Nice post of the Cape, I love the arial. I was at the Cape over the weekend. It was well over 70 degrees out and this is November 2nd - weird. One of my kids actually went swimming, I could not believe it.

I only have one National Park in my area. Hot Springs National Park and it's a bit atypical of American national parks. Anyway here's a few pics I took last spring.
