Misc. National Park News:
No need to be a hiker to explore nation's parks
We took our first big camping trip as a family of three to Yosemite National Park when our daughter, Alexis, was 5. We had looked longingly at Ansel Adams' photographic essays and had read about the natural wonders of giant trees, ancient rock formations and enticing hikes and rock climbs. The natural beauty, the fresh air, the pristine streams and the wonder we felt made us realize how important it was to experience as much of the grandeur of the United States as we could. For years after that trip we made a point of visiting both national and state parks all over the country.
