From the most known National Parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks, to the most unknown ones like Haek
From the most known National Parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite national parks, to the most unknown ones like Haekeala and Wind Cave national parks, the United States provides us with beauty unpredictable. This beauty is expressed to anyone, any age, through interactive programs.
At any National Park, there are many activities you can do with the whole family. The best one for kids age 5-12 is the Junior Ranger program. At any park, ask a ranger at the visitor center about the Junior Ranger program. They will hand you a booklet and tell you the programs they provide as a Ranger Program. Do a program, get a ranger’s signature, then complete the activities in the booklet. When you are finished, go to the visitor center desk. A ranger will go through your book and make sure everything is complete. They may ask you questions so you learn. The best part is that at the end, you earn a Junior Ranger badge.
You may want to extend your journey by taking a tour. Tours usually take you through what is being preserved. For example, if I was at Jewel Cave National Monument, I may get a tour of the cave. Most tours let you touch objects. To make sure it is OK, ask the ranger who is giving you the tour.
If you miss a tour, there is still more to explore. There are usually trails that take you around forests or monuments. I remember at Mount Rushmore that the trail would take you to different angles to get nice sharp pictures of the memorial. Some trails may be closed so ask the ranger at the visitor center desk.
If you plan to visit any National Park, be sure to purchase a passport to your National Parks. This tells you all the facts about the park and you can stamp it at every park.
If you want to visit a National Park in Colorado, some of the parks are Bents Fort, Mesa Verde, and Rocky Mountain National Parks.
Don’t just take my word, visit a National Park this year and you won’t be disappointed.
