Find the best National Geographic picks in 32 amazing national parks including Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, the Everglades' Nine Mile Pond Canoe Trail, and Yosemite's exquisite Snow Creek Trail. Discover that Lamar Valley is home to many of the park's wolf packs; why the Everglades is the domain of the pink flamingo; and that astounding views of Yosemite's Half Dome and Tenaya Canyon are accessible on an easy day hike. The majority of national park visitors often stick to the most celebrated trails and scenic overlooks, missing a whole world of stunning scenery in the process. Informed by park rangers, superintendents, and frequent park visitors, National Geographic Secrets of the National Parks provides all the inspiration and information you need to plan your visit beyond the well-trodden, touristy spots in these 32 great national parks. Stunning photographs, informative sidebars, and easy-to-use maps will help make your next national park adventure memorable.

In the writing style and superb color photography that National Geographic is known for, the guide describes places--or just times of the day or year in some cases--in US national parks that are rarely visited. Official information from the park and detailed maps are augmented by personal hints and pointers from authors who know the area well. The arrangement is geographical, with sections on the east, southwest and The Rockies, the Pacific Rim, and other parks including the Virgin Islands and American Samoa.
