Since retiring in 2018 Lisa Wilson and her husband, Alex, have been traveling throughout the United States in a DA40 Diamond Star 4 seater aircraft.  Some of their favorite excursions have taken them aloft over 10 of our country’s most notable National Parks.  Join Lisa for a dramatic slideshow from these adventures in – and above – these parks:

 

Arches

Badlands

Bryce

Grand Canyon

Grand Tetons

Rocky Mountain

Teddy Roosevelt

Windcave

Yellowstone

Zion

 

In retirement Alex and I were finally able to take the trips we’d been dreaming about for years,” explains Lisa.  “There was something about finding the time at this time in our lives that made the whole concept of “TIME” an important sub-text in our travels.  And, wow!  Gazing down from above on the rocky layers of the Grand Canyon or circling the mystical hoodoos of Bryce gives a surprising sort of immediacy to geological time.
