Reader Participation Day: Given A Choice, Which State Would You Visit To Tour Its National Parks?
If you could visit only one state to tour its national parks, which state would it be?
Would you head to Utah with its five "national parks," to California with its eight "national parks" and handful of other designated park units, or choose Maine with its one national park (Acadia), a stretch of Appalachian National Scenic Trail, and lone international historic site?
Does quantity overrule quality? (Of course, quality is in the eye of the beholder...) Would you be in bliss just to travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands and sit on the beach at Virgin Islands National Park, or would you prefer to head to a state to tick off as many park units as possible?
