A NEW NATIONAL PARK

Maine now has America’s newest national park: Katahdin Woods and Waters.  It is officially a new national monument. That takes no Congressional action, unlike full park status.  The park was designated today by President Obama, and the shade of Teddy Roosevelt was far back in the mists of time, grinning and shaking a big stick.  This area is in the far north woods of New England, up against the Canadian border.
