Parks Visited

At some point in my wanderings, probably about the time of my Alaska trip with my son in 2007, we began collecting National Park Passport Stamps. Along the way, I also started collecting patches and hiking stick medallions from wherever I hike that has them.

As my first stop when thinking about vacations seems to be the National Park Service website or Google Maps (to see what parks might be near where I am heading, I thought this might be a good place to start keeping track of the parks I have visited.

Yes, I am a bit of a #nationalparkgeek
