National Parks of the United States

Maps of the USA (2 of 5) :

Ali and I achieved our goal of visiting all 50 states in 2011. We need a new goal. All 59 National Parks?

We'll restrict it to the 47 parks of the 'lower 48' continental states. There are 2 in Hawaii, 1 in each of Samoa and the Virgin Islands. There are 8 in Alaska. We've visited Kenai Fjords. Wikipedia List

Our current count is 35 + 1 in Alaska. In Summer 2013, we had a 7500 mile road trip in June and July 2013 and visited the remaining 2 on the West Coast and 7 from the south-west and mountains. When we retired at the end of March 2014, we had a trip 3500 mile road trip to Arizona and Utah to complete all 32 in the West and South West. In February 2015 we enjoyed another 3500 mile road trip in Texas and New Mexico to complete all 35 Parks west of the Mississippi. We hope to have a road trip in Florida in 2017 to add 3 more parks. We hope to eventually visit the remaining 9 Parks.

There are many other places managed by the National Park Service. National Monuments such as Devil's Tower, Wyoming. National Recreation Areas such as Golden Gate. National Seashores such as Point Reyes. National Battlefields such as Gettysburg and Vicksburg. National Places of Historic Interest such as Manzanar. In all, there are more that 400 establishments in the system. I can't imagine anybody has visited them all.

We also intend to visit all 14 Presidential Libraries. We have visited 9 which are (in reverse Chronological order): Bush43, Clinton, Bush41, Reagan, Nixon, Johnson, Eisenhower, Truman, Davis.
