Happy Birthday NPS!

100 years ago Congress created the National Park Service to oversee management and protection of the various lands that were quickly being protected by presidents and Congress.  I’m not finished visiting every park yet, there’s still 30ish left for me to get to, but I’m making a dent in the list, and that’s what matters to me.

I celebrated this year by spending 4 weeks in Alaska.  I didn’t get to every park, I make it to the hard to reach ones however.  I do not have any photos put together for Gates of the Arctic, or Kobuk Valley yet.  Here’s a photo from Wrangell-St. Elias.

Kennicott
This valley isn’t leftovers from the mine, it’s leftovers from the Kennicott Glacier. As it receded, it left this moraine behind.
