The five national parks in Utah draw several million visitors from around the world each year to marvel at surreal scenery and create their own unforgettable experiences. A trip to these parks includes watching the sunrise over the towering depths of Canyonlands National Park, then watching the sunset through Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. You can see ancient petroglyphs in Capitol Reef National Park, then watch a beautiful meteor shower streaks across the Milky Way. Gaze down at coral-hued rock hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park or gaze upward at the steep walls of slot canyon trails in Zion National Park. You can hike, river raft, bike, picnic, 4-wheel drive, walk, and even ride a mule to experience these amazing landscapes, their vibrant culture and rich history.
Two new posters — one for Big Bend National Park, the other for Guadalupe Mountains National Park — were just released this week. The two parks, both in Texas feature dramatic landscapes, amazing views, and remote wilderness of the American West!
Big Bend National Park
Big Bend National Park is located in a remote part of Southern Texas and borders Mexico along the Rio Grande. It has national significance as the largest protected area of Chihuahuan Desert topography and ecology in the United States. It contains more than 1,200 species of plants, more than 450 species of birds, 56 species of reptiles, and 75 species of mammals. The Rio Grande corridor is also a migration highway for many species passing through the desert. Elevation contrast create varied microclimates that further enhance the diversity of plant and animal life.
