The Bucket List is all the National Parks “west of the 29”: Badlands, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Crater Lake, Grand Tetons, Glacier, Joshua Tree, Mount Hood, Mount Rushmore, North Cascades, Olympic, Rocky Mountains, Redwoods, Sequoia, all the Utah parks (Zion, Arches, Bryce, Dinosaur), Yellowstone and Yosemite.

If you’ve been to any of the NPs West of the Mississippi and have tips, let me know!

I’m going to camp & hike as much as possible – yayyyyy nature! (Right? Hopefully! Whee!) I mean, y’know, just 700 miles of trails there in Glacier. NBD, right? 🙂

Very excited to dive into a part of the country that I haven’t spent much time in!
