Reader Participation Day: Visit Wyoming's National Parks, or Those in Washington State?
It was quite a battle last week when we asked whether you would rather visit Utah's national parks or those in California.
Well, here's another head-scratcher: Would you first head to Wyoming and Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, or Washington State with Olympic, North Cascades, and Mount Rainier national parks?
Some might say this is a no-brainer, that you have to see the world's first national park -- Yellowstone. But ... the parks in Washington state are no slouches. Heck, I consider Olympic National Park to be three parks in one: You've got the beaches and Pacific Ocean, the temperate rainforests, and the high country, complete with glaciers. And Mount Rainier and North Cascades offer some incredibly beautiful, and rugged, landscapes.
