Today marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service (and if you haven’t seen Ken Burns’ documentary about the history of the NPS, it’s an incredible experience and as the title suggests, it is America’s Best Idea).
I remember my first trip to Yosemite National Park and driving in with my mom in our beaten-up Ford station wagon. It was a great experience. I had similar chills in some of my visits to other NP locales like Kings Canyon, Yellowstone and other National Park Service locales like Civil War battlefields, museums and monuments. I thought I’d share a few pics from some of my experiences with the NPS.
