I have had this tab open in my browser for the past couple of days. It seems only fitting that I should share it here today along with three other videos all showcasing the National Parks.
As the government is on a forced "vacation" the national parks are closed. With people having their well planned vacations shot down, weekly hikes cancelled and general outdoor activities cancelled within the lands saved for people to enjoy. Why? They are staffed by government people. Park Rangers are national, just like Congress, the main difference is that the politicians will still be fine with their hefty paychecks while the Rangers, who make alot less than their suit wearing counterparts, are left to hang. They took those jobs to allow people to enjoy the wild lands saved for future generations and protect the land and the people from danger.
So while the United States government throws a temper-tantrum it is everyone else who suffers. So let us look at four films that will make you want to hope that barrier and enjoy the wild. Am I saying to break the law, no, am I saying that Mother Nature does not make gates? Your decision.
A fun little read about those who like to Occupy places.
And if you would like a little insight into what a National Park Ranger might go through during their time on duty check out Andrea Lankford's "Ranger Confidential."
