Glacier National Park

A Running List of National Parks I’ve visited

Yosemite National Park

I’ve been around the block a few times when it comes to visiting National Parks and it might be one of the things I’m most proud of. In the end, the goal is to get to all 59 wonders of nature.

The ones in Hawaii and Alaska will be a little more difficult – especially if that volcano doesn’t stop spewing molten lava…though maybe it’ll keep going and create a land bridge to California. We can only hope.

Below are each of the 59 national parks, listed by states. I’ve bolded and underlined the ones I’ve been to. This is more for me to keep track but I’ll also link any writing I’ve done on that park in order to show off the highlights.

As of 6/6/18: Visited 19 of these parks. One caveat, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Arches, and Canyonlands were when I was younger and I don’t fully remember/appreciated them. I’ll be headed back at some point.
