adding more patches to our collection

We have been collecting park patches since the BIG TRIP in 2010...we're not exactly sure what we are going to do with them and so we collect more. On the eclipse trip, we drove through, hiked, and camped in a few of Canada's National Parks and BC. When we drove back into the states, we camped and wandered around Yellowstone. Having a van has been quite helpful in keeping up our camping energy. Yay for road trips, and patches!
