The National Parks of the United Stated of America
Without a doubt one of the greatest treasures of our country are our National Parks. One of our goals is to eventually visit all 59 of the United States National Parks. This is a lofty goal, we realize, but we feel it will be more than worth it in the long run. While we have visited many of them in the past as we traveled the country with our three boys as they grew up, we feel it is only right that we should start a new and explore them all again. These parks represent the vast diversity of our country and have inspired visitors for many generations. Some will require travel without the RV, but we will deal with those at some point. Below will be a counter of how many we have seen and each below will have a link to the parks website as well as a link to our journal of the park visits.
