Just Go to Grand Teton National Park - Hiking the Cascade Canyon Trail (with Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point)
Yellowstone National Park was the first national park, so it is no surprise that it continually ranks as one of the 10 most popular national parks in the United States. The most popular areas of the park are busy and parking lots seem inadequate to accommodate the massive crowds during the summer months. However, Yellowstone still deserves a place on everyone’s bucket list.
Guadalupe Mountains National Park ranks as one of the least attended parks in the United States. Perhaps one reason for the light attendance is that most of the sights in the park require a bit of hiking. For those that are willing to strap on their boots and get on the trail, they are in for a great experience!
The Devil’s Hall Trail is one of several moderately difficult trails in the park. We hiked it as a family in early 2018 and highly recommend it!
Death Valley National Park occupies over 3 million acres on the border of California and Nevada. This desolate area isn’t what comes to mind when you think of the most beautiful places in the world, but those that make the 2.5-hour trek from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas are in for an unexpected treat. Based on our time in the park, here are a few reasons why you should add Death Valley to your list of travel destinations!
In 2017, Big Bend National Park had over 442,641 visitors, making 2017 its busiest year on record! Park visits were especially high during the month of March when the weather is typically mild, the cacti are in bloom and many are on spring break.
Big Bend is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. It offers visitors spectacular scenic vistas, hundreds of miles of hiking trails and roads for exploring, the mighty Rio Grande River for float trips and some of the darkest night skies in the lower 48. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent trip and wished we had more time in this amazing park!
