Okay, I admit that we don’t visit National Parks often but the one we visit every year is Itasca State Park at the Mississippi headwaters in Park Rapids, Minnesota.
I have to say that it’s given us some great memories like when we released a small wooden boat down the mighty Mississippi River to when a stranger gave each of my kids a marble as a sort of memorial to her brother who passed away and then told us how she had been doing this across the country to when my kids created imprints of leaves with the park staff. Great Memories!
