But park rangers ARE superheroes!

Cereal Man and Purple Rain (two of my fellow rangers). Good superheroes craft their own costumes from paperboard, fabric, ice-climbing shoes and thrift-shop unitards.

Living up at the Island in the Sky (Canyonlands NP), isolated from the Real World, park rangers must create their own entertainment. Birthdays are often used as an excuse to invent a good party theme. For Ranger Bobby’s 29th, various and sundry superheroes showed up at his apartment to celebrate.

Lara Croft, Tomb Raider (aka Sharon, law enforcement)

You can see why I thoroughly enjoyed living here for ten weeks, and delight in going back to work twice a week this fall. It’s a fun-loving, creative, wacky bunch of intelligent and interesting people that keep this park going — for visitors and for each other.

Green Lantern and his faithful sidekick (aka Mike and Maile Dog)
