National Geographic Society, Apr 1, 1997 - Travel - 200 pages
Relax. Linger over the national parks you'll visit in this book. Seven maps and 129 photographs will take you there. In the northern Cascade Range in Washington State, you'll hike amid snowy crags and alpine meadows. In Minnesota's Voyageurs National Park, you'll cruise among lakes once plied by fur trappers. In the badlands of North Dakota, you'll dodge bison, and off California's coast, you'll discover an isolated wildlife haven in the Channel Islands. In the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas, you'll explore an exposed portion of a 400-mile-long marine fossil reef. In Florida, you'll snorkel among the coral islands and reefs of Biscayne National Park, and in Alaska, you'll hike in the wilderness park of Katmai.
