Friends, it’s time for me to retreat into one of my nation’s fantastic national parks. In 2011 and 2012, we did Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Mesa Verde, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone–some of them more than once. In March, we went to Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and this summer seemed like a good time to visit Glacier National Park, tagging Grand Teton and Yellowstone again along the way.
Some of you may know that Glacier is a U.S. national park that is on both an international border and borders a Canadian national park, Waterton Lakes, and together they’re known as Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. Bring your passports, though, because everyone crossing the border these days needs one!
I’ve never been to Yosemite–that’s the only one of the three major national parks (Grand Canyon and Yellowstone being the other two) I’ve never visited. Maybe we’ll hit that in 2014.
Are there any national parks on your list this summer? Which are your favorites, and why?
