Mount Rushmore National Memorial / Rocky Mountain National Park / Glacier National Park

My wife recently celebrated a milestone birthday which spurred the first big vacation we've taken since our honeymoon. While we weren't able to make it overseas as we had planned, we did the next best thing, partaking in a stereotypical "great American road trip." Said road trip took us from Central Texas, through the panhandle, New Mexico, Colorado, a South Dakota detour, Wyoming, and ultimately Montana. Along the way we stopped at Rocky Mountain National ParkMount Rushmore National Memorial, and Glacier National Park.

Now to be honest, Grand Teton is still my favorite National Park that I've had the pleasure to visit, but to be honest, all of our National Parks are sites to be seen, and if you ever have the opportunity to visit any don't pass it up. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy living vicariously—if only a little bit—through these photos.

Also, if you have children you might like to know that there is a program for 4th grade children to get a free pass good for the entire year at all of our national parks through the Every Kid in a Park program. Additionally, if you're aged 62 or over you can also get a $10 lifetime pass to all of our parks. It's a heck of a deal.
