Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park’s signature eerie landscape results from repeated freezes and thaws eroding soft sandstone and limestone over millions of years, creating bizarre organic formations. The resulting hoodoos, irregular monoliths of rock, are curious and captivating geological wonders. Plus, the ultra-dark night skies here offer superb stargazing.

Bryce Canyon National Park Tours

Bryce has the largest concentration of hoodoos on earth, with a fairytale landscape of rock cathedrals and hideaways in gorgeous shades of red, pink, orange, and gold. Look for bristlecone pine trees, the longest living tree on earth.

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Few places are more awe-inspiring than the Grand Canyon, one of the world's seven natural wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Watch the sun set or rise over this mile-deep canyon, igniting its walls of red and ochre into a mesmerizing tableau. The corrugated canyon walls tell a story that grows more ancient as they descend. The oldest rocks, formed almost two billion years ago, were uncovered as the mighty Colorado River carved a gorge starting 5-6 million years ago. The uppermost rock layer, Kaibab limestone, was formed at the bottom of the sea - learn how it traveled to its present elevation of 9,000 feet. Animals here include elk, grey foxes, bobcats, mountain lions, bighorn sheep, javelina, and Gila monsters.

History of the USA National Park System

The National Park system was launched when Congress established Yellowstone National Park in the Territories of Wyoming and Montana. Since this preceded statehood for both territories, they were placed under federal management within the Department of the Interior.

In subsequent years, the government protected many more areas, many of which were also in federal land. The system was piecemeal: designations included National Parks, National Monuments, Historic Monuments, Natural Areas, and Historic Areas. The administration was spread among the Department of the Interior, the War Department, and the Forest Service within the Department of Agriculture.

By 1916, there were 35 national parks and monuments managed by the Department of the Interior. That year, President Woodrow Wilson established the National Park Service to protect and administer these and future national parks.

However, there was still some confusion as no single agency provided unified management of the varied federal parklands. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order consolidating all National Parks and National Monuments, National Military Parks, National Cemeteries, National Memorials, and National Capital Parks into a single National Park System. Today a single system embraces places of scenic, natural, historic, and scientific importance.

The National Park System administers 419 parks! Today’s National Park system includes such diverse properties as Buck Island National Monument, which is largely underwater; the Manhattan Project National Historical Park commemorating the atomic bomb, with locations in Tennessee, Washington, and New Mexico; and such historic landmarks as Alcatraz Island, part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. There are even parks in Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Saipan, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
