This is a post I wrote a year ago about how my family had become my top priority and what I am most passionate about at this stage in my life. I also list many of the things I am most looking forward to experiencing in many of the National Parks with my kids. It’s still one of my favorite posts I’ve written and it certainly rings true today.
I first became obsessed with America’s National Parks in the summer of 2004. I was 23 years old and had just finished college. I went on an 11-day solo road trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I went on five more road trips out west over the next seven years. The following year I got married, and then the year after that I flew to Las Vegas with my wife and in-laws. We rented a van and drove around the Southwest for eight days. All told, I went on seven National Park trips in ten years.
