13 out of 58 ain't bad.

We've visited 30 of these sites and will be going to Alaska and North Dakota this summer so will get in six more! National Parks are the best!

33 for us. Looks like we need to get to Alaska!

32 here. Wow. I had never counted before. Better yet, I had the wonderful opportunity to live and work in three of them.

I've been to 39 of the 58 and every Park is a national treasure.

28, though if you count a visit to the Isle Royale visitor center in Houghton, Michigan, then it's 29.

29. Have never been to AK and haven't spent much time east of the Rockies.

29, without having been to AK or spending much time east of the Rockies.
