Dream Destinations: US National Parks

I was 12 years old when I first came here in America. We were on our summer vacation-that would be around March in the Philippines. My uncle took my brothers and I to our first camping trip (somewhere between Nevada and Arizona) which I still pretty much remember up to this day. My aunt would always remind me to keep my snacks hidden or else a bear would come sneak up on me at night. That really terrified me the entire night. She and my uncle more than made up for it though by taking us to some jaw-dropping places like the Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Zion. Now I’ve been to the Grand Canyon more than I care to remember, but I would love to go back with the kids this time. Below is a list of national parks I want to take my family to.

The Grand Canyon in Arizona – I want to come back here and actually stay for a day or two. Did you know that parts of the canyon might be tens of millions of years old but the canyon itself as a whole is only a few million years old, like 5 or 6? thought so.

Glacier National Park in Montana – I could have sworn this was in Switzerland. We better go soon because of climate change.

Crater Lake in Oregon – Is a caldera lake just like the one in Taal in the Philippines.

Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming – I would love to take my dad here. This park is known for its geothermal peculiarities and great ecosystem.

Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming – This is only 10 miles away from Yellowstone so this is definitely our second stop from the list (Yellowstone is first). Famous for its jagged peaks, the park has the same ecosystem as Yellowstone and is a very popular destination for mountaineering, hiking, and fishing.
