See what it means

The NPS arrowhead deserves a closer look.  Examine the photo in the last post, “Accessorize.”  You will see four things the NPS protects and preserves.  It’s easy to identify the bison (animals), sequoia (plants), and mountain (land).  Did you know, however, that the overall shape of the arrowhead represents our cultural heritage?  Places like Mesa Verde, Little Bighorn, Gettysburg, Hovenweep would not have endured without the NPS protection.

I am pretty sure that the NPS was one of the government’s Truly Great Ideas.
