I Love National Parks, Don't You?

My husband and I love National Parks. Before we were married, we spent several Christmases in Yosemite. We got engaged at the Grand Canyon at the beginning of a road trip across the Southwest where we visited Zion, Arches and Goblin Valley (a very cool State Park). We visited the Channel Islands during our honeymoon, and camped and kayaked there for a couple nights to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. On our wish list of parks to visit next are Acadia, Redwood and Hawai'i Volcanoes.
As you can imagine, I'm super excited about Ken Burns' new documentary, The National Parks: America's Best Idea, premiering on PBS September 27th (our wedding anniversary!). You can watch a video of Ken Burns talking about the series on Backpacker.com.
The Sierra Club will provide you with a free one-hour sneak-peak DVD if you host a house party to screen the series for your friends on Sunday, September 20th. (The deadline to sign up is September 13).
What are your favorite National Parks?
