United States Flag
The United States is blessed with hundreds of National Park sites, state parks, and metropolitan park systems that you can visit for your dose of "backcountry". In our National Parks, you can stand on top of the highest mountain on the continent, or spend a night in the desert in the lowest spot.
Environments range from tropical to arctic, seashore to mountains, and everything in between. Click on the map below to see information on some of the places I've been, and how you can visit them yourself!
