Smart Travel Guide to 16 National Parks in the Western United States 
Camping & Hiking Guide 
(Also In-Depth Guide to Yosemite, Olympic & Grand Canyon) 
I have always been what you may call a "National Park junkie." I love the uniqueness, the natural wilderness, and the breathtaking beauty of each of our national parks. In the last 26 years, I have visited all 59 of our national parks at least once, but I must admit that I visited 35 of them more times than I want to admit. The parks that I discussed in this series, I visited a dozen times or more. Some of them I know like I know my own 23-acre ranch that I grew up and still live in Texas. 
In this three-volume guide, I'll take you to all the National Parks in the United States. Each guide will walk you through the basics so you can prepare for a trip to any of the locations listed with little to no trouble whatsoever. Then, I'll give you the must-see spots so you can enjoy the best of the National Parks in a single day if you don't have time to stay longer than that. 
I'll also give you a few itineraries in case you have the time to take a two-week trip and want to see multiple parks along the way. I'll also go into greater detail at some of the most popular parks since you'll probably want to stay several nights and see everything the park has to offer. 
In this first guide, I focus on all 16 of the National Parks in the Western United States 
This Guide is divided into 4 Parts.  
In Part -1, I discuss the following aspects of each park.A brief description of each park, along with its location, size and what makes it uniqueVisitor center information including hours of operationFees (if any)What goods and services each park has to offer (if any)If pets are allowed or notCamping information including feesReservations and Permits (if required)Weblinks for any reservation (for boats or plane, if available)Wildlife you may get to see and enjoyWeather forecast year-roundBest time to VisitTips 
In Part -2, I discuss what to do and see if you took a day trip to any of these 16 parks. 
In Part -3, I laid out two logical and well thought out 14-day park hopper plans. With each itinerary, you will be able to visit multiple parks and enjoy various activities like hiking to sightseeing. For hikers, I laid out three different hiking plans ranging from easy to difficult. I also included a few much-needed hiking tables. 
In the last part, I take you inside for an in-depth look at 3 of the most popular parks (Yosemite, Olympic & Grand Canyon) the West has to offer. This is where I get into each and every point of interest each park has to offer that is worth seeing. 
So, please feel free to use this guide to plan your first or next great outdoor adventure and have fun.

    This book is a standalone, complete story. No Cliffhangers. HFN. Multiple POV.
    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.

    The 1936 Olympic Games played a key role in the development of both Hitlers Third Reich and international sporting competition. This volume gathers original essays by modern scholars from the Games most prominent participating countries and lays out the issues -- sporting as well as political -- surrounding individual nations involvement._x000B_The Nazi Olympics opens with an analysis of Germanys preparations for the Games and the attempts by the Nazi regime to allay the international concerns about Hitlers racist ideals and expansionist ambitions._x000B_Essays follow on the United States, Great Britain, and France -- three first-class Olympian nations with misgivings about participation -- as well as German ally Italy and future ally Japan. Other essays examine the issues at stake in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands, which opposed Hitlers politics, despite embodying his Aryan ideal._x000B_Challenging the view of sport as a trivial pursuit, this collection reveals exactly how high the political stakes were in 1936 and how the Nazi Olympics distilled many of the critical geopolitical issues of the time into a contest that was anything but trivial.  _x000B_
