My top 5 would have to include

Denail rated ***** for the outdoor experience & opportunity to photograph 
wild animals

Isle Royale ***** for the raw northerrn outdoor experience (and to hear the 
wolves howl & have a moose stare you down in the fall)

Kenai Fjords **** for the water side of the outdoor experience

Rocky Mountain **** for the easily travelled mountain experience

Yosemite **** just because...
