Happy Birthday National Park Service!

Today, August 25, 2014, is the National Park Service's 98th birthday. The National Park Service was established in 1916 with the responsibility of protecting and managing all existing parks (only 35 at the time) as well as any future parks and monuments set aside by Congress.

After 98 years protecting 401 parks comprised of more than 84 million acres, NPS deserves some recognition. In honor of the special day, we asked you to share your best park photos with us. We got a ton of submissions, and we hope you'll keep 'em coming! Post to our Flickr group or tag your Twitter and Instagram photos with #HappyBirthdayNPS.

P.S. Today the National Park Service is offering free admission to all parks, so get out there and enjoy (and take some awesome photos)!
