Old Faithful Geyser, Yellowstone National Park – July 2013

The world’s first national park turns 143 today.
On March 1, 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant signed a congressional act setting aside a “certain tract of land lying near the headwaters of the Yellowstone River” to be preserved as a “public park or pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.”
There are now 59 national parks in the United States, and over 6,500 worldwide – go enjoy them!
