Email the editor email@example.comI visited Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone NP last month as part of an eleven park tour. I also stopped for lunch at JH and rode the new tramway.
In Yellowstone NP we tented at Lewis Lake Campground. While there we met and chatted with the young Ranger in charge - and noticed that he was armed. It is good to know that soon I will be able to arm myself against the same threat that NPS Rangers arm themselves.
Some of the first NPS Rangers with whom I was acquainted were my friends working at Yosemite NP while I rock climbed. I recall the humorous stories that they told of deciding who had to wear _the_ gun that was so foreign to our experiences during the Sixties.
Times have changed and so have the people visiting the National Parks. The Second Amendment that "shall not be infringed" is more vital now in the Age of Aquarius than we hippies ever dreamed during our salad days.
