Two more parks have been ordered for the 1st time! Say hello to Kenai Fjords NP and Kings Canyon NP. These stickers are perfect for water bottles, laptops, helmets, and basically anything you can think of (except rocks).

Fast facts:

Kenai Fjords is the smallest National Park in Alaska, but it's still almost the size of Rhode Island. Wildlife includes lynx, brown & black bears, peregrine falcons, and orca.

Kings Canyon is administered jointly with Sequoia, as the parks are adjacent to each other. KC features the General Grant Tree, which is the 2nd largest tree in the world (as measured by trunk volume). It's thought to be ~1,650 years old!

On July 2, 1863, Colonel Strong Vincent looked to Joshua Chamberlain and the 20th Maine regiment to defend Little Round Top “at every hazard”. It was vital for the Union army to not lose this hilltop position to prevent the Confederates from breaking through their lines. At Gettysburg, the 20th Maine and other Union troops took both Little Round Top and Big Round Top. They have become immortalized through the accounts of Joshua Chamberlain.

The space cowboy has returned. All I needed was a camel pack and some bear spray. King's Canyon national park was magnificent. Fun fact I learned. Redwoods are taller than Sequoias but Sequoias are bigger and older and one tree is still growing so much every year it grows enough bark to equal a 60 foot tree. Went on the hardest/most rewarding hikes yet and I already can't wait for my next national park trip. #hikecalifornia #kingscanyonnationalpark #generalgrant #sequoianationalpark #spacecowboy

A park that’s well worth the visit as well as being home to Earth’s largest tree🌲💯 Especially considering Yosemite was covered in smoke😓

President Lincoln arrived at this station in November, 1863 the day before delivering the Gettysburg Address. President Lincoln was invited to make a few remarks at the ceremony consecrating a new cemetery for Union soldiers, but he was not the keynote speaker. That honor went to Edward Everett, a leading academic and popular orator at the time. Everett spoke before the president, delivering a 13,607-word, 2-hour-long speech. Lincoln finished his speech in 2-3 minutes.

Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks treated us to some really, really, really big and old trees. On this trip we have seen 3 title-holders for biggest tree in the world for each category of tallest, widest, and by volume. They were seriously big trees, some we could even walk through.
Death Valley NP saw 120°F heat (48°C) over 200ft beneath sea level. While it was entirely too hot to think about adventuring, we watched a video and went to some viewpoints and drove on through.

For [Frederick] Douglass, Grant was the general who had effected with the sword Lincoln’s emancipation policy, then extended those gains by backing the Fifteenth Amendment. “To Grant more than any other man the Negro owes his enfranchisement,” Douglass stated. Grant enjoyed a special niche in his pantheon, the assorted blemishes in his administration paling before his anti-Klan crusade in which “thousands have openly acknowledged the crimes charged...and peace had come to many places as never before. The scourging and slaughter of our people have so far ceased.” For readers, Douglass rattled off the unprecedented number of blacks Grant had appointed as ambassadors, customs collectors, internal revenue agents, postmasters, and clerks. Grant had also consistently welcomed him at the White House. “I have called upon him often...and have always found him to be easily accessible, gentlemanly, and cordial.” — Ron Chernow, Grant (2017). #RonChernow #UlyssesSGrant #FrederickDouglass #CivilWar #GeneralGrant #PenguinPress #📖 #📚

So this past week I had some vacation time and went up north to visit my family which was great cause I love my family and haven’t seen them in a few years, I’m also glad my nephew made the trip with me it was good to see him get out for a few days. These are a couple pics from Sunday when we took a trip to see General Grant, the second largest tree on earth.
