Backpacker誌 2005年12月号

今月号(California Edition)の特集は、”The National Parks Issue”です。National Parkの将来(”The Future of National Parks”)、ヨセミテのDNCで働く人たち(”Yosemite@$7.38 An Hour”)、NPSの管理(”National Parks Inc.”)などに関する面白い記事が満載です。特に”The Future…”ではYosemite NPの公園長(Superintendent)のMike Tollefsonが登場しています。氏の好きな公園はNorth Cascadesだそうです。

Tollefson’ long career with the NPS includes the superintendency of Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. He served as a ranger in Katmai, Denali and Lake Clark National Parks and Preserves in Alaska, and Virgin Islands (VI) and North Cascades (WA) National Parks. He also has been in policy leadership positions in the NPS regional office in the Pacific Northwest. He moved to Sequoia in 1995 where he focused on implementing the Giant Forest project, as well as acquiring the pristine Dillonwood property at the headwaters of the Tule River for Sequoia National Park (CA).
