100 years of parks

Teddy Roosevelt and John Muir, the fathers of the National Park Service

Teddy Roosevelt and John Muir, the fathers of the National Park Service

The National Park Service celebrated its centennial this past Thursday.
I cannot imagine this country without its parks, monuments, and forests.
They are indisputably American.
As we head into a Presidential election, it’s easy to become cynical. I resist that impulse as much as I can.
Knowing previous generations were smart enough to leave us these parks, I feel heartened for the future of our country.
We got something right.
Here’s to 100 years more!
