National Parks are naturals for couples in love

OUTDOOR RELATIONSHIPS -- Some 35 years ago, I got a wild hair to propose marriage to my sweetie -- the best decision of my life.

As a bonus, the adventure of a week-long backpacking trip through Grand Canyon National Park sealed the deal and made our commitment to each other a spectacularly memorable event.

Other couples have been similarly inspired, as this short video from the National Park Service suggests.

I hope you have an outdoors connection with your favorite Valentine.
