Fake teepees and brochures with fierce looking Grizzly Bears – as John Stossel would proclaim, ‘give me a break!’ While I thoroughly enjoyed my hikes and the GNP along with the amazing majestic beauty, there wasn’t a day and more often when I didn’t feel for those that were/are kicked to the curb for greed and financial benefit.
Really? The brochures advertising a fierce bear, yet they kill them when the bears, (who have more right to this land than we do), come into contact with humans. If they don’t kill them, they shoot them with rubber pellets. Seriously? Does anyone else see a paradox here? And the natives? Yes, there are fake teepees all around. It must make the natives disgusted and sad as well. Sure, the White people preserved the park but they could also preserve human dignity and integrity.
That is all…or, I’ll be ranting. :(.
