School is winding down and summer vacation is just around the corner! Many of us will pack up the car and take to the road, stopping at sites both new and familiar. Touring our national parks in the family car is akin to a rite of passage. Did you go from the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone as a kid? While I'm all grown up, national parks are still my favorite vacation destinations. In fact, my love of national parks inspired my latest book. Park Scientists: Gila Monsters, Geysers, and Grizzly Bears in America's Own Backyard has just been released! The book follows scientists working on six different projects in national parks—collaring grizzlies and studying geysers in Yellowstone, counting cacti and tracking Gila monsters in Saguaro, and studying salamanders and synchronous fireflies in Great Smoky Mountains.
The book involved lots of fantastic travel for myself and the photographer (my husband) Tom Uhlman. He also took lots of video, which he made into the fantastic book trailer above.
