The plight of being a park ranger …
And being stuck in a visitor center.
The song as sung by Bobby Angel
Nobody knew that better than Ranger Rudi.
And nobody knew its history better either.
A photographic memory and reading a lot didn’t hurt. But mostly it was his penchant for delving into deep conversations about with anyone he met.
History was never a closed book with Ranger Rudi.
You rarely saw the man without a book in hand, dog eared at various spots. His pursuit of history has been a life-long never ending quest.
