About The Project
The Greatest American Road Trip started on January 1, 2016 and will end on December 31, 2016. During that time, we are on the road in a 4X4 SUV, with an Airstream trailer in tow, visiting all 59 U.S. National Parks in 52 weeks—about one per week. With parks located in the Caribbean, northern Alaska, American Samoa in the Pacific and everywhere in between, this is an ambitious, yet attainable goal. In order to make it happen, we've plotted our route carefully and planned contingencies so that we can capture the best of every park in one calendar year.
About This Website
Each park will have its own gallery page on this website with photographs, timelapse video, stories, shareable media, quotations, and other content relevant to our experiences in the national parks. Select 'National Parks' in the navigation header and search for your favorite park. If it is represented by a darkened image, we have not yet visited it.
Also being created this year but not presented on this website are black and white film prints, illustrations drawn with the Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro, and Virtual Reality (VR) video.
The 'Map' page shows locations and gives descriptions of all U.S. National Parks in the lower 48, Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, and in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We will reveal our route as the trip unfolds. To see the full picture, you'll just have to travel along with us! If you haven't already, please sign up to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook.

Finally, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you. We are grateful and overwhelmed by the enormous amount of support given to us by family, friends, organizations, companies, and many others across the country and world. Because you get it, we want to do it even more. We hope you will enjoy following our journey!
