I Followed My Grandparents’ Footsteps By Travelling To The Same National Parks

Armed with my grandfather’s travel photographs, and my grandmother’s journals, I’ve spent the last four years roaming the United States in search of the exact locations where my grandparents once stood. You can see my first post here.

With the celebration of the National Park Service Centennial this year, here’s a unique look at the history of the National Parks through my grandfather’s lens. For more photos, visit my website.

How many people fell off those bridges before they put handrails on them all?

Probanly none...but for people wothout a safe stand, this bridge should pose little danger. The better accessibility through the handrails is a good thing, though.

I'm assuming the older photos were touched up, because if not, they are in incredibly good condition for being over 30 years old! Cool side by sides!
