U.S. National Parks are a gift to the people. From the bacteria that color the geysers in Yellowstone, to the alien-like trees that dot the landscape at Joshua Tree to the 14000 feet Rocky Mountains that soar over Denver to the 105 mile Skyline Drive that follows the crest of the Blue Ridge in Shenandoah, the national parks offer some of the most diverse landscapes in the world.
In 1915, the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) was established. The park encompasses tens of mountains over 12000 ft, is home to hundreds of bird species and over 50 animals. There are three ecosystems within the park, and plant life thrives in all of them. The park is now one of the Top 5 most visited national parks in the US and is fun to through the year for different activities. There are plenty of benches to sit, reflect, and take your own personal oath to explore, learn and protect nature and everything that is around us. Getting high up in the Rocky Mountains is the most natural way to let go of all your worries, and see the earth for what it is. Beautiful.
