I'm a total national park junkie. I love how accessible they make the outdoors and how they inspire people to get outside and move and most are accessible to virtually all abilities and fitness levels. I just had the good fortune to spend a week with my folks, which is a rare treat in and of itself, road-tripping out west for 10 days visiting some of the most incredible offerings of the national park system. We spent time in; Zion, Mojave Desert Preserve, Yosemite, Death Valley, Sequoia, King's Canyon, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I'm definitely itching to get back to some of these places to do some serious backpacking, this trip felt like just a quick sampler of each, of which I savored every moment.
