The 4th of July weekend causes us to reminisce of earlier times and family traditions!
Are you old enough to remember the multitude of railroad excursions to see America’s glorious western National Parks? It was the Northern Pacific Railroad’s excursion to see Yellowstone National Park that was responsible for the Congressional Yellowstone Park Act signed by President Grant in 1872 which established the world’s and USA’s first national park!
The Northern Pacific was soon joined by the Union Pacific Railroad with the Yellowstone tourist traffic but the Union Pacific then added it‘s “Summer Tours” to Zion, Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon National Parks.
Finally, the Southern Pacific Railroad could take you to Yosemite, the Burlington Railroad to Rocky Mountain, the Great Northern Railway to Glacier and the Santa Fe Railroad also to the Grand Canyon National Parks.
Before the Eisenhower Interstates, this was the way to ‘Celebrate America’ by taking a railroad excursion to enjoy the beauty of our country and its National Park System.
Only to be followed by “See the USA in your Chevrolet”!
