#101: Grandma Joy’s Road Trip

Join us for an inspiring conversation with 92-year-old Grandma Joy and her grandson Brad, who are on a journey to visit all 63 national parks. After taking her on a camping trip seven years ago in Smoky Mountains National Park so she could see the mountains for the first time, Brad realized Grandma Joy was the perfect travel partner. Their next adventure was a 4-week road trip to visit 21 national parks, and they’re still going strong. With only one national park left to visit, their story of adventure and discovery is not just inspiring, it’s a lesson in the power of gratitude. What a perfect message for a Thanksgiving Day episode!

#100: Glacier Bay National Park

Over two hundred years ago, a 4,000-foot-thick glacier covered what is now Glacier Bay National Park. Since then, the massive glacier has receded, leaving us a spectacular bay and landscape to explore. Sitting a mere 50 miles west of Alaska’s capital city of Juneau, the park is now home to a diverse array of fantastic wildlife both in the sea and on land. Easier to get to than you might think, Glacier Bay NP is best visited in the summer months when you can stay at the lodge and take an all-day, park-led boat tour through the bay. In this episode, we talk about our experiences visiting the park and provide tips and tricks to help you plan your visit.

 

Here are a few helpful links about some of the topics in this episode:

·     Glacier Bay Lodge’s website where you can find information about the lodge and book a boat tour through the park

#97: Haunted National Park Lodges

If the historic national park lodges could talk, they’d tell us chilling stories about strange things happening over the years within their walls. From the sound of mysterious parties coming from deserted ballrooms to presidential rocking chairs moving by themselves, we’ve pulled a few of our favorite ghost stories from the history books to share with you during this spooky time of the year.
