Canada has pretty amazing National Parks beside Banff.

Including some of my favorites....

Glacier (yes, Canada has a Glacier National Park too. In BC's beautiful Selkirk Mtns.)
Yoho (includes many spectacular waterfalls, some with over 1,000 ft. drop)
Jasper (includes enormous Columbia Icefield)
Nahanni (fantastic unspoiled extremely rugged deep canyons in NWT)
Kluane (over 8,000 square miles adjacent to Alaska's Wrangell-St.Elias Parks)
Auyuittuq (Baffin Island featuring giant cliff faces of Mt. Thor and Asgard)
Waterton Lakes (adjoining Montana's Glacier NP)
Wood Buffalo (4 times the size of Yellowstone in NWT & northern Alberta)
Cape Breton Highlands (with very scenic Cabot Trail)
Gros Morne (deep fjords on west coast of Newfoundland)
Pacific Rim (on stunning west coast of Vancouver Island)
Grasslands (thousands of acres of badlands and short grass prairie in SW Saskatchewan)

USA.... Third largest country by land mass and every type of climate in the world, very diverse.
Canada and Switzerland are also amazing

seems like your biggest defense is saying how BIG the parks are which doesn't really matter much, what matters is the parks themselves. American wins this one...

nice images, but...
  • the third one you show is Banff (that's in Canada)
  • the fourth one is a Louisiana swamp, cool looking, but not a Nat'l Park
  • the suspended walkway while somewhat near the Grand Canyon is not in the Nat'l Park
  • I don't believe Niagara Falls are part of a Nat'l Park
  • Monument Valley is technically a Nat'l Monument

First, the third one is actually a mountain in California...second yes that swamp is in a national park in Louisiana called Jean Lafitte National park, third okay whatever the national park is the grand canyon, the suspended walkway in is the grand canyon but not in the national park . Also ummm I believe Niagara falls is in a national park...also I believe monument valley is in a national park too. Did you seriously just go through all my pictures and nitpick everything I did wrong? and thanks for the complement.

I was pretty certain on where all your pics were since I've actually been to them, but of course confirmed them which you may have want to have done.

Technically, Jean Lafitte is not a National Park

here's your third one, think you would have known it isn't in California given your screen name
Valley of the Ten Peaks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Niagara Falls is a State Park...Niagara Falls State Park | Official Site

might as well be accurate if you are going to represent the US of A

That part of China doesn't need national parks. Just ride through on the bus for the incredible scenery.
