Hi everyone!

Here is part of my most recent post from my blog Let's Connect With Nature!
It's a little longer post with links and pictures...the entire post can be found here.

Hope you enjoy! As always, comments are welcome and appreciated!

There are so many beautiful parks, forests and scenic drives that it’s hard to know where to begin. Today’s post will give you nine web resources for finding parks and other natural spaces in your area.

My suggestion is to start somewhere close to where you live. There is so much you can explore in your own backyard and throughout your neighborhood. There are also local parks, historic sites and walking trails. These are the types of places you are more likely to visit often for walks and bike rides with the family.

Then, you can venture out a little further…into your state or a neighboring one. Our family has found what we call a “gem” that we like to visit once a year. Below is a picture of beautiful Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in upper Michigan (images are in the original post).

Finally, there are those once-in-a-lifetime type trips…places that are farther away but with some planning you are lucky enough to find them and visit. For our family this was our South Dakota trip. By far one of the most beautiful and memorable trips we have ever taken.

Here are some web sites you can use to start looking for one of the many beautiful spaces that are near you...continued
