June Journaling Prompt #3: Plan your fantasy summer vacation to a national park. Where would you go and why? What about that location inspires you?
Lindsay’s Response: “I would love to visit Zion National Park in Utah. It's been on my bucket list for awhile now. I've visited and hiked in most of the California National Parks so I'd love to venture out. Plus, from the pictures I've seen, Zion is absolutely gorgeous. I'm hoping to get there sometime this year!”
