national parks journal

The journal has plenty of room to record all your park visits. Pam LeBlanc photo

​I’ve checked off visits to 28 national parks so far, and with any luck I’ll eventually make it to all 63 destinations in my new national parks journal.

I love national parks and I love keeping track of the places I’ve seen, so “National Parks Bucket List: The Ultimate Adventure Journal for all 63 Parks,” by Linda Mohammad ($19.99, Epic Ink), gets top scores from me.

With a forest green faux-leather cover, the fill-it-in-yourself book looks retro on the outside. Inside you’ll find illustrations reminiscent of old-school park posters, plus space to record every camping trip, hiking route and memory from Arches to Zion.

The author’s favorite national park? Arizona’s Petrified Forest. My favorite – so far? Montana’s Glacier National Park.

The 176-page soft-cover book fits inside a hiking pack. Besides room for your own impressions, it includes maps, trivia (more people – 12.94 million – visited Great Smoky Mountains National Park than any other in 2022), and information about each park’s terrain, geography, cultural history, and wildlife.

It’s divided into geographic sections, with checklists and places to list the dates of your visit, the weather, trails you explored, and plants and animals you saw. Your final task? Rating it on a scale of one to five stars.
