U.S. National Parks, Monuments, etc.

These photo albums cover the places we've been, from Yellowstone to the White Mountain region of New Hampshire and every road trip destination in between. The fall colors of the Northeast are awe-inspiring, as is Minnesota's North Shore. Whether natural or man-made, the wonders of this land are endless.
