Recreation is representative of the elevations between two places in Yellowstone National Park, both easily accessible from the road. In 2015, I stayed in the park on my own and toured it quite quickly, mostly by car, with Edward Abbey (and his assured disappointment in me) always in mind. “We have agreed not to drive our automobiles into cathedrals, concert halls, art museums, legislative assemblies, private bedrooms and the other sanctums of our culture; we should treat our national parks with the same deference, for they, too, are holy places.” —Edward Abbey
