I have retired from law enforcement and I plan on seeing as much of the USA that I can. I really love national parks and national monuments, I find them relaxing and find myself drawn to them in a way I cannot explain. There is nothing that can compare to artwork of Nature. I love trees, mountains, rivers, wildlife and just about everything related to the great outdoors. National parks are my place of solitude where I can escape whatever worries and problems that I may be facing at the time. We are obligated as humans to preserve these pieces of wilderness so that many generations after we are gone can still enjoy them as much as we do.
