What is your favorite U.S. National Park.

On the poll, the parks will be listed from east to west (top to bottom).

Glacier National Park, in Montana, which I got a chance to see this summer.

It is the crown jewel of mountain scenery on the North American continent.

Other: which would be Isle Royale N.P. in Lake Superior. One of the least visited which makes it great.

I know there are some I'd like better if I've visited but I had the time of my life at Black Canyon on the Gunnison natl park. When you go to Glacier or Yellowstone, you expect to be blown away. I didn't have high expectations and just loved the color of the rocks. If I could post pictures, I would. Google it if you aren't familiar with it.

I face an interesting conundrum.

I voted for the Great Smoky Mountains. By far an incredible national park, but there are also several others that are top notch and in some ways better. However, they are so far away from population centers they aren't accessible.

The great Smokey Mountains are accessible to many of the populations centers in the Southeast within a days drive. I am sure the same thing exists elsewhere.

I'm not quite sure how to vote when considering beauty vs. accessibility/usability
