Kudos to Boxer and McKeon for Wilderness Act

I recently was fortunate to go on a church-led trip to Yosemite National Park and experience its awe-inspiring beauty first hand.

Once we scaled the difficult hike up to Half Dome, we were rewarded by what we saw: majestic waterfalls, mountain ridges, and a wide array of lush green trees.

A sight like this really makes you appreciate nature in all its glory and want to keep it like that.

Thanks to Sen. Boxer’s and Congressman McKeon’s Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Wild Heritage Act, hopefully soon more beautiful wild places will be protected. Places as far away from me as the Hoover Wilderness Additions at the northeast border of Yosemite and as close to my home as Magic Mountain and Piru Creek.

So I want to throw my support behind Congressman McKeon and Senator Boxer for introducing this bill and moving this legislation forward. It will help preserve and protect some of nature’s greatest gifts for generations to see.

I can’t wait for the day that it finally becomes a law.
