Grandmother and grandson visit 62 national parks on adventure of a lifetime

畢生難忘的冒險祖母和孫子造訪62座國家公園

 

【摘要2022-10-23自由】林雨萱

Brad Ryan, 42, and his 92-year-old grandma, Joy Ryan, decided to go on a trip of a lifetime and tick off every single one of the US’ 63 national parks.

42歲的布萊德.萊恩和他92歲的祖母喬伊.萊恩決定開始一趟畢生難忘的旅行,一一造訪美國63座國家公園。

The national park project began spontaneously seven years ago. Brad was stunned when his grandmother — who he knew was deeply fond of nature — told him she’d never seen a mountain in person.

這個國家公園計畫7年前自發性展開。當布萊德深愛大自然的祖母告訴他,她從未親眼看過一座山時,他大吃一驚。

So he asked Joy — then 85 — if she would be interested in a road trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

所以他詢問當時85歲的喬伊,對去大煙山國家公園的公路之旅有沒有興趣。

Her response: “What time are you picking me up?”

她的回覆是:你何時來接我?

The pair have very nearly crossed every single national park off their to-do list. The one left is the National Park of American Samoa.

這兩人幾乎已經劃掉他們的待訪清單上的每一座國家公園。僅剩美屬薩摩亞國家公園。

“I wanted to be able to offer an opportunity for my grandmother to see that first mountain,”Brad said. “And she finally got to start living the life of adventure she had always been waiting for, and deserved.”

布萊德說,「我希望讓祖母能有機會看到第一座山」,「她終於開始過著期盼已久、應得的冒險生活」。
