If you have never found yourself staring at dramatic rock and nature scenery or standing in the middle of the antelope canyon, then it is time to embark on a tour of the National Parks of the Southwest. Explore rocky canyon trails, multi-chromatic geysers and imposing mountain ranges, and marvel at a myriad of meteors showering the nightly sky.
Experience the last frontiers of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. Hike century-old trails of Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Each Park is truly awe-inspiring in its own way and many people may not realize just how diverse the United States is. Bison, bobcat, buffalo, cougar, and grizzly bear roam freely. Beaver, mink, raccoon, otter, bighorn sheep, mountain lion, mule and white-tailed deer, as well as more than 250 bird species, are waiting to be discovered.
Visiting the National Parks of America is not only a discovery of wildlife, but also a trip back in history. Relive the days of fearless first settlers, gold miners, trappers, and traders, who made their way west in rickety carriages or on horseback. Imagine joining their caravans, and rediscover mystical petroglyphs carved by Native American tribes roaming the plains. Discover the world of the Shoshone, Flathead, Navajo, Apache, Anasazi, and Paiute. In the 19th and early 20th century, the National Parks were officially protected, “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” This is the time, and the opportunity, to go back to humanity’s roots, and rediscover the natural beauty of the National Parks of America.
