When you enter my office at the Department of Justice, the first thing you see is a large poster of Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park, Utah.  I love our system of National Parks, but Zion is one of my very favorites and I have visited it multiple times.  I am proud of my hike up Angel’s Landing and the poster reminds me of the majesty of those towering mountains with breathtaking beauty.  So it is appropriate that I am here, in Utah, speaking to an audience of fellow land-lovers, in the centennial year of the creation of the National Park Service.  I am just coming from Montana, where the Governor, Attorney General and I announced the settlement with ExxonMobil, to resolve the oil spill into the Yellowstone River, the same river that passes through our first National Park, created over one hundred years ago in 1872.
