Visiting a national park is such a wonderful experience.
When my daughter was younger, we would visit our local national park most weekends for a family hike.
The air is crisp and clear, and the smells of the forest are a welcome break from the busy hustle and bustle.
Sonja, from Seattle, Washington, works in an office but uses her weekends and time off to explore the outdoors.

Sidney is making her way through visiting all of the U.S. national parks. It sounds like a pretty amazing endeavor to me.

Missourians Elizabeth and Cole left their jobs to spend five days in each of the 59 national parks. I’m personally a little partial to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park as I live near it and have visited it many times.
