Grayson Cole and the National Park System, a continuing story

One of the central themes of Unleashing Colter's Hell is that the national park system is a physical manifestation of America's hopes, dreams, and values. Hopefully, the story of America will never be complete, therefore the national park system will continually need to expand and evolve to better tell that story.

Along those lines, Congress is considering legislation to expand the Oregon Caves National Monument. The expansion would provide increased visitor amenities, better protect natural and cultural wonders, and provide expanded recreation opportunities. I'm fortunate to play a role in the expansion of our system by helping to build public support for park additions like that proposed at Oregon Caves.

The Grayson Cole adventures detail the hurdles park rangers face to preserve and protect our national heritage. Adding new units to the park system better tells the American story, it also provides additional settings and stories for future Grayson Cole adventures.
