Some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders can be found in our great nation.  From the majestic Niagara Falls in New York to the Florida Everglades to the stunning glaciers of Alaska, our country is full of natural treasures. 

As a Colorado native, one of my favorite outdoor escapes—that can only be described as a work of art—is Rocky Mountain National Park.  With its vast hiking trails, a wide array of wildlife, fields of flowers, and crystal blue skies, it is the perfect place to bask in Mother Nature.  Standing along the edge of Trail Ridge Road makes you feel like you're on top of the world!  Even as I reminisce about its spectacular views, I feel a sense of serenity.

I don’t want Rocky Mountain National Park to be a memory.  I want future generations to enjoy and explore its beauty, as I have.

This planet is our home—where we live, work, and play.  And its health affects our families, our communities, our economies, our security, and our future.

That’s why the President is taking action to tackle climate change.  And it’s why he’s asking all of us to take part.  So go to Whitehouse.gov and post something about your favorite natural treasure. 

It’s our time to lead.  Happy Earth Day 2015!
