Quiz: How many national parks have you visited?

Where have you been?

The National Park Service manages 59 full-fledged national parks and 350-some seashores, recreation areas, historic monuments and other units. Naturally, some travelers have made it their mission to visit all 59 parks (or even all 400+ NPS units, but we're not going there).

Maybe you're in the 59 club. Probably you aren't. In fact, if you've been to half of these places, you've out-parked our staff travel writer. But maybe you're nowhere close to that. If you start counting now, at least you'll know.
