Virtual National Park Tours

Did you know that you check out and take a virtual tour of some of the most popular national parks online? I know that I need an escape from everything going on right now and wanted to share it with others.

The National Park Service (NPS) has a great website with a ton of tours, videos, webcams, photos, articles, and other excellent resources.

First, I have to share my favorite national park, Yellowstone National Park. Click here to virtually tour parts of Yellowstone like the Mud Volcano area, the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Mammoth Springs, and some other areas. 

You can also check out another one of my favorites, the Grand Teton National Park, by clicking here.

Who has seen the 1977 movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind?  The film used this unique tower in Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming. You can visit it virtually and check out this distinct tower by clicking here.

I have always wanted to visit Denali National Park in Alaska. Click here to take a virtual tour of this national park.

Take a virtual tour of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in New York by clicking here.

The national park service has a ton of other online opportunities to virtually explore our national park treasures. Click here for NPS’s main page and search your interests.

Take a minute and enjoy our country’s beauty and treasures online. It will do wonders for the soul during these tough times right now.

 

 

National Grammar Day

Happy National Grammar Day! Yes, this is really National Grammar Day!

This particular holiday is only 12 years old.  Martha Brockenbrough created National Grammar Day in 2008. She is the founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar.  The English language has over a million words. Our language has some set rules and also has some debatable rules in it as well.  We have a holiday to celebrate this sometimes crazy grammar.

How do we celebrate this holiday?  It is quite easy.  Use proper grammar today! 😉  Or be crazy and purchase a style guide or grammar resource today!

Enjoy your words and Happy National Grammar Day!
