What an eventful week: first the flood on Wednesday, now today the demolition of the old Jackson Visitor Center at Paradise begins. I've been away for the past week at the National Interpreters Workshop in Portland, but will be leading a convoy of news media up to Paradise at 10:00 this morning, and hopefully checking out the repair work at Kautz Creek later today. I'll try to post some pictures this afternoon.
Meanwhile, the above is the live webcamera shot of Paradise. Here's the direct link for current images: http://mms.nps.gov/mora/cam/west.jpg
Update: Also check out this great short article on the National Parks Conservation Association's blog about the history of the building.
