Westmoreland State Park is located in Montross, Virginia, and it sits on the Potomac River’s Northern Neck. The park is filled with great hiking trails, and my favorite is the Turkey Neck Trail which leads to Fossil Beach—a 3 mile loop! The trial is a moderate hike with short elevations and narrow passings. A person will see a variety of wildlife and wetlands as they journey through a canopy of trees. Fossil Beach welcomes all, and it’s a great halfway point for a relaxing break to swim and hunt for sharks teeth.
I visited the Cesar Chavez National Monument outside of Bakersfield, California. It’s located off a remote highway on a scenic drive filled with intresting sights and desert views. It’s a prefect place to take a break from your roadtrip, eat a packed lunch, and read a chapter in your favorite book.
