What's your very favorite National Park? (BTW, JB- looking for another blog idea for that group blog?)
  1. Name of Park
  2. Location (City, State)
  3. One must-see in the park
My inner traveler thanks you. And, my outer traveler may thank you as well if any of them are enroute for my trip!

I have been to too many to give a straight answer. Some were sheer beauty, others the history. Each was a must see. If you are in Utah, Bryce or Zion both fantanstic.

The entire valley. The scenery, hikes and nature are some of the most beautiful on this planet! Try to go any season except summer...too many people!

New River Gorge National Park!!!-the best one I've seen EVER!!! Which is in Southern West Virginia and it travels South not North-one of the few rivers that travels south to north-absolutely Stunning.
White Water Rafting, Hiking, Climbing and the view of the Gorge at Beauty Mountain or at Hawks Nest! So much more view the Longest Steal Arch Bridge in the Western Hemisphere-The New River Gorge Bridge standing 850 feet above the New River!

Mammouth Cave, in Mammouth Cave, Ky off Interstate 65. This is the world's longest known cave system, with more than 390 miles explored. Any of the tours are instructive. Can see the evolution of cave exploration-- destruction vs preservation, also some very old grafitti. It's well lit and aside from climbing steps it's not physically strenuous.

Last year we visited Denali National Park in Alaska. Absolutely amazing. You can't drive in but you can take a bus that brings you in 90 miles, or you can hike. We saw a grizzly bear with her cubs, a cow moose nursing her calf, eagles, and a ton of dahl sheep. Of course the scenery was spectacular.
This year we are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone.

I just got the National Parks Passport book so I now have a map. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with addresses for each park (duh). I'll print out the park brochure for the places along our route.
