    Wow! This is such a perfect list! I’ve done ones a little road trip in America and I visited Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon but I wish I had more time to explore more esspecily those you recommend here! They all look amazing but I think my first choice would be North Cascades National Park ! It’s a hidden gem indeed! America is so beautiful!

    Wow! I agree with you that these are beautiful. I haven’t been to North Cascades but it is actually on our bucket list. Happy to know that we can also go kayaking there.

    Totally on the same page, people don’t realize there are so many wonderful national parks beyond the household names. North Cascades and Kings Canyon are two of my favorites. And even Yosemite, you are so right…it can be serene if you think beyond the narrow valley and explore this big beautiful park.!

    I’ve always wanted to see the giant sequoias so I’d love to go to Sequoia National Park but the others I haven’t heard of and will definitely keep an eye on for my next US trip. So many wonderful national parks to visit, it’s hard to know which one to visit first

    What a great post! I was only in Canyonlands National Park from your list. And for sure, it is worth visiting it. The rest from your list is still on my bucket list. Because of COVID, I had to stop my long road trip journey. I hope to back and continue it. And I would love to see North Cascades National Park, Black Canyon, and Sequoia National Park.

    Cascades and Sequoia are on my list…happy to hear they are the least visited. I’m currently doing a Minnesota state parks challenge and once I’m done I plan to visit more national parks.

    I so agree with your list! North Cascades is one of the most stunning parks of the US. I used to stay in Seattle and just couldn’t get enough of the trails around that area. I am yet to visit Sequoia national Park but from all I have read about it, I just can’t wait to visit! Hope the fires don’t destroy the whole area. This year has been exceptionally bad for the region. And you are right, Yosemite beyond the Valley is so peaceful and still so beautiful, wonder why people don’t venture out into the wilderness more.

      Moved to Seattle couple of years back and loving the close proximity to so many wonderful mountains and national parks. North Cascades is my favorite.

    The USA has so many amazing and beautiful National Parks. I love that you included Yosemite on this list – although a less popular part of the park.
