History Channel 2014 calendar + National Parks ranked

No Comments

For their official 2014 Calendar, the History Channel Club has chosen 12 of my National Parks images, including 12 parks not featured in their 2012 calendar: Wrangell St Elias, Arches, Biscayne, Grand Teton, Big Bend, Saguaro, Olympic, Death Valley, Shenandoah, Isle Royale, Redwood, and Haleakala.

Speaking of National Parks selections, The Active Times recently embarked on the almost Sisyphean (and akin to a parent picking a favorite child) task to rank all 59 of the National Parks, considering factors such as accessibility, the diversity of activities available, biodiversity and straight-up awe factor. What is The Active Times ? A relatively new website dedicated to the outdoors, fitness, endurance and adventure sports launched in June 2012 by former Forbes.com CEO Jim Spanfeller and John Rasmus, founding editor of Men’s Journal and National Geographic Adventure. In the process, they asked me for my list of top 20 parks – a good answer to the frequently asked question “what are your favorite national parks ?”. See how it differs from their final list of 59 parks ranked. I’d love to hear about YOUR favorites !
