Lovely article re Canada’s National Parks


This morning B sent me a link to an article published by The Guardian.  It revived my desire to see more of our lovely country and contains some trivia about our parks that I didn’t know.

Canada’s National Parks: from Hollywood beauties to beautiful beasts – in pictures | Travel | guardian.co.uk

The pictures are awesome!  And some of the trivia includes such things as:

1. Canada has the world’s oldest National Parks system…100 years old presently!

2. Jasper National Park is the world’s largest Dark Sky Preserve, according to the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

3. Saskatchewan is home to Canada’s only protected pelican nesting site.

We live in a beautiful country!  I want to see it all!
