What is it about National Parks?
People speed past dazzling scenery to get to a National Park. But once they cross the park’s boundary, they creep along at 25 mph and stop to examine every vista and to study every twig and branch of each tree. Somehow, inside the invisible line that signals the park’s border, nature has become worth studying. The natural world is now worth the time. Apparently outside, where the sights may be just as spectacular, nature is just something to get through with the gas pedal fixed to the floorboard.
Can we call everything a National Park and go from there?
