America's national parks are beloved treasures. They're time capsules of macro-scale history, invaluable containers of biodiversity, and emblems of the natural world's raw power. Though infinite numbers of miraculous things can be found in the nation's 61 national parks, here are eleven that you can't miss on your next road trip.

4. The General Sherman Tree, Sequoia National Park

This towering creature is the world's largest tree. It stands 275 feet tall, is over 36 feet wide, and it's the crown jewel of the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park. At somewhere between 2,000 to 2,500 years old, the tree has seen the rise of human civilization, and thankfully it's on protected land—so hopefully it will outlive the fall of mankind, too.
