Podcast Episode #41: Going Deeper in the Parks, ft. Everglades and Haleakala
Happy Tuesday and happy podcast day!
After a Labor Day hiatus from the show (we were climbing mountains instead!) we are back with another episode of Switchbacks.
Even though we are happy to talk about these parks, we can’t help but keep our minds on those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, which affected so many people (and several national parks) in the Caribbean and southeast U.S. Our hearts are with those people, especially those who lost everything to the storm.
We wrote about this on our Facebook page, but there are so many ways to help out if you feel a pull. Just remember that the best thing to do is give cash to a trusted source. Here is more information about helping in the aftermath of Irma.
Today we’re talking about one of the parks affected by Irma, along with an island park on the opposite side of the country. Even though they are both parks with long warm seasons, and many people see these parks from quick overlooks and short trails, they both offer ample opportunities for getting off the beaten path.
You just have to know how.
