Channel Islands National Park (NP #50), California

Channel Islands National Park (map / wiki) is the fourth national park I’ve had to access by ferry (the others being Dry Tortugas NP, Isle Royal NP, and Kenai Fjords NP). Anacapa Island, the nearest of the five islands within park boundaries, resides approximately 20 miles off the coast of Ventura California,

Bryce Canyon National Park (NP #44), Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park (map / wiki) is the most photogenic park in the system.   The night before I entered Bryce Canyon National Park I camped in Dixie National Forest. I advise that anyone looking for an alternative to paying $20 to camp in Bryce should head into Dixie NF.
