What a beautiful book! I LOVED National Geographic's latest by Stephanie Pearson, 100 Great American Parks. Chock full of stunning photographs and amazing essays all about our nation's parks - what more could I want from a travel book? We get to see the gorgeous vistas surrounding us, along with tons of tips, advice, and information about where to go and when to go. This book has it all!
I just loved flipping through the pages and getting lost in the photographs and imagining all of the vacations that I now need to take. This book is just such a treat to read. I enjoyed every minute I spent with it. 100 Great American Parks is the go-to book for anyone and everyone planning out their next excursion - you are going to LOVE this book to bits! Check it out ASAP - especially since summer is right around the corner.
