"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

My First Day at Canyon Village

This is what greeted me at Canyon Village on May 12. Though I know snow (since I am from northern Minnesota) I had gotten used to spring. It appeared I was going to have to learn how to enjoy winter for at least a while longer.
