Which National Parks Are You Planning on Visiting in 2022?

A new year means new park adventures. New park adventures means being able to check off some more of the the 63 National Parks (check out our popular poster!)

Comment below with the National Parks you're planning on visiting. We want to hear from you 📣

And since we're asking you, it's only fair that we share our list. So without further ado.... 

7 National Parks That We're Planning on Visiting in 2022

Some background info on how / why we chose the below parks. These were the parks we were planning on visiting in 2020 (but didn't make it for obvious reasons). The loop would likely start in Denver, Albuquerque, or El Paso, with stops at select state parks and other outdoor attractions.

That being said, here's our list in (most likely) the order we'd visit...

1) Big Bend National Park

2) Guadalupe Mountains National Park

3) Carlsbad Caverns National Park

4) White Sands National Park

5) Mesa Verde National Park

6) Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

7) Great Sand Dunes National Park

That's our list!

  • We just went to Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, The Arches and canyon Land the first week of November. It was snowing when we were at Zion and the ground was covered with snow at Bryce Canyon. It was the best vacation ever! Beautiful!!

  • The goal is to visit Glacier next year. We had to postpone our Montana trip this year.

  • I have been to all the parks you are planning to see with Big Bend my favorite. Been twice. You have a great trip planned. We are planning on the Utah Parks Canyonland, Arches and more.
