Happy 99th National Park Service! Discover 408 national parks
Today the National Park Service celebrates 99 years. Happy Birthday!
Did you know there are 408 national parks ? I’ve only been to about 25 of them in Arizona, Ohio, Texas, South Dakota, New York, California and Washington D.C.
I have a lot of discovering to do. As I look at the list of parks in every state, I keep thinking I need to see Mother nature’s beauty, and learn about the history behind each park. I can’t wait to explore more. Maybe I need to take a national park tour from one side of the country to the other and Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam and Virgin Islands. I’ll have to talk my husband into it.
Here are a few photos of National parks I have visited so far. As a reporter I’m curious all the time, and I love taking photo. Enjoy!
The Badlands in South Dakota
Montezuma Castle in Arizona
The Grand Canyon in Arizona
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington D.C.
Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
