We want to wish a happy birthday to the National Parks Service! For 100 years, it's worked to preserve our nation's most beautiful wild lands and keep people connected with the nature around us. It's hard to imagine what the world would be like today without the national parks system. Our national parks inspire us with their beauty, amaze us with their diversity and teach us with their complexity. They encourage us all to value nature and ensure that in an age of increasing urbanism, we can still witness the wonders of the natural world.
To celebrate, we're sharing just a few of our favorite photos from our trips to national parks. We hope you enjoy them! (Just click on the picture to scroll through them all.)
