Do You Have Your Adventure Passport???

 
Let's be real.  Most of us cannot take a trip overseas anytime we want.  For some, it would be a trip of a lifetime.  Since I love to always travel and find new, exciting spots to fly fish and photograph... I came up with an answer.  And right here in the U.S.A!!!  So, pull up a seat for a few minutes and find out what you have been missing out on... or maybe you are ahead of me on this, who knows?  Lucy from "While You Were Sleeping" (Sandra Bullock) would go all the way to Europe for a stamp in her passport.  But, we don't need to go that far...

  

You see, there is a fun passport system that allows you to collect stamps from all the parks and historic sites, right here at home!  And honestly, there is plenty to see right here without going overseas... Since most of us have already started visiting the U.S. National Parks and Monuments... Why not have a way to learn a little more about where you visited?  And a nice little momento to boot!  A win-win, I believe.  You will have a much more fun experience from collecting stamps of these historic sites and showing them to your friends and family!!
  




So, next time you take an adventure out to a National Park...take along this handy, little passport book.   I think that you will love the feeling of putting another stamp in your passport.  You will have visible marks that you have been here, or there.  You will have proof that you traveled x miles to see this person or building.  Smiles will come as you remember back to those times.  Each stamp will evoke a memory of the time you received it.  Opening that passport, looking at the filled pages, those memories will come back to you.


There is more to a National Park than this...
(Although it is nice to have)


These are the places that make National Parks so special...
(Yellowstone...Gibbon Falls)


Here is a short video on what the passport can do for you...



Sunday Tippet:    Memories are best kept not just in your mind, but documented.  As I get older anyway, it is nice to have pictures and written journals of what I saw and did.  And this passport is just another addition to making each trip out a little more special.   There are six National Parks right here in Utah.  And then there is always a pre-planned trip to something a little bit farther...

Next Spring...2013
Niagra Falls, NY.


Oh, Yeah.
