Guide to Hiking the Scenic Trails of National Parks
REI Co-op National Parks Guide is among the most comprehensive guides to the National Parks System. Covering 50 popular sites—from Acadia National Park, in Maine, to Zion, in Utah—this photo-rich app for iOS and Android devices leads users through every step of their journey, from planning a trip to finding the most scenic trail once they’ve arrived. For each site, users will find general tips, details on camping and lodging, and average temperatures and precipitation through the year. In addition to topographical maps, users will find thoughtful write-ups about points of interest and the paths to them. They will get an honest assessment of a hike’s difficulty, as well as helpful hints (such as where to find shade along the way) from those who have walked the path.
One photograph can tell a unique and compelling story, capturing a specific moment in time and offering students opportunities to examine themselves and the world. Learning with photography can support meaningful self-inquiry, creativity, imagination, and expression in students’ lives, especially during challenging times. Photography can be used as a powerful tool for teaching and learning in the classroom and beyond.
