A to Z challenge : N is for National Parks

Nature is protected and preserved in National Parks.

Here are a few examples of National Parks I have walked in New Zealand.

Haast Pass National Park

The walk through Haast Pass National Park, situated on the West coast of new Zealand’s South Island, is a journey into a wonderland of native rainforest, Teatree’s, ferns and dripping mosses.

Look for the Hobbits...

This is a contrast to the other National Parks, dry and stony, the track is leading to the Fox Glacier in the Southern Alps of New Zealand.

 Huge valleys of ice that extend well below the snow-line, almost to the sea. Here the ice age is still underway.

I searched Google for any tunes about “National Parks” and I found this spectacular video and music depicting Yosemite National Park. I hope you enjoy it.
