Draft of Park Rules Stresses Conservation

Washington Post
Trying to catch up on the news after working 35+ hours in 3 days is tough, but this article caught my interest. Seems the Bush administration has appointed someone who is actually listening, and taking action in preserving our national parks. I strongly believe the parks should be restricted in the use of motorized vehicles, for many reasons. I can only hope the draft is taken as it stands, and I intend on adding my comments formally, as there’s a 90 day window to do so. I’ll update after I make my voice heard.

Beautiful pictures, and great insight. He seems to be about half way through the parks, so I’m looking forward to the rest of his journey. I’ve not been to quite as many parks as he, but reading his ventures through Rocky Mountain National Park and Badlands stirred memories of a younger, more bright-eyed miklb driving cross the the plains of North Dakota and Wyoming, down into Denver. Having grown up with the natural beauty of Florida, the northern plains and the Rocky Mountains were another world.
I’m looking forward to the rest of Jesse’s adventure, and wish him the best in his sojourn.
