I do love these little photographical escapes to our national parks!

Voyageurs National Park -

The voyageur - a French word meaning traveler - the namesake of Voyageurs National Park - began journeying through these interconnected waterways over 250 years ago; waterways that are one of the most important segments of the fur trade route used to open the "Great Northwest".

As park visitors travel the lakes today, it is easy to imagine the voyageurs of the past dipping their canoe paddles into the clear, dark waters to the rhythm of their songs, gliding past the rock and pines of this northern landscape.

Voyageurs National Park was established in 1975, but is filled with evidence of over 10,000 years of human life and use. Signs of Native Americans, fur traders, and homesteaders, signs of logging, mining, and commercial fishing are scattered throughout the park.

This just screams cool and refreshing.

Oh, did I mention you can see the Aurora Borealis there?

Hope you've enjoyed another glimpse at our National parks.

Have a great weekend and stay safe everyone.

YASSS.
I miss everyone so much. I feel like I can allow myself these feelings again.

When this all started, I just let go of any expectations -- it was easier to cope that way.

I have to hope that I will eventually be able to get out of here and have the means to do stuff.
