Why Visit All U.S. National Parks?

Our 2014 road trip and our 2016 road trip in Camper Dan gave us the opportunity to explore many of the 50 states in the United States. A great number of our favorite moments were those spent exploring National Park System properties, especially the natural beauty found in the parks.

The U.S. National Park Service does a fantastic job educating and preserving our natural and cultural resources and values. We always learn something new and wish to continue to broaden our horizons and appreciate the diversity of our lands.
