59 Vets Project Welcomes You to Lake Clark National Park!

LAKE CLARK NAT'L PARK

WE’D LOVE YOU TO SHARE THIS POST EVERYWHERE!

Lake Clark National Park in beautiful, rugged Alaska is the journey and experience of a lifetime for anyone who visits it. Maybe not as well known as many of our country’s popular parks (Yosemite, Yellowstone, Death Valley, Grand Canyon). But Lake Clark definitely offers an equally unforgettable adventure to those ready to take an eager jaunt to America’s largest state.

First declared a national monument in 1978, and then established as a national park and preserve in 1980, the region around Lake Clark features four active volcanoes, including Mount Redoubt, as well as an abundance of rivers, glaciers, waterfalls, and a vast expanse of verdant terrain. Temperate rainforests, a tundra plateau, and three mountain ranges complement Lake Clark’s splendid landscape.

Wikipedia says: “The wide variety of ecosystems in the park means that virtually all major Alaskan animals, terrestrial and marine, may be seen in and around the park [including the brown bear and red fox]. Salmon, particularity sockeye salmon, play a major role in the ecosystem. No roads lead to the park and it can only be reached by boat or small aircraft, typically floatplanes. The major settled area in the park and preserve is Port Alsworth on Lake Clark. Five other settlements are within the park, populated mainly by Dena’ina natives.”

Naturally, all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT can’t wait to personally experience Lake Clark National Park and traverse its amazing precincts in the company of U.S. Veterans who we will be training for a new career in 4K ultra high-definition and virtual reality videography.

THE U.S. CAVALRY TO THE NATIONAL PARK RESCUE!

ARMY RANGERS PROTECTING YELLOWSTONEYOU GOTTA SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

Our friend “Post to Parks” on Facebook left us a nice comment here on our page regarding how the U.S. Cavalry helped save our national parks.  And our further research discovered that even Army Rangers used to protect and guard Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks.  On the National Park Service website is the following:

“In the late 1800’s there were rangers in Yellowstone and Yosemite protecting our nation’s treasures. But they weren’t Park Rangers. They were Army “Rangers” – actually, members of M Troop of the First United States Cavalry.”

This only further supports the Post to Parks comment; and we wish to thank them for their entry and friendship. Swing on over to their page here on Facebook and check them out and give ’em a like. And help each of us support our veterans and national parks!
