Niagra on the U.S. side is still incredibly tacky--with almost no respite until you reach the view of the falls.

You were going to speak about the Berkeley campus. How was Olmstead involved in that.

Do you think one way to “manage” National Parks today is to impede reservation times and dates onto anyone who wants to visit? Sad, I believe.

What other countries have exemplary national park management?
Ellen Moody

I know that in the UK the National Trust has preserved large areas of natural beauty -- the lake district is one place.

Highly recommend Tony Horwitz's book Spying on the South following Olmstead's journeys through the South.
