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.

A Media Briefing Report About Kilauea’s Current Activity

Flying Over The Lava Flow

Aloha.  Yesterday afternoon  (Sunday, May 12th), I represented the National Parks Traveler and dialed in to a USGS media briefing about the current activity surrounding Kilauea volcano, on the Big Island of Hawaii, in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.  I wrote up a report which was subsequently published on the Traveler’s site. To read about this, click on the photo above.  Mahalo.
