Terry Tempest Williams finds her way home -- park by park by park 26.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In the grandeur of America’s national parks, Utah writer Terry Tempest Williams found her life’s work. It seems the writer’s 15 earlier books were preparing her to tackle her most epic story ever: America itself.

The book is particularly resonant in the middle ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Letter: 'Wheels in wilderness' idea has no traction 26.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Wes Swenson’s argument for wheels in the wilderness has no traction (Tribune, Aug. 21.)

Swenson’s optimism is not reflected in woeful congressional allocations for our park...

Yosemite, and Obama, head into virtual reality 26.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • In a new project with National Geographic, Barack Obama becomes the first sitting U.S. president to project himself into virtual reality — in this case, a 360-degree representation of Yosemite National Park. The 11-minute VR video, narrated by Obama, is one part paean to the wonders of America’s national parks and one part warning of the threat posed by climate change. It’s also a testament to how powerful VR can be when done right. National Geographic joined Facebook’s Oculus Studios...

National parks -- like Utah's Canyonlands -- have often generated controversy 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
As thousands celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park System today, inspirational words will be written about one of America’s greatest gifts to the world.

Time travel back to the late 1950s and early 1960s, for example, when the debate over the d... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
