We're Visiting 59 US National Parks in 59 Weeks!
Welcome to 59NationalParks.com, a website about our upcoming trip to 59 National Parks in the United States. As we travel to US National Parks over this next 59 weeks, we will be chronicling our travels with blog posts, photography and social media updates.
We begin our quest at Hot Springs National Park on April 1st, 2014. From there, our travels will take us to most of the fifty States and the territories of American Samoa and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We are spending the most time in Alaska. In our twenty-three days there we will be visiting the the National Parks of Glacier Bay, Gates of the Arctic, Kobuk Valley, Lake Clark, Katmai, Kenai Fjords, Denali, and Wrangell-St. Elias. Some parks, such as Rocky Mountain National Park and Badlands National Park, we plan to visit twice to gain seasonal perspectives for our photography.
We also plan to to spend time at numerous other National Park Service units including National Monuments, National Historical Parks, and National Battlefield Sites. We plan to visit, for example, Cabrillo National Monument in California, Valley Forge National Historical Park in Pennsylvania and Pea Ridge National Military Park in Arkansas.
Our goals for National Parks journey are to promote the virtues of the parks, to inspire other to go for their dreams, and to have a little fun along the way. Please join us on our travels which we expect to complete on July 4th, 2015.READ MORE
