Do you have a passion for the National Parks in America?
Are you craving the chance to visit as many as you possibly can?
Have the crowds, deciding which to visit, and cost been deterrents in hitting the road to visit them?
Conor Knighton is an award-winning correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and author of Leave Only Footprints which chronicles his year spent visiting every National Park in America.
