National Park Week – Inspiration

The theme for today in this year’s national park week focuses on inspiration. The national park system definitely contains a lot of sources for inspiration from the people to the landscapes to the wildlife to the history and so on!

The national parks can also inspire creativity. National parks have inspired artistic expression and creativity for many, many years. The national parks have definitely inspired me! Our national parks inspired me to write children’s book set in a national park. I created a magical national park, Erutuf National Park, as the setting for my children’s book series. The first book in the series is Turtle Tube: An Erutuf National Park Novel. It’s not a real national park, but an idealistic and magical one.

How have the national parks inspired you?

Happy National Park Week!
