If you are a fan of the US National Parks, 2016 marks to 100th Anniversary of the NPS (National Park Service). Without these national treasures, visited by people worldwide, our planet would be a sorry place indeed.
“The Centennial will kick off a second century of stewardship of America’s national parks through recreation, conservation and historic preservation programs.” (Yosemite Guide 6/22-7/26, 2016)
August 25th is the official anniversary date! If you happen to be in Yosemite, there will be activities and events commemorating the event. Visit Yosemite Guide online for more information.
What makes this a “cherry on top” moment is the mere fact that National Parks are vitally important to our heritage as Americans. The flag in the photo is a symbol of America and its positive influence on society.
My love for the national parks and Yosemite, in particular, can be attributed to this man, my dad! His “cherry on top” moment was not only catching this fish in the Dana Fork of the Tuolumne River in Tuolumne Meadows, but celebrating his 80th birthday here!
Without his love for the outdoors and our summer vacations to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, our family would not have been exposed to camping, recreation and the need to be present in nature.
I would love to hear about any visits you might have made to a National Park this year.
Thank you for visiting today!
