USA National Parks Top 5: Been and to go
The USA has a significant number of spectacular national parks, and surprisingly it's not well known. The National Parks were my selling point when I was talking DH into going to the US for the first time. Below in my top 5 list of the national parks I've been to and the top 5 of where we want to visit next.
It can't be said enough the pictures of the Grand Canyon you see do not prepare you for what you will see when you actually get there. It's spectacular and I would suggest spending more time than a day trip from Vegas.
The only one I don't have my own pictures for (it was prior to the digital age!). It's also the only entry on the east coast. This is probably due to the fact that most of our most recent travel has been to the west coast and I grew up on the west coast. I'm sure there's plenty more on the other side of the country!
