Gorgeousness above AND below ground at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in the Chihuahuan Desert. There are more than 119 caves, some of which can be explored. The most famous/accessible is Carlsbad Cavern itself, which has a 8 acre area called “The Big Room,” the largest accessible cave chamber in the US>

National Parks 2019: Joshua Tree

It’s like a gorgeous alien landscape, Joshua Tree National Park. Like something out of a Dr Seuss book (if only Dr Seuss wasn’t such a racist). The park showcases two very different ecosystems: the Colorado Desert in the eastern portion, and the Mojave Desert in the western portion, which is slightly cooler and gives rise to the iconic Joshua Trees. Don’t tell the other parks, but this one might just be our favorite.

National Parks 2019: Great Falls

Though small compared to some of our western parks, Great Falls National Park is home to truly amazing views. Follow the Potomac River as it twists around narrow canyons and rock formations, and revel in the fact that it’s only 15 minutes from Washington, DC.

National Parks 2019: Rocky Mountain

2019 National Parks colorway Rocky Mountain in Sock

Every single time we see this park name, we start singing the John Denver song:

“But the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
Rocky mountain high (Colorado)”

This national park is “only” 415 acres, but you really feel like you’re on top of the world, and our colorway will help you get there.

National Parks 2019: Capitol Reef

National Parks 2019 colorway Capitol Reef in Sock

This week, we’re heading to red rock country in Utah to explore Capitol Reef National Park. Capitol Reef is chock-full of things you might not expect from a desert-dwelling national park, like historic orchards, full of pears and walnuts, and and actual wrinkle in the earth (scientific name: monocline). But it’s also full-on desert, with cliffs, canyons, domes, and bridges.
