My Parks Experiences

By Mona Leitner
August 30, 2013

Some of my happiest childhood memories are of my family's trips to many of our National Parks. I remember being awed by the incredible beauty and geologic diversity of Yellowstone, Glacier, and the Grand Canyon Parks. I still remember the kindness of a Park Ranger who educated me about why it wasn't healthy to feed junk food to bears--for the bears as well as for me. I remember standing on the peak of a mountain in the Rockies and feeling humbled by the overwhelming majesty of the vista. These memories are priceless. The Parks are national treasures set aside for all of us to enjoy and we need to support, protect, and actively preserve them for future generations.
