Happy to Help

Last summer a US National Park Service employee contacted me about using one of my photos in an NPS publication. They were working on a new guide brochure for Mount Rainier National Park in Washington and stumbled across this photo from my post about that park.

Although I’ve had a few photos published, I was particularly excited about having something printed in a National Park Service publication. I was honored to grant them permission to use the photo, and today I received copies of the new park guide.

Although my humble photo is relatively modest in the overall layout, I’m happy to play even a small role in the conservation and education goals of the National Park Service. Although I know I contribute through park fees and donations to the National Park Foundation, this particular donation was especially meaningful to me. I’m always happy to help advance the cause of protecting and preserving the most spectacular places in America.

    I would love to tripple-“like” this. It IS a beautiful photo (so there’s 1 “like”) and it is SO cool that NPS asked for this (two “likes”) and this is just great (so three “likes” ). Enjoy the moment!
