Yosemite National Park got a special birthday gift from the internet the other day with a special logo on Google to celebrate its 123rd birthday, which is pretty spectacular. This means that people are noticing and recognizing what nature really means to the public.
Yosemite and other parks are so precious and great gifts from conservationists and preservationists from days gone by. The millions of acres that we have kept for education, exercise and recreation.
They are places that families continue to go each year and have very special places in people’s hearts. With all of the overly-trammeled land, it is so nice to have a place that people can go to see true nature.
So happy to Yosemite and to all the other national parks like Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and all the other wild areas that bring us joy.
