In honor of the National Park Service platinum anniversary

In honor of the federal agency’s 100th anniversary (which was actually yesterday, but we put this off just long enough to give your weekend plans a jump start), here’s a sampling of the Bay Area’s natural charms, many of which wouldn’t be here at all if not for a century of hard work ever since Teddy Roosevelt opened NPS’s doors in 1916.

Golden Gate Park (not actually an NPS ward, but we could hardly start with anything else)
