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 … Continued
