Spring Break vacation ideas.
    #3724802 - 02/03/05 03:44 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I work for the University and I'll be getting a week off in mid-March for Spring Break. I think want to go West or South West (in Iowa currently). My girl just bought us a National Parks Pass so I can get into any park I want for free. No big party places.... I want to avoid those university party types as much as possible!

Throw some ideas at me...

Use your pass and go to Glacier or Yellowstone National park. Those parks have some of the most beautiful country left in this world.

If I had the chance would visit the buffalo in Yellowstone... Also large elkherds there and a few wolfpacks... I hope the last one will spread out again over US. Enough food, and wolves keep the coyote numbers limited....

Yeah!! I have never been there!! I was like 3 hours from there once and, for some reason, we didn't go. I will visit there, maybe, this summer. :smile:

Never been to Yosemite but Glacier national park sure was pretty!!

I'll never forget the morons messing with the big-horn sheep (taking pictures from like 5ft away).

I am totally considering Yellowstone, I'm just a bit concerned about going there in March as weather in the mountains can be pretty unpredictable. One of my co-workers also suggested Glacier! I've been to Yellowstone twice as a child with my folks (once the year before the big fires and then aagain a few years after). That park is amazing!

I looked at Mesa Verde on a map this afternoon, too. That and the Sand Dunes national park. Too many choices!

(And if all goes well in my rubbermaid bins, I should have some fun guys to take along with me)

Right on!! Man, you should really check out Glacier. It is absolutely stunning and peaceful, at the same time!! I have never been to Mesa Verde, but it sounds cool, too. I want to go and volunteer at Yellowstone sometime, but things always come up and I am unable to. Oh well, this is the way of life, it seems.

I have read a study on this subject. Pretty scary, but it is all bound to come to a screeching halt sometime. :shrug:

Suwannee spring fest, the ultra music fest, ares' birthday...


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Me too! The huge trees in rainforests have always impressed me, their tallness never stops! I can't even imagine the great redwoods... a tree-hugger's paradise!

When we got the national parks pass it came with this little booklet on all the national parks in the US, and they all sound so good that I want to camp in all of them! I need more time off of work! Wish I had a spring break!  :thumbdown:

Unfortunately, I don't have a nice backpack yet like Gr8fulJ does  :sad:

I saw Arches and Grand Canyon a few years ago. We spent a day climbing outside of Moab and drove up to the park to watch the sun set. I've been saying I really want to go back and spend a day or two at Arches... those formations blew my mind!

Thats about a 20 minute drive from my front door! :grin:

Actually, the Southwest has some great stuff to offer in a small area...
Grand Canyon
Zion Canyon
Bryce Canyon
Monument Valley
...just to name a few that are all fairly close together.
