Description
 
In this issue of American Road magazine, we salute the public lands that ring our nation with purple mountains, emerald forests, blue glaciers, and a rainbow geyser or two. Our excursion into the wild begins with "Revisiting the National Park-to-Park Highway"—a feature that examines the path taken by early motorists-turned-outdoor-enthusiasts. The route was a 5,6000-mile loop that visited the twelve western parks existing in the early 1900s. We revisit the eleven parks that survive and the one that hides today under a new designation—General Grant National Park, named for the towering trees at its heart.

Over the course of the past hundred years, some national parks and monuments have been disbanded or abolished. We recount those that exist no more in "Lost Park Postcards"—a feature that peeks at the past through pictures.

Our road departments march through Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida; dig up Dinosaur National Monument along the Utah-Colorado state line; and trace Mark Twain's adventure in Pu'uhonua o Honaunau on the island of Hawaii. Don't miss this issue's installment of "America's Playgrounds" and its tribute to Smokey Bear—an icon who has asked campers to prevent forest fires some seventy years.
