To rank the parks, we did extensive research into what each of the park have to offer. We talked to several professionals who have embarked upon the incredible adventure of exploring all 59 parks in honor of their 100th anniversary.
Jonathan Irish, a National Geographic photographer who grew up in the parks, as he says, is on his way. His trip will end on Dec, 31, 2016, this the #59in52 nickname of the project called “The Greatest American Road Trip.”
Darius Nabors, who gave TEDx Talk about Bucket Lists, has been on the road since June 2015, even though he has visited most of the national parks throughout his life. He is visiting the 59 parks in 59 weeks.
Kathy and Peter Holocombe are outdoor lifestyle and adventure sports professional photographers. They hit the road full time in June 2014 in search of adventures.
