When we started our Find Your Adventure series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, weâ€™ll be the first to admit we hadnâ€™t been to all 59 national parks much less the 400-odd properties watched over by the men and women of the NPS. And we still havenâ€™t, despite the string of feature stories weâ€™ve been bringing you in the pages of MotorHome magazine.
While we have upped our â€œparks visitedâ€ total in the process, there may be a handful of you out there smugly sitting back, secure in the knowledge that youâ€™ve been to them all and bought the T-shirt. But wait a minute; not so fast bucko.
Thatâ€™s because, while those â€œIâ€™ve been everywhereâ€ folks were gloating, our president has been busy adding new properties to the National Park Serviceâ€™s holdings. Like New Mexicoâ€™s Grande del Norte National Monument and Washingtonâ€™s San Juan Islands National Monument. To see the complete list, go here and here.
Once youâ€™ve seen whatâ€™s new, all thatâ€™s left is to get off your duff, load up the motorhome and go out to enjoy our new national treasures.
