National Park Geek
National Park Geek
Normally when I decide to start planning a vacation, I first think of what National Park is at the top of my list. My list of places I want to see is pretty extensive, and among the top of those places that I’m lusting over are numerous National Parks. I LOVE National Parks. I’m a true National Park geek, so far, I’ve been to 15 of the 60 National Parks in the US.
These are the parks I have visited, I would highly recommend visiting all of them:
5. Crater Lake
6. Grand Canyon
7. Grand Teton
8. Great Smoky Mountains
9. Mammoth Cave
10. Mount Rainier
There’s something breathtaking about immersing yourself in the most beautiful places the world has to offer. And what's not to love about them? You normally only have to pay a park entrance fee to have a week's worth of hiking accessible to you. Every park that I have been to offers hikes that are accessible to everyone, no matter your fitness level.
These are the parks that I would like to visit in the next 5 years:
1. Banff and Jasper (I know it’s in Canada, but I’m going)
2. Bryce Canyon
3. Black Canyon of the Gunnison (heading there this July)
4. Death Valley
7. Glacier Bay
9. Hawaiʻi Volcanoes
10. Joshua Tree
12. Kenai Fjords
13. Kings Canyon
14. North Cascades
15. Petrified Forest
17. Antelope Canyon (not a National Park, but I’m going)
Have you been to any of these? Which ones were your favorite?
