We have yet to visit those with an asterisk.  We are particularly hoping Biscayne National Park [in the first list] opens before we move away from Florida.

About ralietravels

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.

    Another incredible collection Ray. The bison on the road looks like one not to be messed with. I’d have to say the convertible looks a bit close. Possibly just the angle. I hope one day we will feel comfortable again to get in the vehicle and make a extensive road trip visiting some of these wonders.

  2. Beautiful pictures and the bridge is quite awesome!
    But I not sure, if I would have liked to be in this convertible and the bison coming towards me!
    Kindest regards,

  3. I really wish I’d visited Arizona, not just for Saguaro NP,, but also the Kofa wildlife refuge and Organ Pipes monument,. I suppose with my skin colour getting too close to the Mexican border could be a bit of a risk these days, which is part of my regret at not having done this ten or twenty years ago.

      Your comment on getting close to the border is disturbing in so many ways, not the least because there is some truth to it. But I would encourage you not to worry. The media, as always, tends to blow things way out of proportion. There are problems and problem people, but not nearly what one would be led to believe by either the news outlets or the Internet. It has always been thus. I recall going to New York on business in the 1970s and later telling a colleague I had enjoyed jogging in Central Park before going to my meetings. He said, weren’t you frightened of getting mugged by thieves. I honestly replied, my only danger was being run over by the thousands of other joggers out at the same time.
