Americans have always valued the wide-open expanses of their wilderness, which likely explains why the concept of national parks started in the United States in the late 19th Century with Yellowstone National Park becoming the world’s first. Since then, the network of national park and monument lands in the United States has grown to include 59 national parks and 117 national monuments.

Ranging from mountains to deserts, and including prairies, wetlands, seashores, and even active volcanoes, America’s national parks include a stunning array of beautiful scenery. But out of all of the views in America’s public lands, some stand out as being even more beautiful and breathtaking than the others.

Sometimes, somehow, a vacation can seem like work. Packing, closing the house, stopping the mail and a host of other chores requires a certain amount of fortitude. I had to work up to the day before I left, but did manage to get a few things prepared. On this morning of my departure, though, I […]
