One of my first blog posts for Campfire Chic was about our (Boyfriend+me) goal to visit all of the U.S. National Parks and it mentioned the National Parks Passport.
While I haven’t been able to get many cancellations in mine (I only bought it in 2009 and some of my visits occurred prior to that), I wanted to show it off! After reading Amy’s guest post about making a travel journal, I realized that I already did a few of the things she suggested!
As you can see, not all the stamps are from National Parks! That’s what is soo cool, you can visit all sorts of places to get a stamp! I wanted to show off the new sheet of stickers that represent each region this year, but Joshua Tree only had stamps from 1999…*insert confused face here*. Once I buy the stickers, I’ll show you!
The passport is small enough for you to bring along any trip. It fits in glove boxes, your purse, and your back pocket. If you are interested in learning more about these passports (and the one specifically designed for children) you can purchase it through eParks. It’s also the perfect size if you have an Instax camera, you can paperclip a photo of yourself at the park entrance, with your passport in front of an iconic image, etc. I really want to get one for that reason! May be silly, but it’s true!
I started collecting mini binder clips and colored paperclips to use in my passport. There is a small plastic pocket in the front (where the stickers are stuck) but I want to be able to put the items/receipts/whatever I collect at each location in the correct geographical region :)
