Our upcoming roadtrip

After several weeks of deciding and occasional planning, we’ve finalized–at least for now–our upcoming roadtrip. We’re technically holding off on our honeymoon until next summer when we tackle either the Alaskan parks or the Amazon. Here’s what we’re looking at doing this year:

National Park Service units

  1. Manzanar National Historic Site (CA)
  2. Devils Postpile National Monument (CA)
  3. Yosemite National Park* (CA) for our wedding
  4. Lassen Volcanic National Park (CA)
  5. Whiskeytown-Trinity-Shasta National Recreation Area (CA)
  6. Lava Beds National Monument (CA)
  7. Oregon Caves National Monument (OR)
  8. Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park – Seattle Unit (WA)
  9. Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve (WA)
  10. San Juan Island National Historic Park (WA)
  11. North Cascades National Park (WA)
  12. Ross Lake National Recreational Area (WA)
  13. Lake Chelan National Recreational Area (WA)

Canadian Park Units

  1. Mount Revelstoke National Park (British Columbia)
  2. Glacier National Park (British Columbia)
  3. Yoho National Park (British Columbia)
  4. Kootenay National Park (British Columbia)
  5. Jasper National Park (Alberta)
  6. Banff National Park (Alberta)
  7. Banff Park Museum National Historic Site (Alberta)
  8. Cave and Basin National Historic Site (Alberta)
  9. Bar U Ranch National Historic Site (Alberta)

We are also considering hitting a couple additional Canadian parks and maybe an additional NPS unit or two as well. This would bump up our total National Park Service units visited to the low 180s, and would get us to about 9 total Canadian national parks (about 30%).
