Thanks for dropping by my online home.
I've been fortunate enough to spend a career protecting some of America's exceptional treasures, and I've lived in some memorable places and traveled to others. I've been lucky to share this journey with another ranger and a bunch of great dogs.
Along the way, I developed a passion for preserving and sharing the history of the people who lived in the places that are now national parks, especially the men and women of Lake Superior's Apostle Islands: farmers and fishermen, loggers and lighthouse keepers, and so many others.
The articles and essays posted here reflect those interests and experiences. I hope you enjoy what you find.
