Podcast Episode #39: Planning Ahead in the National Parks, ft. Yellowstone and Katmai
During our year in the parks, we essentially planned and executed 59 back-to-back vacations.
For some parks, the method of wing-it-and-show-up-at-the-visitor-center worked just fine. For less popular parks in the lower 48, this laid-back approach was successful.
But for other parks, planning ahead was absolutely critical for a visit to the national parks. Without prior research, we certainly wouldn’t have had the experience we did at the two parks we’re chatting about today: Yellowstone, in Montana/Idaho/Wyoming, and Katmai, in Alaska.
Listen as we discuss park logistics, doing your research, and planning in the moment at the national parks:
