North American National Parks

I have set a goal of visiting all 103 places with a National Park designation in the United States and Canada. 59 of which are in the US National Park system and 44 in Canada.

For the purposes of this project, I am only including parks which I have visited since March 2007, when I began my full time travels. Since 2007 I have visited 23 parks and prior to 2007 I visited an additional 5 parks.

Some parks are trivial to visit and it is just a matter getting in a car and driving. Some are extremely difficult to visit and require backcountry hiking to get to them.
