The Most Magical Park Yet

If this country was an iceberg, the national parks would represent the tip you see above the water. Bountiful photos of the parks attestย to the beautiful, diverse landscapes of the United States, but equally impressive are the landscapes in between. Still, our most recent park made me more grateful than ever for the protection efforts of those who came before us. Stepping into Glacier National Park in northwest Montana was like stepping into a fairytale. There was great mystery in the misty mountains and fields of wildflowers hugging the slopes. Words cannot fully express what we can only honor withย photos and our latest Centennial Poster.

  1. This is also the salamander capital of the world; the park harbors 30 species, giving it the planetโ€™s most diverse population. โ€œCatchingโ€ salamanders in the park is illegal. So the only safe way for kids to hunt for, capture, examine, and then return salamanders to their habitat unharmed is through a ranger- or naturalist-led programโ€”one of the many hands-on junior ranger and Smoky Mountain Field School opportunities available to kids in the park. Californiaโ€™s side-by-side, southern Sierra Nevada national parksโ€”Sequoia and Kings Canyonโ€”collectively are known as the โ€œland of giants.โ€

    1. Oh cool, I didn’t know that! Happy to hear there are guided programs to help kids, just another reason to appreciate the park efforts. We can’t wait to get out into the land of giants, this country has already shown us such beautiful diversity in landscape and species.
