Introducing Yosemite National Park:
            "Yosemite National Park [California - 747,956 acres] offers an abundance of activities and sightseeing destinations. The Valley is a 7 mile wide canyon with incredible rock formations, including El Capitan, the world's tallest granite monolith and one of the world's top rock climbing destinations. Yosemite Falls is the largest waterfall in North America with breathtaking views. Peak visitation at the falls is in the spring as it is comprised entirely of melting snow. The park is also known for its Giant Sequoia trees, which are estimated to be over 3,000 years old."

Within Yellowstone's 2.2 million acres, visitors have unparalleled opportunities to observe wildlife in an intact ecosystem, explore geothermal areas that contain about half the world's active geysers, and view geologic wonders like the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River."

"With over 229 square-miles, more than 35 hiking trails, cliffs towering more than 2,000 feet above the canyon floor, and more species of plants than the Hawaiian Islands, Zion National Park is a pretty incredible place. It's an environment of magic and natural fascination that will challenge what you thought of nature's capabilities."

This is how we did it - true, even yellow, from PA - (except Hawaii obviously, but my uncle worked on a pineapple ship to get there 🙂), although my dad said the wind was bad crossing the Mississippi.

None,  do you think the US should have national parks?  I have friends that think our national parks are a total waste of tax payer money and should be sold off to businesses and individual landowners.  What is your view?

Why do your friends think this out of interest?

They despise much if the federal government as overreach, including the idea of national parks.  They would say the grand canyon is nice for Arizona, but no one in Alabama should have to pay a cent for it.  They feel most everything should be based on states, as mini countries.  They like only the idea of a national military.  That's why they object to a national abortion law or a national idea of segregation or any idea of national health care.  Not sure how they would feel if citizens from other states would want their healthcare from, say, Massachusetts with socialized health care.  Probably another Supreme Court constitution battle.  (interstate commerce, I think they call it)
