Welcome to the website

Hello, and welcome to the “From Acadia to Zion” Blog. It’s been a long time in the making, and I hope you will find something interesting, inspiring, or just plain amusing here. As I’ve said, I’m trying to visit all 391 of the National Park Service sites. Because I love coming to these places. And because I like to get my money’s worth from my $80 National Parks Pass. What can I say? This site chronicles my visits, has photos where available, and links to other websites, maps, and other resources that may be of interest. At this point I have finished writing up the 41 “National Park” sites that I’ve been to, but this leaves all the other designations (National Historic Site, National Scenic River, National Wildlife Preserve, etc.). I’m going to work on the National Monuments next. 

Hopefully this site is going to be interactive, which means I want YOU to add your thoughts and tips to each of the park sites. Hopefully, this will be of use to future generations who visit the parks (as long as my Internet Service Provider keeps these pages up at least…)

So dig in and enjoy. And when you’re done reading, get out – and visit a park!
