Happy 100th birthday, National Park Service!
I decided to visit Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site for my celebration. There were dreams of cake and candles, but instead I was treated to a beautiful breezy and not too hot summer day, just perfect for painting. I arrived at 9 am and promptly settled in on my favorite marble bench to capture the view of Mount Ascutney.
A slight turn to the right and the Little Studio comes into view. The grapevines on the attached pergola are heavy with grapes; surprising, considering we’re still in a drought.
Three stamps today!!!
As part of the National Park Service Centennial celebration they are generously offering free admission to all the parks through Sunday, 08/28/2016. Still haven’t figure out which one you want to visit? Please find a park and schedule a visit soon.
You won’t regret it! … even if they don’t have cake.
