ARCHES NATIONAL PARK

CAPITOL REEF NATIONAl PARK

My name is Dan. I'm a student at Downers Grove North. I play football and baseball and am a very active person.

The two national parks I was assigned to do are very interesting. There were two very good and informational websites on Arches and Capitol Reef.

Basic information on the parks:

Located in the heart of the grand canyon
