The National Parks system is one of the gems of the USA. Beginning with the Yellowstone National Park Act of 1872, it set aside more than 2 million acres in Wyoming and Montana for the "benefit and enjoyment of the people" and established itself as the first National Park. Since then the park system has grown to 60 national parks, with the most recent being Gateway Arch in Missouri.
