Go Strollers !!: Family Trip to National Monument 01 - John Day Fossil Beds National Monument (Paperback)
We are a couple with two boys (ages 8 and 6) living in Seattle and enjoy exploring the many beautiful parks around Washington state and national parks of the US. In Feb 2017, we published our first book of 'Family Trip to National Park' series and continue to work on the next books that will soon be available.
In the meanwhile, while we have also enjoyed exploring national monuments, we found that it was difficult to acquire enough information about these sites before our actual trip. Therefore, we would like to share our experience at each of these places for families like us planning to visit national monuments with young kids.
Starting from Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming, the first national monument established in 1906 by President Roosevelt, there are 129 national monuments across 31 states. Some of national monuments have been redesignated as national parks while others have been disbanded.
John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is the first national monument that we have stayed at to explore over a course of days. During the kids' spring break of April 2017, we stayed in the city of John Day for 3 days and explored many of the park's attractions.
In this book, we have organized a summary of our family's trip including a brief journal of our journey, information that we collected before or during the trip, tips that we realized would be good to know and pictures. Because this trip is focused on travelling with young children, the difficulty level is mostly based on 'easy' courses with a couple of 'moderately challenging' attractions.
Therefore, regardless of the size of your family or the ages of your children, it is simple to think of the attractions in this book as a trip that a six-year-old enjoyed.
