Giant Springs Fish Hatchery & State Park, Great Falls, MT…

The spring fed pond at Giant Springs is beautiful, and home to huge fish! ourtravelingtribe.com

In Great Falls, MT, one of our favorite stops is the Giant Springs State Park and Fish Hatchery!  Located right on the Yellowstone River, near the ‘great falls’, and a mere half mile from the Lewis and Clark Discovery Center, the hatchery and park are a great place to stop for a picnic lunch between […]

Lyndon B Johnson State Park and NHS…

Did you know that the Lyndon B Johnson National Historic Park is a working ranch? | ourtravelingtribe.com

We love to visit historic sites while we are traveling, and if they are enjoyable, as well as educational, that’s an extra bonus!   The Lyndon B Johnson State Park in Texas Hill Country is definitely both! The LJB State ark is really unique in that it incorporates a living history farm, working cattle ranch, […]

Our family loves to get out and explore the areas that we are visiting.   We are big on getting outdoors, and love to take the family to places that showcase the beauty and uniqueness of creation.  Enchanted Rock in the Hill Country of Texas, just 18 miles north of Fredericksburg, is one place that […]

Picacho Peak State Park in Arizona – a family fav with us!

There are several sets of cables on the way to the peak at Picacho Peak State Park! | ourtravelingtribe.com

The first year that we traveled, we didn’t know where to go or what to do.  We were just winging it. and loving the adventure of it all. When our first state park didn’t end up being a good fit for us (thanks to some creepy stalker taking pics of our little girls), we moved […]

Chief Plenty Coups State Park, MT…

Since we are parked at my parent’s for a month while Vaughn helps them remodel their new house, I’ve been trying to find some educational/fun activities for the kids.  To be honest, the area around Billings really doesn’t have much in the form of family oriented (let alone educational) destinations.  We enjoyed the Western Heritage […]

Lake Corpus Christi, TX…

When we left Potter’s Creek, we traveled just as far as Lake Corpus Christi, which is south of San Antonio.  We had not been here before, and since it is a state park, we had the privilege of renting 2 sites again.  At least we had plenty of space to park the van!    Lake […]

Giant Springs State Park, Great Falls, MT…

 After we went to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, we headed just down the road to the Giant Springs State Park, which is a pond fed by natural springs, and there is also a small playground, and a state trout (fish) hatchery.  We arrived after 4:30, because of my lost key fiasco, so we […]

Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park campground & playground…

When we went to visit the Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, besides touring the caves, we also drove around and checked out other areas of the park – like the campground  😉  (imagine that! ;)) The campground has a nice playground, so the kids spilled out of the van, and we let them play […]

Lewis & Clark Caverns…

While we really like being campground hosts, this campground is also very busy.  If we are here, we are generally doing something for the campground.  We are supposed to have Sundays and Mondays off, but if it is busy, we end up helping out after church on Sunday directing traffic or stocking t.p. because the […]

Fountainblue State Park in Louisiana…

Thanks to blogger’s new pic uploading, you get a huge picture of Caleb    Not sure how it happened, but it’s pretty cute, huh?  😉 Earlier this week we spent 2 wet, muggy nights at Fontainblue State Park just north of New Orleans. Despite the less than desirable weather, we really enjoyed our time there! […]
