“The wide world is all about you; you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Whether you’re single, married, a parent, a grandparent, a morlock, any race, any religion, you’d benefit from more time in our National Parks.

Mother Nature doesn’t care what you do for a living, what you look like, how you feel, or what’s going on in your life; she’s just happy you’re taking the time to visit her.  You’re going to remember your time spent with her much more fondly than long hours at the office, Netflix binges, or with that questionable Tinder date.

This website will chronicle my journey across 37 US States, 3 Canadian Provinces, and 34 National Parks as I try to discover the most beautiful parts of North America (and eat some delicious pies along the way).

Whatever it is that you’re passionate about, go find it.  If that includes the great outdoors, I encourage you to visit any one of our 59 gorgeous National Parks.
