Exploring the Outdoors

The best bargain in American is exploring and camping on our public lands. (I am sure that our unspoiled, unique, and varied landscapes bring billions from foreign travelers.) The National Forests often supply the most spaced-out and inviting campsites offering good maps and trails. The National Parks might be best off season. Excellent guide books and ranger talks and meeting other campers are part of the experience. Wonderful names spring to mind: Denali, Wrangell-St.Elias, the Never Summer mountains of Co., canoeing the middle-fork of the Salmon R. in Idaho, the Grand Canyon. I am 69 now and have had a lifetime of bargain vacations and it is good to know that they are bargains that you can return to and they will be there for generations to come.
