New Years Resolution 1: The Grand Circle Road Trip

It’s important to our family that our kids grow up exposed to nature in all its forms, and this coming season is no different. Since we recently received a National Parks pass for the year, we decided to hit the road and check out some of the places we haven’t visited yet.

As it turns out, there’s plenty of parks out there along designated cross-country driving trails that we can partake in. The best, and most recommended, one that we’ve found is the Grand Circle Road Trip that travels through Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Grand Canyon National Park, and Capitol Reef National Park.

Giving kids the opportunity to see different natural places, and the communities that surround them, helps grow a sense of community that’s greater than the place they live. It’s also important to give them an appreciation from the natural world, which we’re increasingly becoming detached from.

As we put together our travel plans, particularly renting and/or buying an RV and taking our family on the road, I’ll keep everyone updated.
