Stunning National Park Photos

I stumbled across this Tumblr the other day, and I’m admittedly a bit obsessed with it. Run by the U.S. Department of the Interior, “America’s Great Outdoors” is just what it claims to be—gorgeous photos (and gifs!) of our national parks. (Also, how funny that such a boring-sounding government entity runs such a fabulous Tumblr!)

It’s true that I often overlook U.S. destinations when I plan my “big trips,” each year. But these photos are a reminder that there are tons of truly amazing places within our own 50 states.

Like Hawaii’s Haleakala National Park

…and the Grand Canyon—love how it looks when filled with clouds! (When I was there, it was breathtaking, but boy, I would have liked to have seen that!)

Conjures up some stateside wanderlust, huh?

  1. I’ve only been to a handful of the national parks in the USA and found them engagingly photogenic. I love the story that photography also helped create a convincing argument as to why Yellowstone should become a national park.
