Discover America’s beautiful National Parks

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows, spectacular skies and serene lakes. It has enough lush forests, flowered fields, and sandy beaches. It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.” Michael Josephson

  1. So true. There are so many beautiful places to visit and equally as important is to give praise and thanks to all in hopes they too will visit and pass the message along like you do.

      I hope more people will pass the message along as a social worker, I know plenty of young adults and families who have never been to the National parks because of the cost alone.

      • Amen. Parks should be free for all to enjoy. I sometimes do not know how young families can afford to bring their children to parks and museums and other places of cultural enrichment due to admission fees. There is such great joy in seeing that young family in line at the theater and approaching the father to ask permission if you but their tickets.

        In my state we have first Friday each month and all the museums are free, the library also gives away passes to the zoo , and in summer many of the neighborhoods host free movies in the park. So, we’re a large village trying to enrich and entertaining the children😉
