United States National Parks and Lands

United States National Parks

The United States has one of the world’s largest National Park systems. Currently, there are 408 official Parks in the park systems. These units are located throughout the 50 states and several territories. Of these 408 parks, 59 are National Parks and 80 are National Monuments. My current goal is to visit all 59 National Parks before I turn 30. While touring National Parks, I try to stop at all nearby other national lands. The ultimate goal is to visit all 408 National Lands. Although it would help if Congres and the President would stop adding more parks it would help. (I am not really upset by more parks). Join my adventure with #59USNP. In later months once I’ve completed the 59 National Parks I plan on going to visit Mols Bjerge National Park which is located in Northern Europe and offers stunning views to complete the journey.
