Proposed Route for 2015

Well, if everything goes according to plan, and the Lord is willing, and the van is cooperating…here is the proposed route for all 48 national parks to be completed in the year 2015! Dallas to Hot Springs (via the western round-about route!) will take me from January 1 to December 25. I’ve appended Hot Springs to Dallas through the midwest states, in order to complete all 48 states in close to a year as well!

Of course, specifics will need to be worked out in the next couple of months, but here is an overview of what I hope to cover:

  • Jan – Dallas–>Big Bend–>Guadalupe Mtns–>Carlsbad Caverns–>Saguaro–>Phoenix
  • Feb – Phoenix–>Petrified Forest–>Grand Canyon (S)–>Joshua Tree–>LA–>Death Valley–>Sequoia
  • Mar – Sequoia–>Kings Canyon–>Yosemite–>San Francisco–>Redwood–>Lassen Volcanic
  • Apr – Lassen Volcanic–>Crater Lake–>Mount Rainier–>Olympic–>North Cascades–>Glacier
  • May – Glacier–>Yellowstone–>Grand Tetons–>Craters of the Moon–>Great Basin–>Arches
  • June – Arches–>Canyonlands–>Capital Reef–>Bryce–>Zion–>Grand Canyon (N)–>Mesa Verde
  • July – Mesa Verde–>Great Sand Dunes–>Black Canyon–>Rocky Mountains–>Wind Cave–>Badlands
  • Aug – Badlands–>Roosevelt–>Voyageurs–>Isle Royale–>Minneapolis–>Grand Rapids–>Cuyahoga
  • Sep – Cuyahoga–>Harrisburg–>Letchworth–>Acadia–>Pilgrim Memorial
  • Oct – Pilgrim–>Reston, VA (work office)–>Shenandoah
  • Nov – Shenandoah–>Mammoth Cave–>Great Smoky Mtns–>Atlanta–>Congaree–>Biscayne
  • Dec – Biscayne–>Everglades–>Hot Springs

      2 more weeks and counting Elaine! I’m so glad I have this trip to look forward to…it lessens the pain of leaving St. Philip’s a little bit.
