Happy 100th Birthday to the National Park Service

Though the NPS has been celebrating its Centennial throughout the year, today – August 25th – marks the actual date the park service was founded.

The last few weeks have been exceptionally dry here, with monsoonal moisture from the four corners region unable to penetrate the area. This has been especially unfortunate since a wildfire has been burning near Jackson, Wyoming since July 17th. There are other fires in Idaho as well, but this one so close to the Tetons … Continued
