This month – August 2016 – marks the 100th birthday of the US National Park System. As you click around this site, it will come as no surprise that I love the great outdoors and am very inspired by the beauty of my country's vast protected spaces. Many of the pictures that you see on the site are from different National Parks across the country.
As summer starts to wind down, I want to encourage my readers – both in the US and abroad – to make it to a National Park during this centennial celebration. You can find inspiration here.
I am promoting our National Park network, as I believe it's important for each of us to give back in a way that feels appropriate. Via my Tandem Empowers program, I enjoy giving back to people in need and to charities that help to empower the world's most disadvantaged people. This year – for the first time – I am happy to throw my support behind something that's near and dear to my heart and the hearts of many of my fellow citizens: America's best idea – our National Park System.
Join me in heading outside this summer and rejuvenating ourselves for an amazing, productive Autumn.
