  • There are 63 National Parks (and several hundred other monuments and properties) – 63 Merkins

Circle of TrustThe parks are amazing and America is a beautiful place, but what makes her great are the people you meet.  Treat people with respect (which is hard), one of the most challenging things is to see people as image bearers of God, the imago dei, and not instruments or things in the way.
