The National Park Service is easily my favorite federal agency and the one that deserves so much more funding than Congress has been willing to give in recent years. If I were able to be transported back to the threshold of my professional career, a role with the National Park Service would likely be my first choice.

Since I collect hiking medallions from each National Park I visit, the image above seemed quite appropriate.  Happy 100th Birthday to the best America has to offer Рthe National Park Service. Peace!

p.s. Thank you President Obama for designating Katahdin Woods and Waters in the lovely State of Maine as the newest National Monument!
