America the Beautiful - How lucky we are that our forefathers cared enough about this great land to preserve it's natural beauty for us to enjoy. Theodore Roosevelt treasured the American wilderness and spearheaded the efforts to conserve it as so. Can you imagine the Grand Canyon with millionaire condos perched on the overlooks? Or the Bright Angel Trail used as a motor bike trail? Or our national seashores hemmed in by giant mansions to be used only by the wealthy? Or the hot springs at Yellowstone National Park used as private spas? Can you imagine the extinction of the buffalo, without Theodore Roosevelt National Park? What other national treasures would we lose forever? Where the deer and the antelope play.
