Switchbacks Episode #15: Size Matters, ft. Death Valley & Wrangell-St. Elias
Welp, happy Tuesday guys! I’m hoping my day at school today is better than yesterday, because certain third graders did not get the memo to be tired and cooperative on post-Super Bowl Day. They seemed to think it was okay to act like it was actually a Friday. Why?
Anyway, we’re back today with another episode of Switchbacks, where we ramble about the national parks we visited last year. If this is your first time tuning in, we invite you to subscribe via iTunes (or however you listen to podcasts) so you never miss an episode!
This week, we’re chatting about BIG parks. The largest national park overall, Wrangell-St. Elias in Alaska, and the largest national park in the contiguous U.S., Death Valley, were both unique in their own ways, but they had one thing in common: they outsized the rest. These parks can be tricky to navigate: Death Valley having tons of scenic drives and long roads, and Wrangell being in, well, Alaska, but they are well worth the trek.
Enjoy the listen, everyone!
