We actually saw not one, but two national sites on our trip. We drove up to Lookout Mountain to find a nature center, but then saw a sign for Buffalo Bill's grave site and decided to check it out instead. I know almost nothing about Buffalo Bill and visiting his grave site was not exactly on my 101 in 1001 list, but since we were there we figured "why not?" It was one of those places that I would never purposefully visit but appreciate for its potential to make an interesting memory. This place fit the bill.
Have you taken any good trips this summer? How do you keep up with friends and family who live far away?
