Joshua Tree National Park is where California’s high desert and low desert converges to create amazing views of rock formations, cactus gardens, wild flowers and deep blue skies. Hiking in the park is a feast for the senses. I know my colleague Lili Daniel enjoys visiting Joshua Tree too!

Channel Islands National Park, in Ventura county, provides a wide variety of recreational opportunities and a delightful break from the congestion and clamor of urban life. However, since the park encompasses five islands and their surrounding one mile of the ocean, the decision of where to go, what to do, and how to do it can be challenging.

I’ve taken the South Shore Train from downtown Chicago to go hiking on the sand dunes there a few times. On a clear day you can just barely make out the upper sections of Chicago’s tallest skyscrapers across the lake. (Sorry, Flat Earth-ers.)

Hey, Muir Woods is in my backyard in lovely Mill Valley! And don’t forget the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in San Francisco county. The GGNRA covers Alcatraz Island, Fort Point National Historic Site, Baker Beach, China Beach, Cliff House & Sutro Baths, Battery Chamberlin, Crissy Field Marsh & Beach and Airfield and center, Fort Funston, Fort Mason, Lands End, Presidio of San Francisco, Ocean Beach, and more. You do have to pay to access some of the areas, so Saturday’s fee-free day is an opportunity to save. And count me in as a fan of the state parks as well!

Diane’s choice shows how history is all around us in the San Francisco Bay, but this national historic park along the waterfront in Richmond is a must for fans of WWII and women’s history. Built on the site of the Ford Motor Company Assembly plant, it honors the estimated 18 million women who joined defense and support industries during the war including former “Rosie” Betty Reid Soskin who, at 94, is the oldest ranger in the National Park System. Visit the Park and then tour the USS Potomac followed by the SS Red Oak Victory Ship—their next pancake breakfast is coming up in May!

It’s unanimous. The mighty Yosemite National Park is nearly 1,200 square miles of waterfalls, meadows, ancient sequoias, and much more. Everyone on the One Legal team seconded Stephanie’s motion that this is an awesome national park.
