Heading into 2018, we’re going to be working on other projects and take a break from the coloring pages – well, Rachel is and it looks like Sophie and Sadie are checking out what she’s working on next! There are almost 6 years of coloring pages, so you can keep yourself busy going through the archives. They’ll also be posted regularly on Facebook, so follow us on Facebook by clicking here.

Desert, Dessert – there are a lot of different kinds of both deserts (that are usually places that don’t get much rain) and desserts (that are usually sugary and yummy to eat). Two deserts come together in Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California – the Mojave Desert and the Colorado Desert. Sophie and Sadie are in the Mojave Desert part where the fun looking Joshua Trees grow and there are mountains of huge rocks to climb! Better to not […]
Bryce Canyon National Park is a bit like a magical fairyland. The tall structures you see are called Hoodoos or Fairy Castles! Some canyons are created by rivers – Bryce Canyon is created by ice! The way the rocks were formed, the softer rocks are on the bottom and the harder rocks are on the top. Bryce Canyon has freezing cold temperatures 200 times a year – and each time, the water in the cracks in the rock freeze and makes the crack […]
Well, last week Sophie and Sadie were at the top of Grand Canyon National Park looking down – and this week they are at the bottom looking up! And that’s really far up – it’s over one mile (6,093 feet!) from the bottom to the top of the canyon. Glad they are in a gentle part of the river. The rapids can get pretty crazy in some part of the Colorado River! Click on the image below, or click here, to open the […]
Off to Mesa Verde (green table in Spanish) National Park in Colorado! Native Americans built these pueblos (cliff dwellings) into the cliffs – partly to work with the sun. The angle of the sun in the winter warmed the stone buildings that many families lived in together and in the summer when the sun was higher in the sky, the cliffs protected the buildings from getting too hot! The Native Americans used ladders to climb up into the buildings (there are […]
Looks like Sadie has found some family in Saguara National Park in Arizona! The Sonoran Desert is the only place in the world that the Saguara Cactus grows – and they can grow pretty tall (the tallest on record was 78 feet tall)! Cacti (the plural of cactus) come in all shapes and sizes. Click on the image below, or click here, to open the coloring page, then download, print, and start coloring!
I can’t blame Sadie for being kind of scared – alligators, crocodiles, snakes! And lots more birds and reptiles and mammals and insects – in fact, while most US National Parks are about preserving beautiful and amazing places, the Everglades in Florida are about preserving an area for all of these beautiful and amazing plants, animals, and insects!

Some water springs come from melting snow coming down from the mountains. Those are usually cold. And then there are springs where the water comes up from deep inside the earth – and those are usually hot! In Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas the water comes out of the earth at 143 degrees Fahrenheit or 62 degrees Celsius. That means Sophie had better be really careful about sticking her toes in! Native American tribes had been going to the […]
