Have you ever wanted to visit a national park with kids? How do you choose which national park to visit? There are over 58 national parks in the U.S. -and …
My husband and I have always loved to explore the outdoors; before having children, we had many outdoor adventures together. When I became pregnant with our son, we were told over and over that once he arrived, all our outdoor adventures would have to come to an end, at least for the first couple years. Oh, how those folks were wrong.
We were determined to continue our outdoor adventures and to share them with our little guy, and we weren’t willing to wait until he was “older”. He went hiking for the first time at 6 weeks old and camping at 9 months old. He has been on a 3 week road trip to the Pacific Northwest, camped for a week in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, spent 10 days camping in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, and we just got back from a 2 week trip to Glacier National Park. He has visited 7 national parks and he’s barely 17 months old!
The minute we drove through the gates of Triangle X Ranch in Moose, Wyoming, and took in our surroundings of the dramatic Grand Teton mountains, rustic cabins, and horseback riding trails, I knew we’d picked the right dude ranch vacation for us
