About the Book
This book is about my 6 month journey to many of the national parks and monuments, many of them in the American west. I also include some "fun" pictures from places like the Harry and David tour in Oregon, and the "Mystery Spot" outside of Santa Cruz, California.
I am a fellow that has worn many hats over my life. I started out as a Geology Professor in Tennessee, then moved to Florida to teach 6th grade Earth Science at a private school in Clearwater. I then moved back to Tennessee to teach middle school science for a couple of years before becoming a park ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Teaching has always been my first love and that has lead me to Houston, Texas - teaching geology to college students. Having the "travel bug", I just returned from a great trip to China. Now I'm planning the next one!
