“Did you know there are over four hundred national park sites across the US…but only sixty-three of them are actually considered “National Parks”? Author Stefanie Payne is a true expert on those National Parks (having personally visited fifty-nine of them in the space of fifty-two weeks) and has shared her experience in this fun, informative, and easy-to-use journal. National Park travelers will love how clear her advice is, how easy these journaling pages make packing and preparing for their trips, and how special this book will become as they record their memories of their every adventure.”
