And joining me now I don't know if you've heard the reports -- going to our national parks is going to cost you a little bit more this summer at least that's what I've heard but we're gonna find out for -- -- Samantha brown is joining us -- you're an expert in the travel industry you're gonna help let's go to some beautiful places absolutely.
Can we do a budget.
It it national parks have always been within our budget really it's not even -- -- down to Grand Canyon.
It's about the cost of the movie tickets movie tickets -- -- I think we can spend a little money.
Well what are really are most beautiful and most historic places -- -- your favorites my -- and Green canyon.
But I also love Hawaii's national volcanoes park and he could see actually land forming in front of you.
But one thing about the park system that as a travel expert I've really come to know is that.
You know we think of always going to the big ones Yellowstone -- year in advance when there are close to 400 parks.
National parks in our country we have the most beautiful most extensive and diverse park system in the world and so really a national part.
Could be writing your own backyard to think about -- to support them.
We visit them perhaps -- how critical is it for us actually participate so many people are trying to travel overseas but supporting our parks here does that help them.
Stay there for us absolutely it's as well it builds awareness one as soon as you go to a national park I'm sure you remember your first time.
My goodness -- Wednesday night come back and really the national parks give us our identity as people -- always say.
I travel all over the world and people say how young.
America is as a country because of our constitution but it's when you're standing in gazing out at the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone that you realize -- billions of years old.
And that land we've inherited that strained his people and as a country.
And so it is imperative that we realize it's our responsibility each generation to make sure that this land.
Goes to the next generation are you -- -- I know well and I was.
Software all of those who can't pitch at -- -- our hot shower and absolutely got some are not all -- -- highlights the flush of the toilet.
You know not and not much either I mean you know you have very reasonable -- -- the whole idea the national park system.
Is that it is for everybody regardless of how much you -- who you are.
Who you vote for who you pray to it is it is the great American ideal but they are struggling.
And that's I'm really excited because I've teamed up with nature valley to preserve the parks they donated 400000 dollars to preserving the -- they wanna -- even more money but they need our help and all we have to do.
He's -- specially marked boxes of nature valley by since -- -- the parks in the front to beautiful box.

That's actually not me on the box I should try to get on the bus shouldn't ironic that -- -- great property.
But see go to this website which is preserve the parts dot com and you type in attended GUPC code.
And you are donating ten cents.
Of your purchase to another hundred grand they'll go to the 400 to make it half a million if you do this immediately you will donate a dollar of your prediction -- Dubai goes so why everybody -- -- -- -- -- and -- please tell the nature valley folks that we.
But we're hungry I and they're -- they're healthier than not the average snapping art that's my fault I should have brought some actually I travel with them -- -- albuterol that's okay -- -- I'll be hungry -- -- to.
So we put that map could put it up what -- time because as I look at the names I do a call phenomenal memory isn't going to visit some of these parks.
And for a child when you take them through when you explain the history now there's nothing -- you remember your whole life -- this is America it really is and these six parks that are.
That you see on the map here are the parks that the NP CAA and national parks conservation association as well as nature valley.
