To end this celebration of our country's national parks, it's now time to announce the winner of the National Park Week Giveaway for a Verabelle buffalo applique. Thanks to all who entered the contest by telling me about your favorite park experience or sharing your national park wish list. There were a lot of wonderful stories and ideas of places to visit!
