EVERY NATIONAL PARK HAS A STORY TO TELL
National Park Week runs April 15 through 23. Throughout the country, hundreds of programs and events will encourage visitors to explore new places and enjoy new experiences. More information is available at www.nationalparkweek.org.
“There are 417 national parks, and each one has a story to tell,” Michael T. Reynolds, acting director of the NPS, said in a statement. “There are endless options during National Park Week to discover someplace or something out of the ordinary. Whether one seeks relaxation, exhilaration or inspiration, there is something for everyone in a national park.
The beautiful photos of Bryce Canyon and the Hoodoos were sent to us by GigSky customer Bill Thompson.
Bryce Canyon is a geological amphitheater on the Paunsaugunt Plateau with hundreds of tall, multicolored sandstone hoodoos formed by erosion and ice. The region was originally settled by Native Americans and later by Mormon pioneers. Learn More
