As infuriating as it may be, I’m not about to let myself get too cranked up about the temporary closing of the parks. In spite of the best efforts of those of little vision and sense and sensibility (on both sides of the aisle) in DC to hold things hostage, the gates will open again.
So I’ll just relax and realize that places like the lower falls will endure long after said visionless and short-sighted ones have vanished from the face of the earth.

how you can help
An important part of this journey will be raising funds through this blog. Whether we like it or not, the fact is we need money to do things. I have three ways below in this sidebar that you can help if you're willing and able.
First, I have a selection of notecards and a calendar available through Redbubble, and the selection will be growing as I add new work.
I also have some affiliate links, and again I will be adding a few more. If you regularly buy from these places, it would be a wonderful thing if you went there through these links. It won't cost you any more and I make a small commission from every sale made through this site. It all helps.
Then I have a crowdfunding page at GoFundMe where you can simply donate. Any amount, and 10% of all money raised will in turn be donated to NPCA on behalf of our national parks.
You will find links to all of that below, and thanks in advance for your support.
you can follow my desert adventures at twitter too…
Simply put, buying through the links below will help fund my travels. Please do so... and don't worry. It's safe and secure.
