National Parks Traveler Podcast #41: Addressing The Backlog, Out In The Parks, Spaceport Secrecy

Reflection Lake Scenery

A Reflection of “The Mountain” on Reflection Lake, Mount Rainier National Park

I write and photograph for the National Parks Traveler, a non-profit media site dedicated to daily reporting on national parks and other protected lands. Since about February of this year, the Traveler has also been producing weekly podcasts that air every Sunday. Today’s podcast talks about the National Park System’s $12 BILLION maintenance backlog with John Garder, the senior director of budget and appropriations for the National Parks Conservation Association, interviews Moon USA National Parks author Becky Lomax, and offers up some thoughts about efforts to build a commercial spaceport just west of Cumberland Island National Seashore.

To listen to this approximately 50-minute long podcast (or download it for later listening), click on the image above.

Oh, and you’ll be hearing me on a future podcast or two. I interviewed with the Traveler’s founder and editor-in-chief yesterday about winter photography, and I’m scheduled to talk to him again about favorite spots of mine for photography in the national parks I’ve visited.

Traveler Podcast Episode 4: I’m Interviewed In This Episode

Sitting Under The Tree Of Life

Sitting under the Tree of Life – at Kalaloch Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington

The National Park Traveler’s Episode 4 weekly podcast is out, and I was interviewed for a short bit. I come after the Lionfish Invasion part. I learned quite a bit about lionfish that I didn’t know, including that they are good to eat.

As for my interview, full disclosure: for those of you who have visited Olympic National Park, I mentioned the Tree of Life at Beach 4 and it’s actually at Kalaloch Beach. My bad! I was *thinking* Kalaloch Beach as I was talking about the Tree of Life, but out of my mouth came “Beach 4.” I joked with the interviewer that this is why I like writing better than extemporaneous speaking – I can review and revise with the written word.

To listen to the podcast, click on the photo above to be taken to that episode.

Oh, and for those of you who have to suffer through the start of Daylight Savings Time, remember to move your camera’s internal clock forward one hour. For my Canons, I push the Menu button, then select the tab with the wrench icon on it and scroll down to Date/Time setting to turn on or off that little Daylight Savings icon.
