Teaser Tuesday (7 February)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly event in which people share tidbits from their current reads, hosted by Should Be Reading.

Down at the beginning of the new road, at park headquarters, is the new entrance station and visitor center, where admission fees are collected and where the rangers are going quietly nuts answering the same three basic questions five hundred times a day: (1) Where’s the john? (2) How long’s it take to see this place? (3) Where’s the Coke machine?  Progress has come at last to the Arches, after a million years of regret. Industrial Tourism has arrived.

p. 45, Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness, Edward Abbey

    Interesting teaser there. Mine is from Edmund Morris' 3rd biography of Theodore Roosevelt: http://eyesandearsblog.blogspot.com/2012/02/teaser-tuesday.html
