Hey there, I’m Julia!

I’m a national park enthusiast living in San Francisco, California – and I’m on a mission to visit all 63 US national parks!

But why should you trust me to help you plan your trip?

Well, in short, I’ve been where you are. I work a 9-5 job with limited vacation days. I love exploring the outdoors. And life sometimes feels like a constant battle to balance the two.

That’s why I share itineraries and guides made with busy people in mind. So you can get the most of your time in America’s beautiful national parks.

Here you’ll find national park itineraries, plus guides on the best places to stay, things to do, and what to pack for every trip.

If I had to describe myself in only one word, it would be a planner. For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt most confident on a new adventure, knowing I’d spent weeks and months crafting the perfect trip.

I’ve visited 17 national parks so far, with another 7 on the agenda in 2022. My favorite parks to date are Glacier and Grand Teton.
