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
    F23665be ea4d 489d 906a dcd7612a2a04
    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
    342818be 1c25 462d b8ac 9e13b348e918
    Super dope
  3. Mesa Verde, CO
    Ba9c4a9a cd9d 4856 9221 306c4ce0f511
    Wander through these amazing cliff dwellings from the ancestral Pueblo people.
  4. Pictured Rocks, MI
    C10920f5 79c2 4b3f ae00 50595f3e6079
    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
    11d0058b b6c6 41d7 8b44 d4db79c58a18
    Guess what color the sand is
  6. Olympic National Park, WA
    3c51f999 a8d4 4ea7 b387 3219a0446592
    This one is fairly popular but still worth a mention.
  7. Alaska
    58060d27 d878 43dd b47f 87c168e23131
    Just the whole state
  8. Natural Bridges National Monument, UT
    45fbc903 9eb9 4af1 833a 60f4d27a0573
    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.

  9. Canyonlands, Island in the Sky, UT
    3a206789 6fe0 40f5 80c0 6fc5d5108647
