Adventure awaits — Exploring the national parks

Once you're bitten by the travel bug, it's difficult to shake the insatiable desire for adventure. You become infected with a bad case of wanderlust, and the symptoms include a wandering mind that often takes you to distant lands, itchy feet that refuse to stay in one place, and the burning flames of jealousy that secretly overtake you every time you see photos of your friends' most recent excursions.

As a victim of wanderlust, I realize that the list of places I want to go is extensive. Thankfully, summer is approaching fast, and with that comes new opportunities to travel and explore. This year I hope to cross a few national parks off my list!

It's my lofty goal to visit each and every one of them in my lifetime. So far I've only experienced five. Clearly, I have work to do!

What national parks do you think should be included on this list?
