Bob Howells on the ‘other’ National Parks

Q&A with Bob about our national parks

Expert forum, August 7-11, 1995
The Park Service has been scrutinized for its management of our national parks. We invited you to share your opinion about the parks with writer Bob Howells, whose guide to the less-peopled parks appears in the current issue of Outside. Read your letters and his answers on where to go for great parkland–without the Winnebago-and-cotton-candy

Bob Howells gives the lowdown on eight little-known refuges from the summer hordes in “Parklands Incognito.”

Bob Howells is a Southern California-based freelance writer and longtime correspondent for Outside. His articles appear frequently in the Review and Destinations sections. He is the author of two travel books, Backroads of Southern California and Backroads of New England, published by
