.  Sadly, we only had a few hours to spend here, so we opted to poke through the Visitors Center, and then drive a few miles to the Dune Succession Trail.  It was a good call.

When I think dune, I think Jersey shore “maybe as tall as I am” dune.  These were “mountain of sand next to Lake [...]
