Trying to take my son to all of them eventually and high point as many myself as I can (I realize I more than likely won't finish the latter)
Sequoia National Park
Guadalupe Mountains National Park
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Wind Cave National Park
Shenandoah National Park
Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Acadia National Park
Congaree National Park
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Grand Canyon National Park
Carlsbad Caverns National Park
Everglades National Park
And about 200 visits... America's best idea indeed.
I have been very fortunate to see so much of this great country.
Of course, I've had the same thought - which outdoors fan wouldn't want to claim she visited all of the 58 National Parks? I even bought the passport to stamp at each of these at some point - of course I lost it... Maybe I should start all over again. :) Here are the 13 I've done so far:
- Death Valley
- Grand Canyon
- Great Sand Dunes
- Smoky Mtns.
- Mt Rainier (did not climb it - just hiked around)
- Virgin Islands
I have been to many of the National parks and plan to get to all of them some day. They are great and very good at preserving nature and the surrounding areas.
