Tag You’re It


Here are my picks for the Thinking Blogger Award:

  1. Jim Macdonald: Compiles the Yellowstone Newspaper, blogs about Yellowstone in The Magic of Yellowstone, discusses philosophical underpinnings of anti-authoritarianism and how it relates to park administration, and maintains a discussion forum – among other wonders of the blogsphere.
  2. Small Dead Animals: insights from Canada, pertinent to all of us.
  3. verbena-19: another bucketful of insight from Canada, social justice, environment, civil liberties, environmental awareness – great stuff – [old site, new site.]
  4. Wild Wilderness Blog: well researched perspectives about the threats to our public lands and the ever present push to make a buck.
  5. CUSS: irreverent, tawdry, base, uncouth, true, real, and what all of us are really thinking – but not saying!

Well, that’s it. There are certainly others worthy of the tag, but these are the guys that I read and these are the ones that make me think. Visit them and let me know. Comments are always open.

I’d Never Thunk It


.. The early morning email brought me a present from the Wildlife Alive blog. The official tag for the thinking blogger award is in the comments of my last post. thinkingbloggerskyblu.jpgI’m more than flattered because this blog is primarily for me and the staff. It is a group of truncated and segmented threads of my musings – hardly a “think piece.” Thanks to Wildlife Alive for even reading the posts.

.. There are several blogs that I feel deserve the tag, and I’ll post them in the next day or so. I just love the idea of a “peer review” of blogs.

.. Then to my surprise, while checking my Word Press links and statistics, I find that this string of words and phrases is #82 and moving on up. movin-on-up.jpgI need to plug the guys at Word Press for their constant attention to the platform and their unyielding search for excellence. I would especially like to thank Matt and Mark for stumbling through my convoluted code and fixing problems that I have encountered created – bless you both.

.. This is a good time to let you know about things in the works. There is unified bibliography about the winter access problems in Yellowstone. This will include not just the pertinent air and sound quality studies, but will provide resources about the visitor experience, Yellowstone planning, increased fees, wildlife concerns, and the long range climate outlook. Diverse as it sounds, it is all of a single fabric.

.. There is also an exposition of factors in park management that mitigate against concern for the parks and for the public’s desires. This includes a bibliography about the decisions most recently made in the “Big-Draw” parks like the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Denali, etc.
