The United States is home to 63 stunning national parks spread over 30 states. The oldest, Yellowstone National Park, was created by Ulysses S. Grant in 1872. The most recent addition, New River Gorge National Park and Preserve, located in West Virginia, joined the club in December 2020. Each of the 60-plus parks offers uniquely awe-inspiring wild places. Individually and collectively, they represent the best of America’s natural beauty, and offer visitors both a place for spiritual renewal and the chance to get lost in the splendor of the great outdoors. Even when we can't visit the parks in person, we can still enjoy stunning photos of them from afar.
