Andy and I have not visited any of these National Parks or Monuments and to be honest we loved looking through these places. There is so much beauty around the United States and we cannot wait to be able to visit these places. It is a drag that its National Park week and we have to stay home and not be able to enjoy nature and the beautiful weather. However, we are still keeping that faith and we believe that we will be out there very soon. We hope you stay safe and enjoyed the virtual tours of these National Parks and Monuments. We will see you in our next adventure!
