So, what do I know about National Parks, anyway?
Over a year ago, I accepted a job at Big Bend National Park for a position in maintenance and retail at Chisos Mountain Lodge. I was in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Big Bend NP is located in Southwest Texas. Getting there was a trip in itself, and I took two weeks on the road to get there.
On the way to Big Bend, I camped in Hot Springs National Park, stormed through endless logger roads of Mark Twain National Forest and camped one night; enjoyed the Ozark NSR, Buffalo NR, Cane River Creole NHP; stormed through the Big Thicket National Res; backcountry hiked and camped in the wilderness of Pedernales Falls State Park during a thunderstorm, and marveled at the Lyndon B. Johnson NHP and the Historic Landmark town of Fredericksburg. I thought that was a road trip, but it proved to be a small test run for what was to come.
Once I headed for Sedona and entered Big Bend Country, I knew I had entered a different world. Far from the upper Mid-West of grass and pine trees. I was in the land of rolling desert, rumbling with severe thunderstorms miles afar and prickly desert plant life abound.
Fast forward 4 months to the moment I was leaving Big Bend National Park, a month long road trip began. The lessons I learned during my employment at Big Bend NP and my travels to 155 other national parks, monuments, forests, historic sites, and wildlife refuges, I lay out for you in this book. My work in helping hundreds of visitors find their way will now help you in your journey.
