Bad, But Pretty?   2 comments

On Friday, Yahoo! released a list of The Nation’s Worst National Parks.”  The National Park Service took some umbrage with any Park being designated “worst” … and released this photo response.

  1. I’d have to disagree about Death Valley. I guess if one is not a fan of the desert, then it wouldn’t look very ‘pretty’, but once you get out into the park and see places like Telescope Peak or Bad Water, the Charcoal Kilns, not to mention The Artist’s Palate, the park is amazingly beautiful.

    • Right there with you, John. Each of these Parks are unique, and that’s a key reason for them to have protected status. I agree that every Park can’t be as spectacular as Yellowstone or Yosemite … but trying to rank the worst Parks, or even the best Parks, is like comparing chocolate to puppies to Frank Sinatra.
