The yellow moon moved lazily across the sky. Andres knew he only had a few moments to capture it, but for a moment we sat in silence and admired. This happened in Theodore Roosevelt NP, the 9th park along our journey to visit all 59.
We’ve now completed about 25% of our journey (14 parks), and in honor of the park service’s 100th anniversary this week, we collected 100 photos taken in 12 National Parks – from Kentucky to Montana and back – most never seen before. These are the images we take to inspire our Centennial Poster series, which is now up to 11 posters.
A ranger once told us if you visit 20 parks in this country, chances are you’ll get a good idea of what this country is all about. I couldn’t agree more. Not only has our 25% unveiled the baffling diversity in landscape, but it’s also shown us the diversity of people how populate these lands.
