Happy Birthday National Park Service!

So, today the National Park Service turns 100 years young!  I’ve been trying to think about what I want to write in the park service’s birthday card, and the right words are tough to come by.  So I’ll keep it simple.

I love you National Parks!

In celebration of that love, my favorite picture from each park I’ve been lucky enough to visit.  Because the national parks can make even a hack like me look like a competent photographer.
