Thank you, Teddy

Theodore Roosevelt’s first wife and mother died on the same day in the same house in (I think) 1883. Devastated by that loss and trying to rebuild his life, he ventured west, to western North Dakota, and it was there that he was able to find some solace and regain a sense of purpose. Our national parks that exist today owe their existence, in no small part, to his foresight and conviction that our lands should be treasured and preserved. The photos that follow are from the nat’l park that bears his name.
