Due to some technical difficulties, our video from Death Valley went up on YouTube on Thursday but didn’t make it to the blog and Facebook. Oops! If you’re absolutely salivating to watch our videos the moment they are published, you can subscribe to the channel on YouTube, but we do our best to get them posted everywhere.
Without further ado, extreme temperatures, more wind, and a castle in the desert! Welcome to Death Valley! Below the video, click ‘read more’ for some pictures.
We kicked off this trip with Big Bend National Park down in Southwest Texas! Click through to see how huge the sky really is out here.
Well, here it is, we’ve arrived at the end of the road for this leg of the trip! Hot Springs was an interesting park to end on, since it seems the least park-like of any park we’ve been to (even tiny Cuyahoga had more in the way of nature and hiking paths!).
We’ll have an update within the next week to discuss our plans for the rest of the trip, and we’ll post answers to some of the questions we’ve had about the parks we’ve been to so far. If you’d like to leave a question for us in the comments below, or e-mail it to us at theGAPtrip@gmail.com, we’ll be happy to dig up an answer for you!
And as always, thank you for traveling with us!
This week our video is from the Great Smoky Mountains! We spent a few days there when the leaves had just started turning to fall colors. It was pretty crowded from the ‘leaf-peepers,’ but we were still able to take a nice hike and a foggy stroll up Clingman’s Dome! Check back next Wednesday for another video!
Congaree National Park is a floodplain with a lot of interesting tree and plant life! Click through for this week’s video.
Here’s the beginning of our Southern Florida adventures- there are three National Parks at the tip of Florida so we’ll be in the sun for a couple more weeks! Check back later for blog and photo posts from these parks! As always, watch in HD for best quality.
