The first national park was Yellowstone in Cody, Wyoming, and was signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1872, followed by Mackinac National Park in 1875 (decommissioned in 1895), and then Rock Creek Park (later merged into National Capital Parks), with Sequoia and Yosemite following in 1890. And the newest national park is Pinnacles National Park, upgraded in 2013.
But we really love Yellowstone National Park. It’s so rich in history and monumental sights to see and activities to experience. And so breathtakingly beautiful and rife with natural splendor. Each year, millions of people visit Yellowstone to discover grizzly bears, huge moose and elk and majestic eagles, the awesome geysers and mud pots, the vast forests and lakes, and amazing historic cabins and prehistoric sites. If you visit this portal here (http://yellowstone.net/) it just might be the next best thing to actually being there. For you don’t need to take a cruise around the world to experience the vacation of a lifetime. Yellowstone National Park awaits you. And us, too, the 59 VETERANS PROJECT, in the honored company of our military veterans!
