  2. California: Yosemite, Sequoia, Death Valley, Channel Islands.  

  3. The Channel Islands – who knew? Hike, kayak, scuba dive, snorkel and more in California's least-explored national park.
  4. Sequoia's home to giants... of the tree variety, that is. It's also much less crowded than Yosemite, its neighbor to the north. 
  5. Ditch the crowds on your next Yosemite vacation and head to the High Country. 
  6. Why Death Valley...? Here's what makes this desert wonder worth a stop. 
  7. The West (beyond CA): Olympic, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Zion, Arches, Canyonlands.

  8. Pristine beaches, hot springs, rainforest hikes and postcard views: just a few reasons to visit this Northwest beauty. 
  9. Glacier National Park: in northwest Montana, it's a simply stunning park that relatively few visit. 
  10. Yellowstone's bison and geysers are a must-see, but so are Wyoming's Grand Tetons – and both offer plenty of ways to get off the beaten path.
