Your welcome!

I knew a girl who was a HUUUUGE Robert Earl Keen fan.. So, I "had" to listen to a lot of his music for a while.. Some of it is still nice to listen to.

Isle Royale Nat'l park in da' UP (the upper peninsula of Michigan) Only two ways to get there, 1 is by boat and the other is by seaplane. Bicycles are allowed in certain parts, everything else is hiking only. Only facilities are a hotel / cabins at the seaport. At one point it was the most studied wolf / moose interaction population in the world.


Outside of that I really like the North Cascades Nat'l park in NW Washington state. I do however share the sentiment that state / national forests are more enjoyable though. I spent the weekend hiking / camping in the wenatchee national forest where I was able to fly fish, gather mushrooms / berries / other wild edibles without fear of being fined thousands of dollars

I'm with Rally to an extent. I buy an annual parks pass but I'm not that happy with the way the parks are handled compared to state forests, at least in NSW. Having said that, Abercrombie and Kosciuszko would probably be my favourites despite not having explored either much.

Judging from photos I've seen on another forum I'd love to visit Kings Canyon park in California. The scenery is breath taking and looks ideal for camping wand walking.

Thats a great set of photo's you have there Darkanion
The pic of Delicate Arch is brilliant. The pic about halfway down day 9 really shows just how big, sorry I meant how huge it is
What else is there to say, other than nature & it surroundings is just truly amazing indeed

Thanks! When I do these road trips, people sometimes ask me why I don't go see people. For some reason, I have a much more relaxing time looking at nature and photographing it than I do going to visit people. So, I usually go see nature, instead!

Here's a video made by the same guy who did the Yellowstone vid at the beginning of this thread. The wildlife, as you can see have benefited greatly from the record snowfall this past year up there. I have never seen such FAT ELK in the park!
Looks like it was shot all around the park & on the trail ridge road. Great quality vid with great shots, once again.

Mine is the Alpine National Park in eastern Victoria. Victoria's largest non-arid park which would not have existed but for the 'Greenies' - much to the chagrin of logging companies and local cattle farmers.
I think that, with increasing population and limited park capacity, it is inevitable that major parks will become more regulated, while state forests do offer the opportunity for less regimented use. I love being able to just drive / ride my pushbike until dusk, then pitch camp without a 'beg your pardon'.

What a great vid And what a fantastic part of the world it is
Yes I see what you mean by the ELK, they look like they are in tip top condition, thats for sure
At around the 45 sec mark, the look on the kids face, when the squirrel walks up to him on the rock wall is fantastic
What a magic moment
