    National Parks I Have Been To, How About You?

    I love the mountains, especially the ones west of Mississippi river. I spent many vacations camping out west over my life, over 30 weeks. I decided to post list of all the National Parks I have either visited and or camped in. Feel free to copy my list and make your own.

    There is no such thing as a human being in the fallen state who can make a right decision. If you are in your center, it is given to you what to do in every situation and circumstance. This is the key that eliminates all decision-making on your part.

    Your attraction to external things (people, places, and objects) is the result of having lost your proper relationship with your center. By these attractions you are trying to make up for what you lost. You are really seeking peace, but you will never find it apart from God.

    That's quite a list Treasure Hunter.

    I've only been to Glacier, Arches and Canyon, Badlands, and T. Roosevelt, but I am much, much younger than you.

    I might cross The River and drive out to the northwest coast next summer, in which case it is mandatory that I revisit Glacier. Glacier is awesome. Last time I was there in July to fish MacDonald Lake. Took the Red Bus White Motorcoach to the top where people were downhill sking and snowboarding- in July.

    ETA- Oh, and Great Smokey. Didn't really stop at that one. Nice drive and it saves a heck of a lot of time to go around.

    That is big list I’ve been to several the big names. Scottsbluff monument on the Oregon trail is a neat spot.
    When I was young you could use your migratory waterfowl stamp for entry pass, your Duck stamp. I think it’s way too expensive to drive across Yellowstone, they hardly remove anything that falls on road like a tree, they don’t mow. $35 to drive threw and eat lunch has become take a different route around and look at the trees right beside that road. Bison hate selfies anyways.

    Visiting and observing Arches during the height of tourist season killed any desire I might have had to ever visit another one, and God forbid camp in one. But I encourage everyone to enjoy their National Parks, as that leaves the backcountry more open for me.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Not sure how it was left off the list, camped twice in Smokey Mountain NP, once in the winter 1970, once in the summer 1972.

    Many of my camping trips were in the fall and winter, no crowds... Camped a lot in Utah, it is my favorite state.

    On the 7 week vacation I took, roommate and I drove into Yellowstone NP on Labor day, we were the only vehicle entering the South entrance to the park, all the other vehicles were leaving. On one trip we entered Yosemite NP in the early spring from the west, on the first day the highway through the park was opened to the east side, massive snow drifts. Another winter trip we drove from Grand Junction to Durango on Hwy 550 in January with drifts 20 foot high.

    We did multiple winter camping trips to the South West, use to do a lot of winter camping in a van, had Coleman heater with us and left the windows open about 6 inches for fresh air. We turned it off when we went to sleep and fired it up in the morning. Best part of winter camping is you don't have to worry about keeping your food cold....LOL

    It wasn't as expensive then as now, also we had a season pass, it was only $10.00 then. Now I have a senior lifetime pass, $80.00 for lifetime pass, gets you in all National parks and all federal recreation areas. A regular yearly pass that includes all National Parks federal recreation area is $80, if you visit 3 parks in a year it has paid for itself. Pass gets you and everyone in the vehicle in.
