My National Park Story by Diana Busby

At 50 years old, I finally had the chance to see the Grand Canyon. My first view brought tears to my eyes. The sight filled me with ah and wonder. I can only imagine what would happen if these places were not protected by the National Park Service. During the trip from Georgia to California, Montana and back through Tennessee, my husband and I also visit numerous other National Parks and Monuments: The Battlefield at Little Big Horn, Mount Rushmore, and the Badlands, to name a few. Each stop gave me a deeper appreciation for our nation's history and culture. I can't believe all that I had been missing. I hope to repeat the trip every other year or more. I have grandchildren that I want to take with me on future visits to these areas so that they will appreciate what others have done to preserve the history of our nation. Thank you,Diana Busby
