Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
Favorite National Park you have visited
So I live in the outdoors wasteland of the Mid-South which has only increased my appreciation for places with real natural beauty. As such I'm a National Parks nerd and plan to visit at minimum all the lower 48 US parks before I'm fiddy with the others coming after the kids are out of the house (not paying to fly three kids to American Samoa so I can check something off my bucket list, yes I am cheap and pore).
I love the American parks so much that I recently purchased this piece of nerdery for my office. The stickers are the 18 parks I've visited so far (Hot Springs is the most recent edition). Forgive the shitty pic, I clearly CARE about this shit butt not enough to go back and get you guys a better pic.
I plan on hitting three Florida parks in June and then the 9 Cali parks and a few others the following summer.
So which NP is your favorite and why? Feel free to wry tin your thoughts on others.

My dad is a bit a finicky guy I guess and we obsessed with bear spray the entire time we were there. He kept the bear spray canister in a holster thing around his waist. So we get this lake and I hear something that sounds like a gun shot. I turn around and my dad’s shorts are just covered in red. I thought he got shot because he was screaming in pain. Well it turns out my dad bent over to sit on a rock and somehow accidentally triggered the bear spray canister. It exploded all over his shorts and balls. I’ve never seen a man run faster into freezing cold water in my life. He had to hike the 5 miles back to our car, complaining the entire way of course. It got all over his junk, I can’t imagine how painfully that would be. He smelled of hot peppers for a week and had red spots all over his legs for 2 months. That’s my favorite family vacation by far. CSB.
I will say my first visit to the WY parks I was surprised how awesome the Tetons were since they get so little love compared to big brother up north.
Checked off the list...
Black Canyon of the Gunnison
So is most of the list. I've been everywhere man except Zion
No shame in taking Rainier, at all.
Race was there!
I think I've been to 4: Rainier, Olympic, Rocky Mountain there's at least 1 more. Rocky Mountain wins because my wife's cousin goes into the bathroom which is really just a permanent honey bucket (FREE PUB for Honey Bucket Butt Fuck! @DerekJohnson RIP @DeLarry) and proceeds to drop her cell phone in the toilet. She then comes out and asks the Park Ranger if there's a way to get it out. He just stared at her.
