To the editor: Thank you for this informative op-ed about national park maintenance.

Recently I visited Yellowstone with family members, having made reservations months in advance. The park was so crowded that parking and access to toilets were difficult. Yosemite is equally overcrowded.

Along with caring for what we already have, Congress need to decide whether to 1) build more parking and toilets, or 2) limit the number of people who can enter the park each day. We need to make some choices.
