A work of art.
LINDA K. ASHER
Congratulations to all who contributed talent and time to the super-fine Spring issue. I was especially taken with all three features: "Hidden Yosemite," for the helpful information provided; "Sacred Water," for bringing attention to one of many urban areas facing acute water shortages and ill-advised "solutions"; and most of all, "Wheels of Change," for the balanced reporting of mixing mountain biking into the nation's parks, and the eye-catching artwork of Dung Hoang. If those powerful illustrations have not already become huge, framed art pieces for sale and exhibition, they should be.
Christine Byl's account of "wintering over" in Healy, Alaska [Winter], is among the very best pieces of writing I have come across in any magazine--and I've been a magazine editor for 35 years. You put out a very good product.
As a new subscriber to National Parks, I have been very impressed with the quality of the writing, illustrations, and photography. I travelled the Natchez Trace for the first time in the fall of 2011, and it was a great treat to see it so well covered in the very first edition we received.
