20 Photos of Beautiful National Parks

| November 7, 2014

I’ve been in love with the National Park Service since the mid-90’s, when I took my first road trip to Acadia National Park in Maine. Since then, I have visited at least 22 parks, as well as countless National Monuments and National Historic Parks and Sites.

Here are my 20 favorite photos taken at National Parks across America.
