    Not going to lie I was surprised that Yosemite Redwood Olympic and Teton weren’t on here although it does seem like a very well comprised list

  2. BroLetsDigin ASMR on September 11, 2022 at 5:47 am

    Wow, where is Yosemite National Park?

  3. George Basila on September 11, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Who is going to believe your video, Saguaro National Park comes before the Grand Canyon, and no mention to Yosemite. No credibility to your opinion.

  4. Tonya on September 11, 2022 at 5:48 am

    This is by far my FAVORITE video! Hubby and I are binge watching. We’re in the market for a LTV Wonder rl….you two are our role models! Thank you so much for sharing your journey. We have questions and plan to join a Q&A soon.

  5. 여행복 Traveliss on September 11, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Thank you for your wonderful video & explanation.

  6. Linda Kincaid on September 11, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Glacier is my favorite.

  7. J B on September 11, 2022 at 5:50 am

    We love Glacier.

  8. CM4K STEM on September 11, 2022 at 5:52 am

    This is fabulous work and beautiful scenery. That being said, this is THEIR favorite list of national parks, not a list of YOUR favorite national parks. Also, when any of us post such beautiful scenery with sincere intent, it is always best to check the provenance of the photos. Several viewers point out that some photos depicted herein as being in one national park, are actually in another. Although some would say that this is a trivial point, people will notice, as can be read in the comments.

  9. A A on September 11, 2022 at 5:55 am

    Olympic and Yosemite are missing ! But great video regardless. 🙂

  10. M. Entera on September 11, 2022 at 5:55 am

    Where’s Yosemite? It’s the most popular.

  11. Pablo Cortes on September 11, 2022 at 5:56 am

    Great video,thnx for sharing!

  12. xsig85 on September 11, 2022 at 6:02 am

    Their description of the parks made this video spectacular. Love their great vocabularies. Vloggers nowadays should watch and learn from them. A new fan here 🙋🏻‍♀️

  13. Tomas Ashenafi on September 11, 2022 at 6:02 am

    0:20 turn the captions on. Lol

  14. Joel Penhallegon on September 11, 2022 at 6:03 am

    On Tuesday, 17 Sep 19, I leave on vacation. Destination: Yellowstone National Park. I plan on visiting Grand Teton NP too.

  15. Bill Sprague on September 11, 2022 at 6:04 am

    Spot on with your list! TR’s name should be chiseled in the rocks of every one! Thanks Teddy! And Jennifer and Mike! The windshield of the Sprinter is the best big screen there is!

  16. Eye Wonder on September 11, 2022 at 6:06 am

    Beautiful video! Thank you!

  17. KistelsChrind on September 11, 2022 at 6:10 am

    You guys have class, I like this video very much!

  18. HusbandnWifeDuo on September 11, 2022 at 6:10 am

    Love from Canada! We are Canadian citizens and love our country, but have lived in the US for many years in the 80s and 90s. We have visited many parks in Canada, especially in Quebec, but we think that US parks are most diversified in the world. We would love to visit at least Smokey Mountains NP, Yosemite, Yellowstone, and may be couple of less visited national parks. However, we may be in trouble visiting parks in the southwest due to warm climate.

  19. midgic egg on September 11, 2022 at 6:10 am

    Thanks for uploading this beautiful video.

  20. ricardo the magnificent on September 11, 2022 at 6:12 am

    This is almost like trying to name your ten most favorite movies of all time. No matter which ones you include you think of others to put on the list.

  21. Nml45 on September 11, 2022 at 6:12 am

    Great video, very professional, unlike some others who’ve tried what you do. Now if you meant the entire west, then I must dispute not including Yosemite, but maybe you consider parks along the west coast as another category.

  22. David Andrew on September 11, 2022 at 6:12 am

    I have been to half of them, intend to add more next year.

  23. Skyclub on September 11, 2022 at 6:14 am

    What??!!! How could you missed YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK with its gorgeous mountains, waterfalls and trails? Some of the parks that was on your list pale in comparison to YNP.

  24. Jerry Peterson on September 11, 2022 at 6:14 am

    Yosemite should be on the list it should be top 1 or 2

  25. Bas Uittenbroek on September 11, 2022 at 6:18 am

    The thing I don’t understand, is how they get these drone images. I mean, drones are strictly forbidden in almost all national parks. They are forbidden in Banff NP, so I don’t understand how these drone vids could be made there in this video.

  26. The International on September 11, 2022 at 6:19 am

    So none of the 9 California parks made the list but Saguaro did? Interesting…

  27. Mac Mayer on September 11, 2022 at 6:20 am

    Y’all need to chill with the adds

  28. Jen Maclean on September 11, 2022 at 6:20 am

    Mesa Verde ❤️❤️❤️

  29. Chaynika Saikia on September 11, 2022 at 6:20 am

    Cute couple.. hope you continue to explore the world together <3 much love to both of you

  30. mortalia on September 11, 2022 at 6:23 am

    Banff (Beautiful, but not a US National Park,) but no Yosemite? …ok

  31. Kathleen Starosciak on September 11, 2022 at 6:25 am

    What do you do with your fur baby when you’re out hiking?

  32. Brenda Blom on September 11, 2022 at 6:26 am

    As this is supposed to be "RV lifestyle ", you didn’t mention anything about campgrounds in or around the parks. We are looking to go traveling in our camper within the next couple of weeks but don’t want to go to places where there is no place to stay. Please include this information in future videos.

  33. Matthew C on September 11, 2022 at 6:27 am

    Great video!

  34. Mickster on September 11, 2022 at 6:27 am

    you just can’t beat Yellowstone. and thanks for the info about dog friendly trails!

  35. Sandy Workman on September 11, 2022 at 6:28 am

    I live 30 miles from Zion and its just breathtaking. Everyone should experience the Narrows.

  36. Smiley Stevie on September 11, 2022 at 6:28 am

    Great video of top 10 national parks of the west. Thanks.

  37. Paul Yuen on September 11, 2022 at 6:30 am

    Visiting national parks as long as you like and leave all the worries behind is still a luxury to me and my wife but this will happen in the next few years when both of us retire. Thanks for sharing!

  38. Susan Taylor on September 11, 2022 at 6:30 am

    We love know best North Carolina

  39. Rona on September 11, 2022 at 6:30 am

    Wished your videos tell when the best months to travel and if pet friendly…

  40. See National Parks on September 11, 2022 at 6:33 am

    Gotta get me that RV

  41. Fun Kids on September 11, 2022 at 6:35 am

    Some day i will visit those parks. Its my dream. Regards from Poland

  42. Patty Harris on September 11, 2022 at 6:36 am

    Thank you! Love your script! So descriptive.

  43. vandal nonesuch on September 11, 2022 at 6:37 am

    Most impressive video, and all your choices are excellent! I would hope that your future videos will include parks like Olympic, Crater Lake. Channel Islands, Sequoia/Kings Canyon. Redwood, Big Bend,, Great Basin and Guadalupe Mountains among others), cause all of them are worthy! I won’t mention all the Alaska parks, because they are an order of magnitude in effort, just in the travel!!!

  44. JP on September 11, 2022 at 6:37 am

    Yellowstone is the greatest place on Earth, period.

  45. Reiko Myles on September 11, 2022 at 6:37 am

    I am truly awe inspired and humbled to behold the power, wonderment, and pageantry of God’s glorious creations. I thank you both for taking the time to share such magnificent beauty to the world. May God continue bless you both. Be safe and of course enjoy.

  46. CaliTrekk on September 11, 2022 at 6:40 am

    I’m looking forward to visiting several of these Parks in late November. Should i avoid any of them during this time(weather, dangerous, ect..)?

  47. HiiRoZz on September 11, 2022 at 6:40 am
