"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

Park Robyn

How do you know when life is good?  Well, one way to tell is when a boat is named after you.  Patrick's career in the park service has included many dimensions, one includes using a Park Ranger boat on Yellowstone Lake.  When one of the boats he had used in the past was retired from the park service and put up for auction he lept at the chance to own it. 

Patrick is now the proud owner of the boat and I am the proud person that it is now named after.  We are hoping to have the boat back on Yellowstone Lake in August and doing some touring and fishing.  So if you are out on Yellowstone Lake and you see the Park Robyn cruising by just wave, I'll be the one on it with a big grin.
