Josephine’s Wilderness Adventure: A Trip to Shenandoah National Park by Christine Miller

Because I have ADD, I like to do an occasional book review to go along with all the hiking, backpacking, canoeing, camping, history, and national park write ups (along with other assorted nonsense) that I do for this esteemed website.  Today’s book is Christine Miller’s Josephine’s Wilderness Adventure: A Trip to Shenandoah National Park, which came out last month.  I’m not particularly good at writing reviews, so in case it wasn’t clear in the review below – I really enjoyed this book!

How I Spent My Summer Vacation

With a few years of COVID teaching behind me, I needed a break.  My wife and I have been to 47 states, but we’ve spent less than 8 hours in Colorado (and most of that trying unsuccessfully to fix a flat tire).  So neither gas prices nor inflation nor crazy weather nor a three month old baby were going to stop us from a exploring the heck out of Colorado (although man did they all come close at certain points).  3 1/2 week road trip… here we come!  This is how we spent our Summer vacation.

We drove through the clouds and the rain until we reached Gros Ventre Campground, where Uncle John had help from Tree Rider and The Pres with setting up camp.  While it is not the prettiest campground in the park, it is the largest in the park.  It does not take reservations in advance, but almost never fills up.  We’d spend two nights here.

Grand Teton is a spot [...]

Yellowstone National Park – Wyoming/Montana

Old Faithful

So back in 2016, we had a great six days in Glacier National Park.  But the kids had never been this far West before, so (twist our arm), we planned to take them to Yellowstone National Park.

So after a long day of driving north to south through Montana, and a night’s camping in southern Montana…

We stopped at Grant-Kors Ranch National Historic Site that day too.  Lassoing isn’t going well!

… we made it to Yellowstone [...]
