Photos: We’re missing these national parks

Most of the national parks are closed right now because of the COVID-19 crisis, but that hasn't stopped us from remembering them.

Last year, we crossed the country, racking up dozens of park stays. This year, we stayed in the West and enjoyed long stints at three beautiful and very different national parks: Yosemite, Redwood and Grand Canyon. Each was spectacular.

Now that they are closed, we can't help missing them and their majestic power. We can't wait until they reopen, whenever that can safely be done.

In the meantime, let's look back on some photo memories in this slideshow.
