There are 58 national parks in the United States. America was the first country in the world to set aside land masses for conservation purposes, and Yellowstone National Park was the first park to be set aside.

We haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Yellowstone, but we have witnessed the wonders of many national parks of the United States. From the wonders of California’s Yosemite National Park to Haleakala National Park on Maui, we’ve managed to experience a variety of U.S. parks.

And the parks are as beautiful as they are diverse. They comprise both the highest point in North America and the lowest, hottest, and driest point, as well. They span every possible terrain, landscape, and climate you can imagine. They are beautiful, humbling, and awe-inspiring. One photograph cannot capture the grandeur of the U.S. National Park System, but we tried anyway. Here are our most glorious photos from our travels through some of the most iconic parks in the country.  Enjoy.
