Jennifer has been obsessed with national parks since childhood.  This Tennessee native spent her childhood exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and traveling with her parents to National Parks and around the Caribbean.  She is always planning her next adventure and is ready to see the world while trying to visit all 59 National Park (*She is ignoring the hunk of concrete that just became a national park).  She has currently been to 47 National Parks.   With this blog and store, Jennifer hopes to inspire people to get out and visit our parks and that you don’t have to be a born and breed outdoors person to love the parks.
