Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads.
Continuing my tribute to National Parks and other federally managed lands, inspired by Melinda of West Metro Mommy Reads, this week I move further west into the Central U.S.
This week's batch includes a National Seashore, a unique National Park, and two National Scenic Rivers that we have visited - a salute to the incredible beauty and variety of our federal lands and National Park system. Below are photos of, from north to south:
- Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, IN
- Mammoth Cave National Park, KY
- Current River National Scenic River, MO
- Buffalo River, National Scenic River, AR
