Spring is coming early in 3/4 of national parks, according to a new study. Awesome? Not so much. As flowers bloom earlier every year, it’s disrupting the link between the wildflowers and the arrival of birds, bees, and butterflies that feed on and pollinate the flowers.

Vine Creek Ranch at Death Valley National Park. Steady drought and record summer heat make Death Valley a land of extremes. Towering peaks are frosted with winter snow. Rare rainstorms bring vast fields of wildflowers. Lush oases harbor tiny fish and refuge for wildlife and humans. Despite its morbid name, a great diversity of life survives in Death Valley.
Located 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii, the National Park of American Samoa is the most remote unit of the National Park System and the U.S. National Park south of the Equator. The Park spreads across three islands, 9,500 acres of tropical rainforest, and 4,000 acres of ocean, including coral reefs. While remote, the islands of American Samoa, true to the meaning of the word Samoa (Islands of Sacred Earth), are welcoming and offer beautiful landscapes and centuries of culture and history.
Downloading Itineraries/Invoices from the Internet
When a reservation is booked, a flight "itinerary" is sent by e-mail (or faxed to disconnected users). Once the reservation has been ticketed, an "Itinerary/Invoice" is sent by e-mail (or faxed to disconnected users). The only difference between the "Itinerary/Invoice" and the "Itinerary" originally sent after the reservation is reserved is the Ticket Number, Cost of the Ticket, Transaction Fee, and Billing Remarks.
