Sunrise or Sunset?

Sunrise Seen From Upper Inspiration Point

This is not a trick question, but more of a rhetorical one, actually.  Today’s National Parks Traveler has published a Featured Story regarding the proposed changes to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and how it could impact those species living / foraging within our national parks.  It’s a worthwhile read, and if you want to check it out, just click on the photo above.

Play Hard But Play Safe

Portrait

Before getting down to the business of spending the day packing up more of my apartment, posting items for sale on eBay, and staying ahead of the game by writing more future photo articles for the National Parks Traveler, I thought I’d post this photo with a link (click the pic) to a great story in today’s edition of the Traveler about playing it safe when visiting a national park.  This article can be applied to really any wild place you happen to visit, be it a national park, national monument, state park, or just some wild place you spot while driving along that you want to explore more while capturing some cool pictures.  And no, the safety tips are not just about bears.  They range the gamut and it’s worth a read.

What Ken Burns and Others have to Say about The National Parks Traveler

Sunrise And Moonset Over Many Glacier

I check the National Parks Traveler every day to see what new articles have been published.  One of the articles this morning deals with what other well-known authors, journalists, filmmakers, and other national park-related entities have to say about this non-profit, editorially-independent website.

I know, it sounds almost like overkill, doesn’t it:  3 posts in a single May morning about the National Parks Traveler.  Well, I’m proud of this site and my photographic and journalistic contributions to this site and want to share that other well-knowns have the same opinion.
