New Member. 73 years old male. BS and MS in Physics. "Visited* all 58 of the 58 National Parks. Visited 86 nations, on a quest to get to 100. Visited the "Seven wonders of the World".
* I have clearly set foot on 57. For Gates of the Arctic NP I flew in a small plane at low elevation across the park to Anaktuvuk Pass, From there I hiked out of town to get into the park boundaries per the map I was using. Per the current google map I was inside the boundary.
Kobuk Valley was the hardest one to get to. Took a mail plane to Kiana, and hired a fishing guide to take me up river in his boat. We went to the middle of the park and hiked to the park's main feature, the giant inland sand dunes.
