"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

Marie's Headstone

This is a headstone in the Gardiner Cemetery for Marie Douglass from Nebraska. She died when she was 9 years old as she traveled through Yellowstone in a covered wagon. It would be interesting to know more about her and her family.
