Gulf Islands National Seashore Still Recovering
Its been months since the 2005 hurricane season ended, yet life at Gulf Islands National Seashore still has not returned to normal. On Santa Rosa Island, for example, the Fort Pickens Road still hasn't been rebuilt...since it was wiped out by Hurricane Ivan in September 2004 and again by Tropical Storm Arlene in June 2005.
To get a good idea of the "state of the park" as it struggles to get back on its feet, check out this story in the Pensacola News Journal. It's a pretty good eye-opener.
