Many of our national parks, monuments, and seashores were established because of their inspiring geological features -- from the geysers of Yellowstone to the granite peaks of Yosemite. In Parks and Plates, Robert J. Lillie explains the fascinating geological processes that have formed these dramatic volcanoes, shorelines, and landscapes. Structuring the text around major geological features, Lillie highlights geologic patterns across many different parks and uses over 100 park sites to illustrate plate tectonics visually. Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs, diagrams, and maps, Parks and Plates is the ideal text to enrich undergraduates' experience of our national parks.
Smart RV Travel Guide For The Lower 48 States List of RV & National Parks, the Cost, the Amenities, What to See and Do in Each State Smart RV travel guide For the Continental 48 states is a three-year compilation of all the RV parks and National parks in each and every state in the continental US. I outlined all the amenities they offer, the actual cost to stay and so much more. We gathered this data from our last three trips across all 48 states. I also included what to see, where to visit and what they are famous for in each of the states. For each state, I created a detail travel plan that covers everything that is worth seeing along with where to stay while visiting that state. There are 48 chapters, each representing one individual state. Each state is divided into three categories. "Suggested RV trips" - this is where I outline what the main attractions are for each of the states including cities, next I name each and every RV parks, the amenities they offer and what the costs are. Finally, I discuss all the state parks in each state and what perks and goodies they offer along with actual costs. By profession, I was in instructional design, where I designed various commercial and industrial training modules and helped create mini-guides which are far from writing an RV travel guide. I am not qualified to write such guides, but after our 3rd around the country trips, my wife made a convincing argument that people like us could truly benefit from such guides which we didn't have when we first started traveling around our great country. It took me little over nine months to gather all the information and start writing. It is a no-fluff guide with no storytelling as I am good at writing fiction, so I didn't even try, I stayed with the facts and information that I know is helpful to everyone that is looking to take a trip around our good ole' USA. My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to retire at age 52. We both share one passion, and that is the beautiful wide open roads and to see this great vast country of ours. We were able to buy us gently used Class A Fleetwood Southwind for a very reasonable price. It is spacious, maybe a little too spacious for just two of us, but we love every bit of it. It drives beautifully, and the interior comfort is almost like a 5-star hotel. We both love living in it. We spend roughly five months out of the year on the road; we take a 2.5 month long trip around the lower half of the country during the spring, then another 2.5-3 month's long trip during late summer to early fall around the upper part of the country. Since we have been to each of the lower 48 states a dozen or so times and tried out various parks and amenities in every state. We have decided to share all our knowledge here with you. Enjoy the freedom of open roads.
