Kate and Tim CrowleyA Bluffton (Sun City) S.C. couple hopes to remove an item off their bucket list after this summer.

Tim and Kate Crowley are taking a summer RV trip through the Western United States, touring state parks and taking side trips along the way.

“This trip was part of the bucket list,” Tim Crowley said.

The Crowleys have also set up a blog journal of their travels as well, posting pictures and writing about the sights they have seen along the way. They said they got the idea for the blog from a friend.

“One of our friends had come out West a couple of years ago and did a blog,” Kate Crowley said. “We decided to do it just before we left.”

They said they have had 150 viewings of the blog. Family and friends also have been following them and comment on their adventures.

The Crowley’s said the trip has been fantastic and they have seen many amazing places.

“The photos on the blog do not do justice to the landscapes that we have seen,” Tim Crowley said.

They have visited such places as Rocky Mountain National Park, Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon.

“Every place is totally different,” Kate Crowley said. “From the different geographical elements of the rocks, to the lakes and rivers, its all so unique.”

The Crowleys left home May 10 and plan to return around Oct. 1. They said they are planning to take an RV trip to Alaska next year.

“It’s going to be a long trip, but it will be well worth it,” Kate Crowley said.

Free Annual Pass for Military

Free Annual Pass for Military

To show its appreciation for those who serve in the U.S. Military, on May 19 – Armed Forces Day – the National Park Service will begin issuing an annual pass offering free entrance to all 397 national parks for active duty military members and their dependents.

Military personnel must show a current, valid military identification card to obtain their pass. More information is available at www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm.

This military version of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass also permits free entrance to sites managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Forest Service. The pass is also available at these locations.

“Through the years, military members, especially those far from home in times of conflict, have found inspiration in America’s patriotic icons and majestic landscapes, places like the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon that are cared for by the National Park Service and symbolize the nation that their sacrifices protect,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “This new pass is a way to thank military members and their families for their service and their sacrifices.”

National parks and the military have strong ties going back to the establishment of Yellowstone as the world’s first national park in 1872. The U.S. Cavalry watched over America’s national parks and did double duty, serving as the first park rangers until the National Park Service was created 44 years later. During World War II, many parks were set aside for the training and care of military personnel. Today, dozens of national parks commemorate military battles and achievements.
