When you think of North America's most iconic travel destinations, what first comes to mind? Florida's white-sand beaches? Yellowstone National Park? Highway 1 and California's Golden Coast? Hawaii? Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard? One of the great American metropolises--New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago? Perhaps, a charming historical destination such as Quebec or New Orleans?
If you are like most people, the Southwest National Parks are probably not the first destination that comes to mind. For whatever reason, the Southwest National Parks are often lost in the conversation of premier, American travel destinations. But to the people that have seen the splendor of the red-rock mountains, winding canyons, and rugged terrain of the Ole' Wild West, the National Parks of the Southwest are simply unforgettable.
