How many of us were able to visit all 59 National Parks of the United States in our lives? If there are such people, they are rare and lucky in their lives. But, what is a chance for an animal to visit all natural beauties and put a stamp on each place by taking a photo in front of the signs? Although this opportunity is almost equal zero, if there are real thinking parents who enjoy in adventures, the miracle can happen.
Somewhere in the Rock Canyon
This beautiful story started in 2014 when Cees proposed that Madison. As a young couple they decided to start an adventure, and soon the group of travelers has grown. Their wish was to explore all national parks in the U.S., and somewhere in the Rock Canyon, they met a kitten. The cute animal was standing like a snow leopard, and they named him Vladimir.

The race can start
We might think that with a good van the race can start, but is that necessary? Our actors look more like they're in a mood to enjoy, together with Vladimir. With their Vie, which means life in French, they did great things and some of those we will share here. Of course, we asked these guys for permission, and we were happy to get it. Unfortunately, only tiny part of their trip can be mentioned here and more info you can find on their Instagram page, or directly on their blog.

The look one cannot explain
Do you agree that facing a Bryce Canyon from this point can be a bit terrifying? It is not hard to understand why Vladimir was confused at the moment of shooting. Just look around, and the natural beauty speaks for itself.

Can you imagine how beautiful the Negro Bill's Canyon can be when you are in love? There is nothing more important than being a good person and feeling only the most beautiful feelings. Don't worry; animals count too.

Who doesn't like hiking?
Zion National Park is a great place for hiking, but is there anybody who doesn't like walking? It is evident some actors are keen on sitting on someone's back. Vladimir looks like he is a bit lazy; we hope that is only a short phase in his life.

Just hanging around
Are you ready to admit you are jealous of this happy cat? Hot day on the water of Hume Lake is a dream of many. This is only one new trophy our cat got on the trip around. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park are done, the pleasure was full.

Time to go
It is impossible to be out of the van all the time. Sometimes Cees has to drive, and Vladimir has to respect that. Isn't he cute while trying to reach something during the trip? How is it possible for a cat to be so relaxed without the possibility to do whatever he likes all the time? Vladimir is simply fantastic.

Rainy day and a walk – why not?
For this little family, it was the most important to catch the sign. Maybe a visit to Redwood National and State Park was not an easy experience for them, but they never give up. Although they couldn't find the formal entrance to the park, because there is not any, they found the sign during this cold rainy day. This deserves only the words of support.

Time for a cat picture
Sometimes, only a cat is important. Or, it is better to say that cat is always important. This beautiful picture was made at the North Cascades National Park. What a beauty, don't you think?

The place that welcomes pets
It is strange you cannot take your pet everywhere. If somebody asks me, I will allow them to stay anywhere. We are lucky that people in Wrangell – St. Elias NP have similar opinion, so it was not a problem to take Vladimir for a tour. Not many cats were there. Well, maybe he is the only one according to the stories of local people. But, for sure he is the only one who got a kiss from her mom.

Cold days in Arcadia
The Arcadia National Park was one of their favorite places during the road. The day was freezing, and the sign was not looking extraordinary, but this couple loved things this park had to offer. Did Vladimir enjoy this destination? We bet he did, no matter it was cold.

Visiting Santa Elena Canyon
How many cats have you seen on the top of the kayak in this national park? OK, we already know the answer, none except Vladimir was there. It is so obvious our little hero had a perfect time. Would you like to change places with him?

One of the most exciting parks in U.S. is Saguaro. Thanks to big saguaro which grows in this place, visitors can experience something different in comparison to other locations. Even the first steps here are a great pleasure; we can just imagine how the other parts look. Vladimir was not concentrating for this photo; some birds were around to occupy his attention.

The last one to describe
Although we are not even close to the number of parks this has family visited, one of them has to be the last in our article. Great Sand Dunes National Park was one of Vladimir's favorites places. Is that because of the sand? We cannot tell you the reason. In the middle, the family got a new member, a baby to make their joy even bigger. Now is a time to let them walk away through the desert and enjoy their life. We are thankful they have shared one part of it with us here.
