Paying a visit to one US National Park is completely worth your time and effort.

(versión en español abajo) National Parks were born on the idea of nature conservation and the preservation of unique ecosystems. National Parks have fulfilled their goals remarkably well through the course of their existence and they are indeed a source of national pride and unending joy for visitors. My family and I have enjoyed some amazing US national parks including the Great Smoky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Arches, Capitol Reefs, Hot Springs, Rocky Mountains and Joshua Tree. Each and every one of these trips was totally worth our time. A visit to one US National Parks is a relatively inexpensive proposition too, full of educational opportunities and guaranteed nature awesomeness. Thus, when narrow minded politicians want to eagerly cut National Parks budgets, our support to this institution needs to be strengthened and renewed. Our elected officials need to know when they take steps in the wrong directions *

Los Parques Nacionales nacen bajo la función de conservar la naturaleza y preservar ecosistemas muy especiales. Este objetivo de los Parques Nacionales de EEUU ha sido cumplido a cabalidad en todos estos años y los parques en cuestión son, ciertamente, motivo de orgullo nacional amén de ser también fuente de admirción e inspiración para los visitantes. Nuestro paseo por Parques Nacinales nos ha llevado al Great Smoky Mountains, el Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Arches, Capitol Reefs, Hot Springs, las Montañas Rocallosas y el Joshua Tree. Cada uno de estos viajes ha valido la pena completamente, sin desperdicio. Una visita a un Parque Nacional es una proposición no muy costosa y llena de oportunidades educacionales en el medio de una naturaleza asombrosa. Cuando los políticos de turno se muestran tan dispuestos a recortar el presupuesto de los Parques Nacionales, nuestro apoyo a esta institución debe fortalecerse y renovarse. Los políticos de turno deben entender que mermar recursos a los Parques Nacionales es un paso en la dirección equivocada *
