Visiting National Parks in the USA

National parks in the United States are great and unique places – incredible landscape, crazy geology, wild life… There are more than 50 all over the country.

The first one that was established:  Yellowstone, Wyoming, in 1872. All the parks after this one were created in order to preserve what make them so unique. We had the chance to visit some of them: click on the pics to see the articles!
