BBC Travel: National Parks

Screenshot
We originally featured this resource in the 4-20-2018 Special Edition of the Scout Report, and its collection of articles and photographs of national parks around the world is worth revisiting for some outdoor inspiration.

The BBC's Travel website allows visitors to view all BBC articles that address national parks in one location, providing individuals with the opportunity to learn more about national parks located around the globe. As of this write-up, one of the most recently authored articles highlights India's Loktak Lake, which is covered by floating islands called phumdis. Collectively, the Loktak Lake phumdis have the distinction of being the only floating national park in the world. Another article highlights China's Huangshan National Park, a mountain range that is often covered in hard rime ice, a kind of frost. Yet another article discusses Hossa, which Finland declared a national park in honor of its centennial in 2017. Hossa is home to the Varikallio rock wall, which is decorated with paintings believed to be up to 4,500 years old.
