During the summer and fall of 2018, we traveled to Denali National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Olympic National Park, Crater Lake National Park, Lake Tahoe, Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds and Yosemite National Park as Ambassadors for the Nation’s Vacation.

At each of these locations we shot photographs of the lodges, trails, food and of course, the adventures.

We shared about our adventures in real time via social media, blogged about them on our own travel site, created written content for Aramark’s blog and provided visual content for them to use on their own website and social media channels.
