On our first day at Acadia National Park, we got a good look at a baby red fox running in and out of thick vegetation, as if it was playing hide and seek with us. We were staying at the Schoodic Education Research Center, a short trek away, and from then on we looked for the baby fox each day.

I was incredibly fortunate to collaborate with Anne-Sophie Redisch, who runs the travel blog Sophie’s World, to produce an interview all about her experience with travelling.

The First National Park In The World

by Sydney Kahl / Feb 09, 2013 / 0 comments

The summer of 2011, my dad planned a trip to show me the Teton Mountain Range and Yellowstone, the first National Park in the world, created in 1872. We were scheduled to leave June 16th; the idea was to beat most of the other tourists. However, weird weather wreaked havoc on our plans both before we left New Hampshire and once we arrived out West. Who would have thought a strong wind burst would blow through Plymouth in June, snapping trees and causing a power outage resulting in school being cancelled for a day.

Pie. Raspberry Pie. Cooling just next to the oven on a wire rack. The sweet, tart fragrance fills the kitchen, making my mouth water. It’s my Grammy’s pie. She always makes it for my mom’s birthday. Her log cabin up in the colds of Canada is one of my favorite places in the world, and the smell of raspberry pie can instantly bring me back there. But I’m not there now. I’m standing outside a bakery somewhere far from her log cabin, an insane grin plastered over my face at the smell of raspberry pie.
