The Parks in Your Backyard

State Parks seem to be often over shadowed by the great National Parks system this country has, however chances are you live closer to a state park then a national one. I recently picked up an old National Geographic issue from 1961 that outlined some of the best state parks in our country by region at the time. The article mentioned state parks close to me like Hungry Mother State park that I didn’t even know existed.

The State Park’s article was of course inundated with the classic kodachrome pictures that the older National Geographic magazines are known for. I couldn’t help but to¬† scan and dump a handful here, you can see the rest of them here. Anyways I encourage you all to get out and visit your own state’s parks wherever you may be, there are probably some closer to where you live then you realize.
