I'm getting ready to go on a long weekend camping/hiking trip to Shenandoah National Park! What National Parks have you been to and how do you incorporate historic preservation during your travels?
Most of my trips have some sort of historic preservation angle – it's hard not to, some of the best sites to see while traveling are old places! This weekend, I'm excited to drive on the 100+ mile Skyline Drive, which first opened in 1934, and was added to the National Register in 1997. I also hope to see some of the historic structures in the park- more than 300 structures in Shenandoah are listed on the National Register. I did not know that – one of the reasons I love traveling so much!Thanks!Colleen
