10 Stunning Photos of America's National Parks

Wallace Stegner has described our national parks as "the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst." The National Park Service (NPS) is turning 100 next year and to celebrate the agency launched a campaign last month with the help of Michelle Obama, Bill Nye and others to encourage everyone, especially young people, to get out and enjoy our parks. This week is National Park Week and to celebrate we have gathered 10 of the best photos of the past week from the Department of the Interior's Instagram.
