Here's a good, short, list of all of them.

Since before our RV trip, I think the only ones I visited were Haleakala and the Grand Canyon (and we never saw the Canyon from the rim, but did see the entire ~180 miles from a raft on the Colorado river). Most of our traveling was international. But over the next 3 years, I expect we'll hit 50 or so of the 58. Weeeeeee!

True enough and the bigger, older ones open sedans and vans now too.

In my backpacking trips, I always used to simply store my food in a sack that I would hang from a high branch. These day, I often use a bear canister for my food. Adds a little weight, but seems worth it in some parks.

Amazingly, there is a bear in the Adirondacks who has learned to open the allegedly bear-proof canisters. Let's hope she doesn't pass on her skill to too many relatives!

Big Bend is still my #1 NP.

OMG, now I've got to start another bucket list to accomodate all of those parks listed.
