This day in history

On this day in history, two national parks were established in the United States 10 years apart — the Grand Canyon in 1919 and the Grand Tetons in 1929.

The Grand Canyon is the product of millions of years of excavation by the mighty Colorado River.

Grand Teton National Park is home to some of the most stunning alpine scenery in the U.S.
