In our Mailbag! episodes, we answer questions from listeners about the national parks, ranger-led tours, road trips, hiking, camping, backpacking, gear, relationships, and pretty much whatever anyone wants to ask us. In this episode, we cover these topics:
· How to tell if a trail or road has steep drop-offs before starting your trip, and how to stay calm when you’re afraid of heights in these situations,
· Tips on how to keep track of your bucket list items and where the phrase “wish bucket” came from
· Suggestions on footwear for hiking the Sliding Sands trail in Haleakala National Park
· Where to find accessibility information about trails, sights, and facilities in the national parks, and a few suggestions as to the most accessible parks in the NPS system,
· And more!
A few links we promised to share:
· Where to find info about accessibility in the national parks
· A list of the most and least accessible national parks from the AgingInPlace.org website
· A link to info about the America the Beautiful Access Pass
