My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Saturday’s scene: high desert driftwood

Treescape in Arches National Park

When I think of driftwood, images of a beach scene come to mind. But the driftwood you see in today’s photo came from Arches National Park. I photographed this image while accompanying Alan on a photography workshop with exposure36 Photography. Visits to national parks make the best baby boomer travel adventures. This weekend marks the beginning of a series of free admission days in our National Parks. Here’s the 2012 schedule so that you can plan your trip: April 21 – 29, National Parks Week; June 9, Get Outdoors Day; September 29, National Public Lands Day and November 10 – 12, Veterans Day.

Which National Park is on your 2012 boomer travel schedule? Post a comment to let us know. Alan and I are hoping to explore in Glacier National Park.
