I Love National Parks!
While visiting the Walnut Canyon visitor center
we recently discovered a really cool souvenir!
They are called Passports. There are three
versions; Junior, Standard and one that
comes in a large three ring binder that can be
added to with extra inserts. (We went with the standard)
The book is organized by regions and the concept
is that every time you visit a National Park or
Monument you stop in the visitor center and
stamp your passport! The stamp or “cancelation,”
as they call it, is dated and includes the name
of the park. In the picture below you can see that the
pages have two boxes.
The top portion is supposed to be for a colored commemorative
picture called a regional stamp. (I would describe it as a sticker.)
The stickers you have to purchase separately the cancellation
stamps that you see here are free. I chose to conserve space
and use the entire page for cancelations.
The passport was about $10.00 and came with
a map of the U.S. marking all the National
Parks and Monuments. What a cool treasure for
my son and a fun tradition for our family! We have already
visited four different places right around Flagstaff.
It has now inspired us to plan a National Park
Vacation next summer!
I Love the Grand Canyon,
