A New Series; Our National Parks

The other day I was thinking to myself, man, I have been to over 170 national parks in the United States. That is pretty amazing! Granted, there are nearly 400 of them, but still, 170 is a big number.

I've never had a goal of being a "lister" and traveling to every single national park unit in the country. Logistically that is extremely difficult, especially when you consider some of them are in places like Guam, American Samoa, northern Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands. In addition, they are always making new ones, so just after I had swept through an area, they'll probably make a new one.

I do however, have a goal of see as many as I can reasonably get to. So, I started thinking to myself, wouldn't that be a cool series for this blog to highlight many of the park I have gone to?

I've covered many of them already in this blog. A list of those posts is now available on the sidebar. Soon, I'll start thinking other ones to focus on, with an emphasis on the hidden gems or must see destinations, and I'll post one per week from now on. 170 weeks is over 3 years, so that should keep this blog busy for a while!
