National Parks Free Today


      Every Veterans Day the national parks are free of admission for one day.  This past September I had a chance to visit some of the most popular parks.  Above is the sunset at the Grand Canyon.  This is something that should be on everyone's bucket list.


    We are fortunate to have the range of natural beauty in our Country.  We can thank those who in the past had the forethought to recognize that this beauty was worth preserving.


        The waterfalls of Yellowstone are so numerous that they are still finding ones that were unknown until recently.


    The boiling springs of Yellowstone are a result of the heated underground water by volcanic energy.
   
 
     The grandeur of Zion National Park is something that a picture can't capture.



     Nowhere is the beauty of sandstone and limestone more evident then at Bryce Canyon.



   Finally Yosemite is one of the first national parks and has some of the most impressive views.

   I hope that today's blog has encouraged you to explore our national parks and to not forget that while not as impressive we have some natural beauty in our very own neighborhood.




P.S.
   Thanks to Harry Schwarz we learn of a national park in our area that we not have realized.

Great photos and great sentiment. Of course this is the whole purpose of my second book - Saving The Places We Love.
