Here are some photographs of the vacation one of our readers and her husband took as they began their life in retirement:“My husband and I retired in May and celebrated with a motor trip to several National Parks – Bryce, Zion, Shasta, Crater, Grand Tetons, Glacier and Yellowstone. The weather was glorious, the trees, streams, mountains, flowers magnificent and the various shades of green a wonder to behold. After 25 years of raising kids and being cooped up in offices, spending three weeks in nature was truly a breath of fresh air.
Of course, we also had a chance to spend a lot of time together – with some power struggles about whose turn it was to drive and which route to take. Aware of some challenges ahead – such as sharpening our communication and negotiating skills – we tried to just be in the moment most of the time.”
