An incredible video that will make you fall in love with the US National Parks

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: the US National Parks are the outdoor adventure that every nature lover should experience. And with the celebration of the parks' centenary this year, there has been plenty to remind those seeking a nature escape to give the parks a try.

What many travellers don't realise, however, is that the National Park System encompasses more than just the heaviest-hitters. Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and the Everglades are all beloved for good reason, but did you know that there is a Hawaii Volcanoes National Park or a Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky? The sheer range of landscapes you can find in these protected areas is hard to imagine, but the curious traveller will find them all worth a visit to the USA.

The Guardian recently came out with this gorgeous time-lapse video to demonstrate the variety of plants and wildlife you can find within the parks, and we encourage you to take the next minute to enjoy a little bit of armchair travel:

If you're looking to plan a holiday to the National Parks, take a look at the Park Service website for some of the events and promotions that are on offer through 2016.
