This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This is a great journal! Perfect size and the right amount of blank space, plus prompts. I’ve visited about 1/3 of the parks so it will be fun to look back and enter memories. I love that Michael included stickers and a handwritten note with the Early Reviewer copy.

I wish I had this journal years ago when I first started visiting the National Parks! All 63 National Parks are listed alphabetically in this compact 7 x 5 book (perfect for slipping into a backpack.)

Each park has a page listing the year it was established, its size, approximate yearly visitation, and the approximate miles of trail. Below this is listed a few hints. Death Valley for example has this listed below it:

This park is HUGE. Spend a few days and explore.
Enjoy sunset/sunrise at Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes.
Hike Golden Canyon.
Drive Titus Canyon Road (one-way, high-clearance is a good idea.)
Goof around at the lowest place in the Americas, Badwater!
Go off-roading (Racetrack, West side Road's canyons)
Hike to Telescope Peak where you can look at the highest peak in the lower 48 (Mount Whitney) and the lowest point in the Americas (Badwater)

After each listing and the hints, there follow about two ruled pages and one completely blank page for notes, comments, impressions, or whatever you want to write about your visit. Following the last park (Zion) there are 20 blank pages for additional notes. Throughout the book, you'll find whimsical cartoons (many dealing with prairie dogs)with little factoids about the parks.

Full disclose: I won a copy of this journal in a LibraryThing giveaway.

A creative and well-put-together journal for the National Parks. This journal is well thought out and researched thoroughly by the author who is passionate about the subject.

What a neat little book! I am having a blast going through it and commenting on the parks I have already visited. As I am doing that, I am also making a list of the ones I want to visit in the future. The memories this book has revived - as well as the plans it is helping me make - are wnderful!
