Greetings from Acadia National Park!

Acadia National Park was the first park I ever visited. I saw trails that were carved for horse and buggies. I saw amazing views of the mountains and sea. I visited Everglades National Park and was amazed at how diverse things were. I visited Yosemite National Park and I remember gazing up at Half Dome, watching rock climbers on their way up to the top. The waterfalls in the park were just beautiful. But the thing I remember most about the parks is the first time I saw a sequoia tree. It was so huge that you would need a dozen people to the lock hands and make a circle around it. The trees are so tall that you couldn't even see the top. And I was amazed that some of the trees that had fallen have not decayed. Nature is a wonderful thing and these parks are so important to the identity of our nation.

Sincerely,

Barbara

P.S. I support the parks because… These parks are an historic vision of people that came more than 100 years ago. Grant was the first president to declare a national park and that was Yellowstone. Each park is iconic in its own way. Millions of Americans and tourists come every year to see these beautiful parks. We need to do what must be done to sustain these parks for the future and for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.

Get Social and the parks

With 45 miles of historic carriage roads to bike and 125 miles of trails to hike, Acadia is a premier destination for the adventurous and outdoorsy. Among the park’s granite peaks is Cadillac Mountain, which at 1,530 feet stands as the tallest mountain on the Atlantic coast.
