Mr.WhatsittoyaYellowstone is cool and all, but targhee national forest for sure! It will probably be less crowded too. The scenery is awesome here.

theabortionatorAlso Zion is sweet. Not that big and can do it in a day, 2 days if you want. There's some camping a couple miles back from the main entrance up a dirt road that was decent. Don't sleep on Bryce canyon. Not that big but far less crowded than others and one of my favorite places. If you smoke weed or eat mushrooms, fairyland loop is pretty chill. I mean it's pretty friggin chill regardless.
Road trips are everything
Professor-ModeloThanks g! Skateboard idea is huge I never thought about that. Also thanks for the fairyland Rec will definitely be housing some boomers and wandering around there for a while
OldManAtABasinSkip the national parks and find BLM and National Forest lands surrounding them to spend your time. You'll have a much better time.

theabortionatorYeah man! There are sooooo many skateparks. I hit 31 or something on my last road trip. Don't get too fried in the parks where you can't function or anything. Just a cool hike. Pretty mellow but cool features. Bryce usually isn't that crowded.
Meh, there's a reason some of them are nat parks. There's a bunch of stuff in nat parks that you really can't find other places.
Sometimes the other spots go under the radar but saying the nat parks stull have some great hikes. If people haven't been to some of the good one's they def should still.
I'll prolly never go back to Zion because i hate permits and it was more crowded than i liked 5 or 6 years ago when i was there. Would still recommend it because it has some killer views.
I think it ends up being the "don't go to ski resorts, earn your turns, way better" debate. You can do both.
