Often we view of US Forest Service, National and State Park Rangers as glorified guides, park greeters and check-in clerks. They are in truth the front line of search, rescue and law enforcement with in our State Parks, National Parks and Forests.
On January 01 2020 Margaret Anderson was mortally wounded (murdered) in the line of duty in Mt. Rainier National Park. Wife of Ranger Eric Anderson, mother to Anna (3) and Katie (1) she “was living her Dream” when she was shot at a road block within the park.
Whenever we visit our State Parks, National Parks and U.S. Forests let us take a moment to remember those who protect the sacred spaces set aside by our forefathers.
Enjoy the Trails and respect the Rangers who keep them safe.
Love to All, Lee
