National Parks: Roads Less Traveled

Quick -- name the first three National Parks that come into your head.




If you said, "Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon," or even two out of those three, with, perhaps a Teton or a Bryce or a Glacier in the mix, raise your hand.

OK, arms down. Good answers, great places!

But there are hundreds of other extremely cool National Parks and sites that would love to be on your list. Read about some of them in one of my recent monthly family travel columns, "National Parks: Small is Beautiful." (And forgive the italics; not mine...)
