We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be dedicating the entire month of April to the national parks! In honor of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary and National Park Week (when all national parks will be free to visitors between April 16 and April 24), we’ll be celebrating all month with events and contests on SmarterTravel and on Instagram, Twitter, and our other favorite social media platforms.

If you follow us on Instagram, you probably know that we love featuring and promoting the amazing photography of our readers, no matter where they are in the world. But this month, we’re asking you to celebrate with us and submit any photographs taken in a national park, in the United States or abroad. We’ll be reposting throughout the month of April and will be publishing our 10 favorite photographs on April 29. To participate, tell us where the photo was taken in the caption and tag it #SmarterTravel.
