Life long Souvenir… cool find!

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)

National Park Passport, National Park stamp book, National Park  

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!
