I thought it would be neat to write a post on Fridays, or maybe when, with neat news or other cool things I want to share with you.
However, I seem to lack creative juices at the moment and can’t figure out what to call it….. I’ll work on it. I also want to warn you for my horrible writing skills. I seem to be having a hard time making complete, grammatically correct sentences.
On Tuesday November 11th- The National Park Service is waving all entrance fees for all parks for all visitors. I recommend finding out what events may be taking place near you! Go connect with your National Park areas that people have been fighting and fought for you to have.
I’ll be heading to the Williamsburg area again to take part in the events there! Historic Jamestowne – Yorktown Battlefield

News you probably have already read, but something that I think is super cool; a gray wolf has been spotted along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon!
“In the early 1900s over 30 wolves on the North Kaibab, including Grand Canyon National Park, were killed by government hunters,” said Kim Crumbo, conservation director for Grand Canyon Wildlands Council. “The possibility that a determined wolf could make it to the Canyon region is cause for celebration, and we must insist that every effort be taken to protect this brave wanderer.”
