Coyote in Grand Teton National Park, NPS.

All techies – if you’re asking what you can do for your country, go to the U.S. Fisheries and Wildlife Service and volunteer to help bring their website into the 21st century.  Ditto, the Park Service. They have wonderful images and videos in the public domain, but you could go gray waiting for them to load.

The coyote is in Grand Teton National Park, one of three we’re celebrating today.  In an odd coincidence, both Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge signed national parks into being on this date.  Wilson made Grand Canyon and Acadia official in 1919 and ten years later, Coolidge did the same for Grand Teton.

I am taking advantage of the occasion to post my holiday snaps of the Grand Canyon, a place that you need to see many, many times in order to believe that it’s real.  Although I hear that Arches, Yosemite, Bryce Canyon and a few others are also pretty stunning.

There is a monarch butterfly in the picture if you can find it.

Busy, busy river.
