Every individual must look within themselves to decide what will make their life truly spectacular. For the author it is all about travel: the excitement of discovery and learning along the way and capturing those moments in an equally spectacular image.

This book tells the story of the author's travels throughout his life with an emphasis on his love of photography and the national parks. It traces his journey from childhood, when he first experienced the time-honored road trip with his parents, through his military service, overseas and in the U.S., along with his many years in corporate America, each presenting him with new and unique travel opportunities.

The wake-up call of a cancer diagnosis set him on the path to his most exciting adventures yet. He left his job, downsized his life, and moved into an RV to make travel his full-time focus rather than a thing he did only on vacation. He set a goal to visit and photograph all fifty-nine (at the time) national parks. Well on his way toward this goal, he experienced a major setback after an early-morning fire destroyed his RV and all his possessions, forcing him to rebuild his life to stay on the path to finishing his goal.
