Last semester I took a class called Geology of National Parks, and at the beginning of that semester we watched a video on the birth of national parks. It was really interesting and inspiring especially for an individual like me. One of the quotes that came from this was “National Parks, Americas greatest idea.”
That’s a powerful statement especially for our country. We as a country have brought about some of the greatest things this world has seen. We established a government unlike the world has ever known. Under that government we have established some of the most profound decree’s, principles, and laws. This country grew into the powerhouse of the world and has remained at the top for quite a few years now.
Then why are national parks Americas greatest idea?
