We were able to go to the 3 National Parks on our road-trip. Each park was spectacular in its own right. Redwoods National Park (Stout Grove), Crater Lake National Park and John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The camera does not do justice to the locations. The redwoods were larger than they show in the pictures, and the setting was naturally silent, which only added to their stature. Crater Lake is bluer and more majestic, and we splurged on an overnight in the secluded historic lodge. The final park was the fossil beds, which was beautiful in its high desert surroundings, and fascinating in its fossil record.
