The Joshua Tree and this special park have been a iconic feature in music, film, and television over the years, but it is also one of the most unique and beautiful parks you can visit in the United States. In todays episode our virtual podcasting road trip continues as we head south to the desert and explore the stunning flora and geology that make this park special. I share the story of my first visit to the park, and I talk about the difference between a national park and national monument.
Travel Review - Yosemite National Park, California (a travel podcast!)
This park has been described as the “crown jewel” of the National Park System by the one of the most famous naturalists and outdoorsmen John Muir.

So dig into this lengthy and in depth review of one of my favorite places I have ever lived, Berlin, Germany.
Back Home - Looking forward and reflecting back - Patchats 5/27/19 (a travel podcast!)
The final chapter in my first journey to Europe comes to a close. I record one final #patchat from my parents home in California. I look forward towards another season of commercial salmon fishing in Alaska and the excitement/dread that it brings up for me. I also reflect on my last week in Germany, castle hunting in the Rhine valley, and saying goodbye to all my new friends in Berlin. Finally I talk about saying goodbye to the person who brought me to Germany, my partner, and how hard that always is.
