Photo from around ~2002 inside one of the fully enclosed trails within the Mystery Flesh Pit National Park. These trails were some of the most expensive to both construct and maintain, offering unparalleled access to the interior of the park to people of all physical conditions.

Great Basin National Park in Nevada is one of the darkest spots in the United States. What better time to appreciate this park's clear night sky, then on International Day of Clean Air? Good air quality coupled with a lack of light pollution give visitors majestic starry views of Wheeler Peak. On clear, moonless nights at Great Basin, thousands of stars, numerous planets, star clusters, meteors, man-made satellites, the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Milky Way can be seen with the naked eye. The area boasts some of the darkest night skies left in the country. Low humidity, good air quality, and minimal light pollution, combined with high elevation, create a unique window to the universe.

Watch as the color of Crater Lake National Park's famous blue water deepens brilliantly. 
The park's water comes directly from snow and rain -- there are no other water sources, which means there is no sediment or minerals, helping it maintain its rich color and making it one of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the world.
