Teddy Roosevelt and Yellowstone

picture is blurry--it was basically dark when I took it

I was corrected in yesterday's post about Roosevelt and Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park was created by an Act of Congress in 1872. Roosevelt dedicated the North entrance in 1903 (now knows as the "Roosevelt Arch"); he also laid the cornerstone of the Arch. Here's a link for you: LINK. This tells a little bit more about President Roosevelt's involvement with the park.

So there you go.
