100 Years of National Parks

The National Parks Service is turning 100 years old today. That’s reason enough to list the National Park sites I have visited so far:

 

Florida:

 

Everglades

Visiting the Everglades was not only a welcome break during a brutal winter several years ago, it was especially fruitful for this wildlife photographer because I attended a bird photo workshop. Among the wildlife we saw were great blue heron, tricolored heron, wood stork, green heron, anhinga, alligator, great egret, black vulture.

 

Pennsylvania:

 

Fort Necessity

Independence

Oil Region

Valley Forge

 

New York:

 

Niagara Falls

 

Missouri:

 

Jefferson (Gateway Arch)

 

Ohio:

 

Cuyahoga Valley

 

Whether nature park, historic site, or industry museum, each site had its own unique quality.

 

Happy birthday, National Park Service!
