The Condes Campers
“We are beyond thrilled to be going on this adventure with the @American_Latino Expedition. Our family has learned so much from our travels so far at National Parks, but most importantly, we’ve been able to spend time together as a family outside in nature. We were surprised to learn that even though there is so much Latino history in many of the National Parks, knowledge of this history is little known and visitation to the parks by Latinos are few. We hope to help change that.
We know that other families will love the parks as much as we do and we can’t wait to share the details of our adventure. Our hope is that it will inspire other families to get out and visit their national parks.”
