The following article was written by Carrie Estrella for the Art Forward series through the Rahr-West Art Museum. Speaking from personal experience gained by our summer family road trip this year, its impossible not to be awe-inspired by the natural beauty of America’s national parks – especially when taking in the nation’s (and the world’s) first national park – Yellowstone – where beauty literally engulfs you at every turn.
