Fun Fact: Catherine and her husband, who share a deep love of the National Park Service, have visited nearly every NPS site within a four hour drive of Alexandria, VA and never leave for a vacation without packing their NPS passport. Catherine’s favorite NPS site (so far) is Dry Tortugas, and her number one bucket list site is the National Park of American Samoa!
