Shout-out for the Presidents (+ Tips for visiting a National Park)

This president’s day weekend, we wanted to give a quick shout out to all the Commanders-in-Chief who played a role in our National Parks system. From the establishment of the world’s first national park in 1872 by Ulysses S. Grant to unstoppable ecological efforts of Teddy Roosevelt and to every leader who stamped his name declaring a particular piece of land “For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People”. Here’s to you!

In celebration, here’s a photo of Teddy Roosevelt and a waterfall. Enjoy.

(PS if you’re planning on visiting one this weekend, check out our blog post “How to Visit a National Park on a National Holiday” for tips on staying sane in a crowded park)
