13 Breathtaking Pictures Shot in U.S. National Parks

A national park is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of wild nature for posterity and as a symbol of national pride. The United States has 59 national parks. These gorgeous photos highlight scenery from just few of them:

    There is no Bison National Park – There is a National Bison Range which is a National Wildlife Refuge in Montana established in1898 by Teddy Roosevelt to protect and preserve the North American buffalo.

    I think the author should have done a bit more research before posting this article. As mentioned there is no Bison National Park, and the image showing Pinnacles National Park is taken from the Pinnacles National Park in Australia!!
