Happy Birthday National Park Service

August 25, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Today marks the 100th birthday of the US National Park Service, so I put together a collection of my favorite pictures from many of the parks I have visited. I have been to a few parks before my photography hobby started, including the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Redwoods; unfortunately, I don't have any photographic record of those visits. We will be celebrating Park Service's birthday by visiting six parks by the end of the year, five of which we've never been to before.

 

I should point out that the National Park Service is responsible for more than just what we know as the National Parks. They operate and maintain national monuments, battlefields, military parks, historical parks, historic sites, lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas, scenic rivers and trails, and the White House--over 400 areas in the United States and territories.
