Maybe people will start to see why this all matters

 

A woman tries to land a tent site at a campground near Grand Teton National Park. When the ranger tells her she’s too late to get any prime sites she responds with, “It’s like I can’t get here early enough! It hasn’t always been like this.” The ranger explains that COVID has made for a busy season. The parks are bringing lots of people who want to explore even if they’ve never hiked a day in their life. The woman's frustration gives way to an optimistic take, “At least people are getting out here. That’s the way it should be. Parks are for everyone.” The ranger closes their chat with a hope that this busy season will create some unifying patriotism and a change in a way we treat our planet.
