6 Gorgeous National Parks To Visit

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

This park is filled with vine cactus that burst into crimson flowers during the spring. The temperatures are more bearable and is ideal for rock climbing and camping.

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK

The spring time begins the peak waterfall season here where even the smallest creeks gush water.  Mirror Lake fills to the brim, offering a stunning reflection of Half Dome that can’t be seen during drier times of the year.

GREAT SAND DUNES NATIONAL PARK

This 30 square miles of enormous sand dunes is a sight to see. You can hike it, sled or even snowboard down it. Spring is the best time, especially after a rainstorm as it gives the dunes more stability.

ARCHES NATIONAL PARK

Arches has the highest density of natural stone arches in the world which makes it a surreal experience. During spring the temperatures are mild and the views are beautiful as snow capped mountains can still be seen.

ZION NATIONAL PARK

This spot has cooler spring temperatures suitable for hiking along its many exposed trails. It boasts spectacular high-volume waterfalls courtesy of the snow melt.

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK

Although Glacier can still be chilly in the spring, it means fewer visitors to this beautiful locale. In the spring, you’ll see more critters than people at Glacier, including bears, moose, elk, and sheep, so you can enjoy the wildlife.

    Yes we have been to Joshua Tree National Park, and it was memorable. We stayed one night in our rented camper, on our way from New Mexico to LA. I’m Aussie and back in Oz now, my wife a Californian. We saw a jackrabbit.

    Recently I read that some (not all) of the Parks have improved most areas for handicaps. Can you provide a list of those who have.
    Thanks

    Forty million vacationers already know about these, and they’ll be there with you if you visit in Summer…I’m keeping MY six a secret.

    Too much smoke in many of the western parks, making good photgraphy almost impossible. Visit before July and after September if you are a serious photographer.
