'Yellowstone is undeniably beautiful, but I began to notice an aura akin to that of an amusement park the farther in we drove. Though it was nowhere near as crowded as during the peak season, droves of tourists tooled down the roads. The majority of these people never left their car. If they did, it was only to walk briefly along the roadside, snapping pictures.'

'Although the attention paid to these issues seems to be growing daily by an increasingly informed public, SeaWorld continues to deny — despite the evidence — that trainers assume an inappropriate amount of risk and that the welfare of its killer whales is compromised by captivity. The issue is not whether SeaWorld has world-class facilities, as it insists at every turn. The issue is whether the care and environment SeaWorld can provide its killer whales can meet their needs and whether trainers left to administer the care can do so safely.'

'It was now Friday the 13th, which, I’m fairly certain, is not a good day to camp in bear country.’

'In 1877, when little thought was given to environmental preservation elsewhere, Yellowstone (the first national park in the world) was recognized as an irreplaceable natural treasure.'
