As celebrations surrounding the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service continue on, it’s easy to overlook the natural beauty we have right here in Utah, and more specifically, in Utah’s five national parks.

To add a more local angle to the festivities, we’ve gathered a collection of articles from the Daily Herald’s outdoors feature section, Utah Adventure, and created this slideshow, featuring Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park.

From tips for travel to memoirs and entertaining tidbits, check out this slideshow for an even closer look at some of Utah’s most valuable gems.
