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 9th edition) plus numerous travel articles for newspapers and magazines.
      In 2016 we began writing a weekly travel column for Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc., an Alabama-based firm that owns over 110 newspapers over a 24-state area from Texas to New England.  While no longer producing a weekly column, we continue writing occasional travel articles for the firm.
    We have discussed travel on various radio programs and twice been guests 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, the Texas Hill Country, Ann Arbor, Union Pacific's Baily Yard, traveling through Europe by rail, and following the Oregon Trail and the Lewis and Clark Trail.
      We have written Web articles for Away.com, Forbestraveler.com, USAToday.com, and are regular contributors to nationalparkstraveler.com.

    Kay (Woelfel) Scott was born in Austin, MN, and raised in Yankton, SD, and Clearwater, FL.  She earned degrees from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL, and the University of Arkansas.  Kay has served as a teacher and administrator in elementary schools in Arkansas, Florida, and Georgia.
