Mission: I build this website in my spare time. I truly love the national parks and wanted a better way to see them. The purpose of this site at first was about building a great website but as I learned more and more about the national parks the more I learned about something called PADDD. It stands for Protect Areas Downgrading, Downsizing, and Degazettement. It basically the legal process which national parks and national reverses are being downsized. The purple dots below are places where a downgrade has been enacted or proposed. It has become my mission to help draw attention to the destruction of our natural treasures.

Please enjoy the parks and reflect how long it has taken nature to make such amazing sights. Do your part and help promote awareness of the destruction of our natural wonders. I want to wish you the best on your travels and journeys.
Thank you and have a wonderful trip!
