Have you been to It’s a Small World at Disneyland? National parks are just like that to me, without the chlorine smell and relentlessly cheerful songs. Which, let’s be honest, are two things the world needs a lot less of.
Like Disneyland, with National Parks you pay your entry fee, get your map, and wander around looking at beautiful or interesting sights along the way. There’s no need to think too hard about where you’re going or what you’re doing – just follow the well-marked paths and enjoy. If only there were popcorn machines, the National Parks would be perfect.
If you go to the Painted Desert in Arizona, you have to see the Petrified Forest. (You really do – they’re right next to each other.) When I was there I took about, oh, 100 photos of rocks, but you’ll be glad to know I’m not going to post them all here. Because I’d like to still have readers after today. But I had to share some:
Enjoy the weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
