And about Theodore Roosevelt, he was a dandy from New York who moved out west briefly to help garner votes to win the presidency. He was also a progressive (code word for socialist).

Don't care for these political discussions on the forum, wish they were banned permanently.

Agree with you Dave, wish we didn't have political discussion on this forum, but......since you commented on a subject I disagree with you on, so will I. The next time anyone visits/hikes/camps or otherwise enjoys a U.S. National Park, thank the "Progressive" Movement and T.R., as he greatly influenced the development of our N.P.'s. Say what you will about him politically, but don't distort his historical contributions either to conservation of our public lands.
