During our travels we haven’t had the opportunity to visit a great deal of National Parks in the United States. I can actually count the number on one hand and have a finger or two left over.
Here are the parks we’ve visited:
On Lucas’ second trip we got to visit Badlands National Park in South Dakota which was pretty amazing. The only problem was not having more time to explore. During our last trip of 2012 to Louisville & Nashville, we visited Mammoth Cave National Park which is the world’s longest cave system. I visited Grand Canyon West with my brother a few years back and got to experience the Skywalk. However the Skywalk is outside the Grand Canyon NP. Our most recent visit to a national park was this past Thanksgiving. During our trip to Florida we got to finally visit the Everglades.
I’d definitely love to visit more of our national parks in the future. I’d like to get to experience more of the amazing natural sights that our great country has to offer.
