Theodore Roosevelt Park covers 110 square miles in the North Dakota badlands. This view was alongside one of our hiking trails. When Roosevelt became President in 1901 he signed the Antiquities Act which proclaimed 18 national monuments. He established 5 national parks, 51 Federal Bird Reservations, 4 National Game Preserves and 150 National Forests. I am very thankful he had the foresight to preserve this land for our country.
