Celebrate National Park Week

If you needed an excuse for a trip to the national parks, here it is.



If you haven't already, it's a fine time to dust off those hiking boots, lose some cell coverage and explore some of the most majestic places the United States has to offer. It's National Park Week, which means admission to all national parks will be free! To help you get excited, take a virtual tour of Zion guided by none other than the fantastic folks at More Than Just Parks. Walk up an ancient riverbed, watch the sun rise over mountains of red rock, take a stroll through a golden meadow and let this video be nothing more than an appetizer for a great year spent exploring your own backyard. Have a wonderful National Park Week!
