Have you ever been to a national park? If you’ve been to the Statue of Liberty or the National Mall in Washington, then the answer is yes. But have you been to Grand Teton or Yellowstone? If you are Latino, the answer is probably not. The National Park Service is hoping to encourage more Latinos to visit, but they aren’t allowed to use taxpayer funds for marketing. Instead, a group of Latino bloggers were invited to take a sponsored tour of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks as part of the American Latino Expedition, or ALEX14. Latino USA producer Daisy Rosario followed them on the trip as they experienced the great outdoors. For an extended version of this story, featuring all the bloggers and a day by day account of the trip, listen here:
