A Parks Photo Journal

When I mentioned recently that I would be working at Yellowstone this summer, an old (not ancient!) ranger friend at Arches wrote that he "predicts many supervolcano posts" on this blog.  I too have a prediction of my own - that I will have a wonderful time discovering and writing about the geology and wildlife found in our first national park.  It's been over 30 years since I've been to Yellowstone and I am beyond excited to be going.

Work starts May 15, and I will be busy the next few weeks packing and getting things ready for life in government housing.  For now, I offer a photo journal of some of the national parks I have had the pleasure to visit and/or work at over the years.  Click on the image for its description.   Enjoy!

  1. Our western parks are all so beautiful in their own way. When visitors ask me which park I like best I always tell them "Whatever one I'm at." You'll so love working at Yellowstone. I too look forward to lots of photos.

    Hope you housing situation is better than last year. Good luck!
