This is a massive book that covers city parks, state parks, and national forests, sites, monuments, sanctuaries and preserves. The contents are divided by regions of the US. Canadian sites are also included.

I immediately went to the Southwest section. I then perused the Midwest and the South sections. Some descriptions are more detailed than others. I like it when travel authors include suggested places to stay as well as dining options. While Yogerst includes suggestions to "Lay Your Head" in s

So this is my bucket list.
I was amused that this time two years ago I had never even been to New England and now I've been to almost all the parks listed in the New England section. Progress!

It seems like every year National Geographic comes out with a new resource for those of us desperate to get out of the winter doldrums and planning for our next big adventure. The best part about this book (and all of the others National Geographic gives us) is that they are really well researched, organized well, and they give you stunning photography throughout.

For anyone who wants to learn about the National Parks in the US this book is for you. There is so much to see and do. I took it out of the library and I want to take it out again. There is just so much to read it was hard to get through it all before I had to take it back. So it definitely needs to be read again.

I have created a long list of places that I need to go visit. I was disappointed that Grand Portage was not mentioned.
