Oh, the places I’ve been….

The shaded areas are states that I’ve visited. (And by visited, I mean actually stayed overnight or visited a site of importance…not states I’ve driven through to get to a destination, such as Nebraska. Sorry, Nebraska!)

I have plans to return to California and Utah in 2017. The itinerary includes backpacking Zion, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks in Utah, and visiting Point Reyes National Seashore in California. My husband and I have visited Bryce Canyon NP before, and I’m excited to finally experience the breathtaking scenery of Point Reyes, Zion and Capitol Reef.

Over the years, I’ve visited many National Parks (including National Historic Parks and Monuments). Here’s a list of them:
