Dogs and National Parks

In the Have Dane, Will Travel posts I start the discussion about traveling with your pet to federal lands such as national parks, monuments, recreation areas and historical sites.  The pet regulations vary for each site and finding the information can be time-consuming as it may be buried down several links on each park webpage.  I have started a project to find this information and provide it in an easier to access from here on my blog.

This is the rating scale I am going to use for each park.
