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 – the 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!
