Photo Guide Updates

I have updated the Mt. Rainier NP photo guide with the suggestions and plans. These are the plans for the immediate work, for the next few months, and for the rest of the year and beyond.

I've also updated the book resources Web page with the latest acquistions, all of which are pre-1970 and many pre-1950, some even first editions from the 1920's. In doing the research I've found many of the NPS and USGS publications are now available in PDF format from their Website, which is really cool.

Some of the USGS publications, some from the 1960's, are still available in print from their warehouse. The USGS doesn't throw published reports away after the print runs. They simply send them to a central repository for distribution. And since the USGS can't profit from their sale, you can often get original print editions cheaper than the used book market.

You're always welcome to add your ideas and suggestions using the contact link. The faint object to the left of the moon is Saturn. Photo taken from Paradise Web cam April 7th at 7:00 AM.
