I love our parks!

By Mary Emmons

I love nature, the outdoors, and wildlife. My parents and grandparents always took us kids to wonderful places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and more. I often hike the Cascades with my daughter now and enjoy every moment of our vast wilderness. I just had the opportunity to travel to La Push with my husband for our 10th anniversary and we hiked in to 1st, 2nd, 3rd beaches and also Rialto. We had the best time and can't believe that we had never travelled there before now. I did not realize they were national parks until I started gathering information on line. I love that you just pay a fee in the parking area and off you go to camp out right on the beach. Lucky for us it is not summer vacation yet, so we felt like we had the beach all to ourselves. I can't imagine what it would be like to not have our national parks. So this is how I came about wanting to help keep our parks open so we can all enjoy these wonderful places.
