I think I’m addicted to National parks; there’s an immense vastness and beauty about them! I’m heading to Joshua tree this weekend, and I’m expecting it to be every bit as awesome and breathtaking as what I’ve experienced in other parks. You’ll find me tucked into my sleeping bag, outside my tent, and gazing up at the stars above me.

With over 400 National Parks spread across the United States. there were no shortage of stunning entries to transport the community from coast to coast for this week’s #PPNationalParks Instagram challenge with Expedia to send one lucky member of our community to Glacier National Park.
Thank you to every one of you who shared your treasured memories and thoughts on the importance of preserving and experiencing all that our National Parks have to offer.
We would like to give a special thanks to @brandonexplores and @gregorywoodman for joining us as guest judges.

Congratulations to our Instagram challenge potential winner @ryanlongnecker who will be traveling to Glacier National Park, courtesy of Expedia:
There is no such thing as “the boring part before the awesome part” when it comes to Yosemite. The roads, the trees, the clearings, the lakes, all are sort of woven together into a purposeful tapestry. At some point my wife had to cut me off on the amount of times I asked to stop to hop out and take a picture. I can’t wait to travel to all of the awesome spots this country has to offer.
Please note we’ll be taking a break from Instagram challenges this week, so keep an eye out for a new one next week as well as continued #PPNationalPark features on Expedia‘s Instagram over the next 100 days!
