Everyone knows about the Grand Canyon, Arches and Yosemite. Here are some lesser known parks that are worth a stop on your next road trip. (Please add suggestions, I'd love to hear about your favorite spots too)
  1. Goblin Valley, UT
    This is probably my favorite place in America. A giant valley full of these crazy rock formations called Hoodoos. No trails, just right.
  2. Maroon Bells, CO
    Super dope
  3. Mesa Verde, CO
    Wander through these amazing cliff dwellings from the ancestral Pueblo people.
  4. Pictured Rocks, MI
    If you ever make it up to Michigan's upper peninsula, you have to stop at this pristine beach on Lake Superior.
  5. White Sands National Monument, NM
    Guess what color the sand is
  6. Olympic National Park, WA
    This one is fairly popular but still worth a mention.
  7. Alaska
    Just the whole state
  8. Natural Bridges National Monument, UT
    3 cool and unique bridges you can hike to and under (and learn about how bridges are different than arches), plus it's a dark sky park and surrounding area, so you can see about 1 babillion stars and the Milky Way at night.

    Breathtaking views (name is very descriptive), outstanding and varied hikes.
