National Geographic Complete National Parks of the US






Happy 4th of July! As I’m nearing my two-year blog anniversary, I decided I wanted to celebrate my anniversary and the “official” beginning of summer with a bang; a spectacular summer give-away. What better way to do that than by sponsoring items that offer summer fun on a budget. Many of my favorite summer memories revolve around inexpensive activities; swimming, picnics, camping, and bar-be-que.

As a grand prize for this give-away I’m giving away National Geographic Complete National Parks of the United States book. Filled with gorgeous park photos it will inspire you to explore the wonders of nature, hike outdoors, and camp among the star-filled sky. This book comes with a US map demarcating the nation’s national parks and trail systems. Who’s up for hiking the Pacific Crest trail? It also breaks down the parks by region and state.

But that’s not all (sorry if I sound like a TV informercial!) Some of my fellow Yakezie member’s have also sponsored terrific items as well:
