A Guide To America's

National Parks

“There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children's children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred.”

Theodore Roosevelt


A little about us, and how we plan these trips.

Our first trip in 2015 took us around the whole state of Colorado. We made a lot of it up along the way, and  loved stumbling on cool small towns and taking the roads less traveled. 

Since then we’ve planned our U.S. trips around seeing all of the National Parks. After too many fails, I started creating maps and spreadsheets to get the most of out of visiting each National Park. 

We stay in hotels because we haven’t mastered the art of camping, and our relationship might not survive an RV. We’re not foodies, and we’re not fancy. One of us loves mountains while the other prefers ‘urban hiking.’ We can only agree on road trip music if it’s Jimmy Buffet or something from the 80’s. But we always agree on going out of our way for places that have a Greetings Tour mural or a cat café. 

This was never meant to be a travel blog. We only want to share our travel research, experience, and mishaps to help others who share the love of travel and adventure.

Don't litter. Respect the boundaries of wildlife. Pack it out. If you want to learn more, Leave No Trace is a great resource for all things outdoor-ethics.
