1... have several Lonely Planet books and I am kinda disappointed with this one
By Eduardo
I have several Lonely Planet books and I am kinda disappointed with this one. I excpected more from LP. Other guide books from LP give you insider tips where to go, things to do, lodging information. I was hoping that I would get more insight into the parks such as small hikes, where to gas up and stock up on groceries, and even some valuable campsite information. Everything in this book I can get from the National Park Service App and REI Parks App. This is just an overview of All the parks with little information limited to one to five pages depending on the park. I'll continue to buy the "country and city" guides but this book is just a waste of money with information available on several websites.
