    Good Times

    In my 20's I worked in almost every national park across the west. Plus I've been in the forest service. Why did I ever leave to pursue a 'real' career? Looking back, when I was in either, it was the best times of my life. I wonder if I'm too old to go back.

    National Battlefields

    I am not a militarist, but you cannot not but be moved at many of the Civil War battlefields, realizing what happened there and how many died. I hope we never let those be "privatized."

    I Love National Parks!

    National Parks are the most beautiful places on Earth.  They are saved land exactly for that reason!  I've only been to a few: Death Valley, Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon, Redwood, Lassen, but there's so many more I want to go to!

    California

    Westward

    For one reason or another I still have not made it to Arches, Zion, Sequoia, or Yellowstone. From all the photos and footage seen, I'd likely not want to leave once I got there. They look to be the type of places that I'd like to call home... Anyone been?
