There may be few opportunities in life when one can experience the wonder of deep space and deep time. But, when given the chance, they are opportunities worth taking. Lying under the dark sky, almost completely free of light pollution, one can by overtaken with awe by the vastness of the milky way. Coming across a petrified tree or a fossil that once shared the same ground 100,000 million years ago is a sensation of marvel. Both of these fantastic events can take place at many of our great nations National Parks. This Earth we all share, however, must remain sustainable if humans are to continue to appreciate all of the greatness it has to offer.
