Enjoyed the heck out of the Gila Cliff dwellings in New Mexico. For those driving a RV or trailer...God Bless you and good luck..

Between that and the Grand Canyon...Grand Canyon pulls me but I tell you Gila was something neat.

I would vote for Yosemite as my favorite. I also like Mt. Lassen which nobody has mentioned. My first time there was 2 years ago. We hiked to the top of Mt Lassen it is about a five mile around trip with a 2,000 feet elevation gain. When we got to the top a Dutch guy was there with a mini-keg of Dutch beer. He shared it with those of us who packed a lunch to have on the peak. It was sure a lot better than the water we brought. Lassen is a beautiful park that is not that well known and not as crowded as others. Here is a link to some pictures.

Hey Lassen was great! We did the trail up through the sulfur.Didn't spend a great deal of time since we were cutting over to hit the coast. So memorable! We cut over from there. Went through I still forgot the route across country. Needless to say we ran into a gully with basically no cell connection or cb. Ended up hitting a huge rock that plopped right in the middle of the road. So a Cal Trans guy with a plow stopped to help us. He was there to clear off the rocks from the slides. I changed the tire to the spare. We had to drive all the way back about 20 miles to a small town and buy a new tire. Good folks got us on the way quick. Real interesting drive from Lassen to the west part of CA

Those little trip ups make a good adventure.
