>The Department of the Interior wants to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day, and remind you of all the love found in national parks across America.

Interior officials today posted a video to YouTube featuring pictures and short videos of proposals, weddings and happy couples, including at least two shots of Arches National Park in southern Utah.

The video also shows a gay Marine who asked his boyfriend to marry him at the White House during Christmastime, and a soon-to-be fiancé cautioning her boyfriend not to drop the ring as they dangle from ropes in the red-rocks of Utah.

while the new fiancé warns her boyfriend not to drop the ring.

"As stewards of America's National Parks, Wildlife Refuges and other public lands, we get to see many wonderful events on a daily basis," the department said in posting the video. "None of which are more exciting than when we see visitors using our Nation's public lands for their most memorable moments."
