IMG_6302My name’s Nicole. Born and raised in Northern New York, recently relocated to the city of Boston, but desperate to get back to nature as much as possible. That’s my boyfriend James. My travel companion, partner in crime and A+ copilot on all these adventures. Join us on our quest to check out all 59 National Parks.

I will be recounting my favorite parts of every park, the many pictures I take along the way, and the different forms of recreation we take part in.

I believe the following: If you can possibly drive there, always choose driving. Nothing beats a rocky cliff by the water. You should hike every single mountain you have time and energy for. And, finally, every day spent adventuring deserves a cold beer (or two) at the end.

There’s no end date or time constraint to this endeavor. My only hope is that we get to experience all fifty-nine and maybe even help you determine which are worth going to (they all are) and what you cannot miss at each one! And PLEASE feel free to give me your input. I would love advice on anything and everything, no matter the park!

I will also be sharing my experiences in all other facets of the national park service. Any national forest, landmark, state park and other beautiful destination that we have the pleasure of exploring. Doing Leslie Knope proud, one park at a time!
