Today, the National Park Service celebrates its 100th birthday. The agency is in charge of some of the most majestic natural landscapes in America—landscapes visited by millions upon millions of people each year.

You know who looks like he fuckin’ loves these parks? Alfonso Ribeiro.

While searching through Getty’s cache of photos of Yellowstone National Park’s Old Faithful, we came across a series from 2015 captioned “Chex Mix Deliciously Unpredictable Road Trip,” starring Carlton Banks. While they may be more than a year old, they are, I believe, much like a fine wine. They get better with age, and also with increased consumption, which is to say: Join me on this journey.


I Googled “Alfonso Ribeiro” and “Chex Mix,” but I wasn’t satisfied by the results, so I reached out to Alfonso Ribeiro’s publicist for more detail. I will update if I hear back, but in the meantime: Happy birthday to our country’s National Park Service.
