For the fun of it, I took a look at Google Maps this morning and entered in each park I'd like to visit during the course of "The American Project." Decidedly going in alphabetical order doesn't make a whole bunch of sense. See the image below...

30,833 Miles not including travel inside our parks seems a bit excessive.

I think we'll take another route. Somehow going from Death Valley, CA to the Everglades, FL, then to The Grand Canyon AZ seems like wasted miles with so much in between. =)
