Friday Fun ~ America's Wonderlands

I was looking for something on the bookshelf today when this old book caught my eye. I hadn't looked at it in ages...so I pulled it down.
1966 edition of America's Wonderlands The National Parks, by the National Geographic Society. I adore our National Park system...we are so lucky to have them!!

I LOVE the photos in the book. The natural beauty is amazing...and I get a kick out of the photos featuring people.

Folks camping in Sequoia. I wonder if she's practicing her smoke signals...or she's just burned their dinner.

Sailing off Cape Cod....or as the book reads "heeling to a spanking breeze".


Surf casters cruising the Cape Cod shoreline.

Brewing a pot of coffee in Shenandoah. She really reminds me of my mother!

Picnicking on the shore at Olympic National Park.

Campers at Yosemite. Check out those webbed aluminum chairs!

Any plans to visit a National Park in your future?

Friday Finds ~ Vintage Mackinac Island Sign

Last fall while hiking thru the woods on Mackinac Island...we came across this sign (originally posted here).


Imagine my surprise when we popped into an auction  a couple of Sunday's ago and found this...


If you enlarge the photos you'll see they are both marked M.I.S.P.C. (Mackinac Island State Park Commission). If I had a cabin...that sign would be hanging in it! Since I don't...it can be found here.

If you're not familiar with the island and would like to read more about it...start here.
