A Google search http://www.nps.gov/caco/forteachers/upload/nparks.pdf says there are over 365 national parks, monuments, seashores, etc. Hmmm, if I do 3 a month that will take another 10+ years. And who can do 3 in a month? I may just have to keep RVing well into my 90's.

I recently visited Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP and Grand Staircase-Escalante and want to go back. All 3 are awesome. I hear that early Sept when the leaves are
changing is the best time.

So many parks, so many miles! Glad gas prices are coming down!

This is absolutely true, so much so that I think we bypassed some areas that we should not have missed. It's like you have to keep going to see what's just around the next bend.

I can remember being amazed at the shear vastness of the corn fields in the upper mid west...miles and miles - days. Still in the corn fields I see a big sign on I-90 that warned of an impending steep down grade...WHAT THE... in a corn field? I don't think so. It was just like the first down hill scream of a roller coaster, down into the Missouri River Valley and popping back up on the other side and into the Badlands and 16 other NPs that first summer. Seems like we would get to one NP, look around with our mouths open in wonderment and at the same time after a couple of days, would be getting antsy to leave to get to the next...it's an addiction I say, an addiction.

Ain't nothing like the view one gets from the big picture window of a RV. Bob

So far only eight (Olympic NP, WA; Grand Teton NP & Yellowstone NP, WY; Yosemite NP, CA; Badlands NP, SD; Bryce Canyon & Zion NPs, UT). Once DW retires, we'll try to see as much as we can.

So many places to go.....not enough time. I can't wait for my husband to retire in a few years so we can go explore. I've never camped in any of the National Parks but now that we have a trailer that's how I plan on going in the future.

Happy trails.
