jwaskowiak I've loved this movie for a long time. The book was even better, though I suggest you see the movie too because it's too good to pass up. #alexandersupertramp #lostinthewild 2w

jwaskowiak Gifford Pinchot, Chief Forester for President Teddy Roosevelt. After learning about this man, I have great respect for following what he knew to be right in the face of extreme opposition and never turning his back on his values. Gifford was the voice for the forests of America, and is responsible in part for us having any left to enjoy. He birthed the idea of conservationism of natural resources alongside TR, and fought mightily to instill this mindset into people who were otherwise enraptured with seeing trees as dollar signs. Every time I see a tree now, I think of Gifford, Teddy, and Forest Service Rangers who dedicate their lives to preserving our great forests. #usa #history 3w

jwaskowiak Birth of the Forest Service. Teddy Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot's newfound ideas for conservationism. Horrible struggles therein and one of the biggest forest fires in american history. #history #forestservice #usa thanks @lightnfast for another great read. I can see why you would like this book. 3w
  •   b_workman If you ever want to see this area first hand there is a mtn bike ride called Route of the Hiawatha that goes right through where the fire was. A lot of interesting info along the way. Highly recommended. 3w
