I wonder why they did not restore the house to it?s fullest back in 2002 :?:
Incredible to see the degradation in such a short period of time.
Question of the day: What national park was decommissioned? (most people think national parks are sacrosanct...but they are political creations and, as such, are not immune to being dismantled). In at least one case this has occurred.10 extra points if you can say what happened to the park. 10 more if you can say when.
Are you referring to Mackinac National Park that became Mackinac Island State Park in 1895?Or Platt National Park that became Chickasaw National Recreation Area in 1976?Or Sullys Hill National Park that became Sullys Hill National Game Preserve in 1931.
I was looking at that list on Wikipedia last week and remembered it when you brought up the question...so I didn't even have to search for it.
Those Greens that grow on east texas and don?t on cactus means nothing if they would have decided to hire the folks in Boquillas or the other small ejido in Chihuahua at the very foot of the entrance to Santas Elena Canyon....Oh, I forgot :!: ..That is illegal to save greens for the park budget and more. Forget it. Nothing said here...
the ability of Big Bend to compete against parks like Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon, etc. for the limited available funds.
