If you're unable to take advantage of free National Park entry this weekend, you can still enjoy the grandeur of some of the US's best-loved National Parks thanks to National Geographic and NASA. To celebrate National Parks week they've published some of their favorite photos of parks – from space.

We were pleased to discover that Grand Prismatic looks just as colorful from space as it does from the ground. Maybe we can keep it that way if we don't trample all over it, hmm?

Take a look at a few of the images above and see more over at National Geographic Travel.
