National Parks

Who here is a fan of America's National Parks?  :cool:

 Which parks have you visited? Which ones do you want to visit? Have any good photos to share? Natural (Grand Canyon, etc.) and historical (Gettysburg, etc.) are both permitted for this thread.  :nod:

I have no idea as to a listing of which ones I've visited, but here's a picture from Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. An iceberg had just calved from the glacier:

Managed to get this fellow staring right at me in Sitka National Park, also in Alaska:

Very well-known view of Cape Breton Highlands National Park (and the Cabot Trail) looking south to Cheticamp:

I am definitely a fan of the national parks.  Partial list of the ones I've visited ("full" national parks only--national monuments, etc. not included):  Yosemite, Yellowstone, Great Basin, Arches, Canyonlands, Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Olympic, Mt. Rainier, North Cascades, Crater Lake, Glacier, Theodore Roosevelt, Badlands, Wind Cave, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain, Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

I'm from the east, so my experiences in the natural national parks are few. I've been to Hawaii Volcanoes and Badlands in the West and Shenandoah, Everglades and Acadia in the East.

My favorite national park, however, is Independence NHP in Philadelphia. What a thrill it was to visit Independence Hall and stand in the chamber where the founders signed the Declaration of Independence and later wrote the Constitution. As an American, I found it a very moving experience.

Everglades, Biscayne Bay, and Olympic National Parks are the only ones I can think of, but are we counting things like Ellis Island or San Marco National Monuments, they're pretty large parks?
