America's National Parks

"The United States is a big country.  Where should I start?"  I've been asked this question many times during my own travels, both here and abroad.  I do not hesitate with a reply.  "With our National Parks," I say.  "The Grand Canyon.  Yellowstone.  Yosemite.  Zion."  These are the biggies, but there are 55 other parks and each one is worth exploring.  Each one is unique.  Each one is breathtakingly beautiful.

 Please join me as I travel across the country in order to visit every single one of them. (At least I'm going to try!)  Below are the ones I have blogged about. listed in alphabetical order.  Some of them I have explored in depth; others, I have merely driven through.  All trips have been fantastic!

Happy Travels,
