All National Parks are on my "before I die" list, and I must experience each one, not just drive through. I try to do several good hikes in each one if possible. I have the Passport Book and it's got a lot of stamps in it already. Many I want to revisit. Yellowstone and Yosemite were very nice, but not tops in my book. Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree and Death Valley were awesome. Grand Canyon.. stupidly awesome. I hope to hike that rim-to-rim next year. Not sure when I'll get to Guam because I have no desire to go there to begin with. Virgin Islands I've been to and have to go back just for that damn stamp. Doing a cruise next year so that should check that off the list. Same for Everglades. There is just SO much to see in the US of A you could spend a lifetime and never go abroad.

That trip would be fun and take a long time, especially if you spend a decent amount of time in each park. I don't think I could take that long off work and still have a job when I came back.
I've been to 11 so far and soon I'll be the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smokies. Barely scratching the surface, and I loved them all.

I passed on the big heads in So Dakota, the concessionaire wanted too much to park the bike. i could see the presidential heads fine from the highway. Saw the Indian head from a distance too. Looked like he was saying " Pull My Finger".
Man made stuff is nice but doesn't equal the natural beauties.

I actually think it's a cooler record than how many provinces and states. :D

I met a young couple in WA that were on this trip in a cage with a small trailer. Both recent grads and had it as a trip to do before jobs and kids.

Not my cup of tea, but a great trip if you have year and no responsibilities.

What a great trip that would be! Plus you could make it into a "4 corners trip" real easy by going just a little farther in Maine, Washington, and California!

A 4 corners trip is on my bucket list, I would sure like to incorporate all those parks into it too.

It would take a lot of time to do it justice though, with all of those National Parks. It would probably have to be a post retirement trip.
