Friday Flashback
an addendum to the National Park Series

As you’ll recall, our family tradition is to spend a week camping and hiking at a different national park each year. But Wayne also has the goal to hike every trail in every park. Sometimes that can’t be accomplished in one week, so when we have the opportunity to go back at another time, we do – even if it means someone spends their 17th birthday out in the wild. At least we learned how to bake a cake in the Dutch oven, so he got to blow out candles! He doesn’t look too thrilled, but at least the next day he was smiling. And here are some pictures of the alligators and anhingas that didn’t show up in the pictures I took on our original visit to Everglades National Park.

So, Happy Birthday Brad! We hope you have a fun one this year 🙂
