Greetings from Shenandoah National Park!
I am a 65 year old lover of the outdoors and an avid hiker, cyclist and camper. My life has been sprinkled with visits to National Parks across America, most recently Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. My wife and I camped at Big Meadow and participated in Hike for Histiocytosis, a disease one of our granddaughters has. In 2012 I did a thru hike of the AT and remember the Shenandoah area as one of my favorites. In 2017 I can see why I felt that way. What an amazing park with beautiful vistas, open meadows, roaring creeks and a wide variety of wildflowers!
P.S. I support the parks because… Given today's national political climate with a president determined to cut National Park funding and a Secretary of the Interior seemingly more interested in corporate America than with preserving our country's wilderness, now is the time that we as private citizens must act. Small donations made by a large number of people will go a long way in securing long term protection of our National Parks. That is why I give.
