Great list, wish I could visit at least one of them when I'd a chance to go to the US someday :)

Uisce said...

this is a great list, and my parents recently got back from a tour of national parks and they said that all of us kids have to go and do it. so I guess I'd better! My 13 are up!

Janne said...

Fun! I love the Smoky Mountains!

ladydaria said...

Awesome list. I have also been to most of these but my fave would have to be the Great Smoky Mountains and Cades Cove area in Tennessee at Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. Happy TT!

Mama B said...

I've been to the Grand Canyon and Glacier National Park. Both were absolutely breathtaking!!!

Lisa said...

WOW! I haven't been to that many National Parks, but they all sound beautiful...well except the caves. I'm claustrophobic and just reading about 9" clearances gave me a panic attack.

My 13 are up

Jen said...

What a cool list! And most of them are (sort of) near me! I've been to 5, 9 and 12.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll go link you up!

Kelly said...

Kelly said...

Okay... I'm embarassed now. I thought I was on someone else's site and I got all confused... (you know KDubs by any chance? her Grandpa just passed.)
What I was going to say for yours was this: Your wordless wednesday picture .... an attention getter? No?

sorry again for the mixup.
I feel so.... sooo....

Laura said...

cool list. I'm jealous.
my list is up

The only once of them I have not been to was Mammoth because when I was in Americorps I did a whole lot of trail work in the National Park system and I love them all also...Except Arches in the winter..

monica said...

Oh that's excellent. I love to TRAVEL.

Laura said...

I forgot....girl you must come to my backyard, Yosemite!

Chickadee said...

I've been to Rocky Mtn and Grand Canyon Nat'l Park. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Grand Canyon.

I hope to be able to go to Mt. Ranier and Olympic parks this summer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Caryn said...

Great Idea for a list. I live five miles away from Arches and about half an hour from Canyonlands, so I go there all the time. (Insert smug grin here.) But it sounds like you get in your share of national park visitations as well.

My thirteen are up. Since I moved from Blogger, they are actually located at

Norma said...

What an inspiring list. We were at Glacier in 2003 during all the forest fires. We could hardly see a thing! So we bought a book and DVD! Post-trip arm chair travellers.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Nicole said...

Great list! I've been to the Great Smokey Mountains but that's about it. Maybe one of these days I'll get out of the southeast US! lol Hope you had a happy TT! Nicole (The Girl Next Door @ )
