National Parks Blog
In May of 2013, I took a 5-day car trip around North and South Dakota. They are huge states and I spent almost as much time in the car as out of it, but it was a lot of fun. I grew up in North Dakota and never really appreciated the wonders around me until I moved to the densely packed east coast. Now, I long for places where I can get away, enjoy nature and quiet.
The main thrust of this trip was to see Theodore Roosevelt, Wind Cave, and Badlands National parks as part of my effort to visit the 59 National Parks. Along the way, I saw some other great sites like South Dakota's Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, and others. My blog posts on the three parks are linked below.
In these posts, I try to relay my experiences so that you have something you can build off of. Really, I just wanted another way to share my photos along with +Google Maps
that I build for each trip and Google Public Datasets I built that show the average number of monthly visits to the parks and average weather conditions.
I hope you find these helpful. Feel free to offer comments on anything I can do to improve them.
