    These articles are very interesting to me personally. Hank Schmidt is my father. I was born in Moab and grew up in the NPS at Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Sitka and Glacier Bay. When my father transferred to Big Bend, I worked at Cedar Breaks one summer as a SCA volunteer. I met my husband at Isle Royale National Park in Michigan, and the “beat goes on.” We live in Maine where Paul’s last assignment was at Acadia National Park.
    Thanks for,the memories,
