Quite a few readers expressed interest in visiting more national parks after reading my recent post but wanted to know which airports to fly to and what hotel to stay at, so I thought it might be useful to compile an easy-to-use reference table for all of us planning future trips to national parks. I will start with the parks TravelWhimsy and I have visited (be sure to check out our “Trip Reports” section for some of our experiences), and plan to update/add to the table as we visit more parks.
Even though both TravelWhimsy and I have mentioned our weekend trip to Seattle, neither of us told you about a hiccup that occurred the night before our scheduled return flight.

Yes, I am ashamed to admit that for the first time I lost my driver license, the only form of government-issued picture ID I had with me during the trip! But I am not embarrassed to share the experience with you, because it could help you be better prepared and less stressed should this ever happen to you.
