David and Kay Scott, Travel Writers        
David and Kay at the end of the Oregon Trail
      The two of us have been traveling since the late 1960s and writing about it since the 1970s when we authored our first three-volume series of books about America's national parks.  We subsequently authored a book about national park lodges (currently in its 7th edition) plus numerous travel articles for newspapers and magazines.
    We have discussed travel on various radio programs and twice been interviewed on NBC's Today, once from Yellowstone National Park and again from Grand Canyon National Park.
      While particularly interested in America's national parks, we write about a wide variety of travel activities and destinations.  Past topics include include Key West, St. Augustine,  traveling through Europe by train, and following the Oregon and Lewis and Clark trails.
      We have written Web articles for Away.com, Forbestraveler.com, USAToday.com, and are regular contributors to nationalparkstraveler.com.
