Hi Everyone, I'm here at beautiful Great Basin National Park in Nevada. This is my 299th Park visit on my "Quest for 300" National Park Tour! The entire Ranger staff came out to visit with me and take photos. I went on a wonderful cave tour at the Lehman Caves area. One of the Rangers brought us up to the top of the mountains and sang for us!! Behind me on the mountaintop is a grove of the famous bristlecone pine trees-possibly the oldest trees on earth!! I hope you can visit this fantastic National Park soon!

I'm still in San Francisco! Super Ranger Eric showed me Park#292 Ft. Point NHS, and I earned a very special Jr. Ranger badge from the Bautista Anza Natl. Historic Trail!! Eric brought a cool costume representing the Trail and the founding of San Francisco! I loved the heavy sword! Thank you Eric!!!!

I spoke to all of the fantastic 4th graders at Coventry Elementary School in Crystal Lake about the National Parks and the Jr. Ranger program!! What great audiences they are!! My friend Mrs. Ferretti donated her copy of my book "America Can I Have Your Autograph" to the school. I am presenting the book to Teacher Mrs. Taylor- I hope all the kids enjoy reading and learning about my adventures in the Parks!!!!
