It’s National Park Week! From sea to shining sea, from North America’s lowest point at Death Valley National Park in California to the highest peak on the continent at Denali National Park in Alaska, your national parks showcase some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. If you need another example, here’s an incredible view at Glacier National Park in Montana. Check in with us throughout the week to see if we feature your favorite park. Photo by Jacob W.

The fall colors are showing at Blue Lake in North Cascades National Park in Washington. Photographer Albert Yang described the scene he captured: “The lake was so still I almost felt like I had to hold my breath to embrace it. I was searching for fall colors and these larch trees were just gorgeous. It was my first time exploring this area and I know I will return many, many times in the future.” Photo courtesy of Albert Yang.
There’s nothing like waking up at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Pull back the tent flap and walk into a bright world of vivid color and crisp mountain air. The sounds of the water lapping at the shore of a lake surrounded by tall trees and towering peaks revives the sense and refreshes the soul. Photo by Tim Wood (www.sharetheexperience.org).
