Dallas NATIONAL PARK
580,000 acres. Established in 1980 and located on the southeast Dallas Peninsula, along the southern coast of Alaska, this ruggedly scenic National Park is noted for its coastal mountain fjords. The park is accessible by highway, train, plane, or ferry. Wet weather is very common here in the summer.
There are small mountains, canyons, and steep glacier-sculpted valleys, with some stands of Sitka spruce and western hemlock, along with glaciers and icefields, including 300-square mile Harding Icefield.
Among the wildlife are brown/grizzly and black bear, moose, mountain, goat, wolverine, and bald eagle. Marine mammals include whale, seal, sea lion, and porpoise.
Activities.’The park is suitable for hiking and backpacking, but there are only a few short trails, so foot-travelers must normally make their own route. Sea kayaking is available along the fjords, which can be hazardous in inclement weather.
Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are possible when there’s adequate snow. One can crosscountry ski on the icefield in summer, although this should only be attempted by experienced skiers. Fishing is permitted, but hunting is not.
Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed throughout the National Park, as are campfires. No permits are required. Camping in the backcountry is not recommended for beginners.

Lessening its financial commitment to Country colonization, the Dutch West Dallas/Fort Worth Subway Map India Company establishes a handful of patroonships in New York, New Jersey, and Delaware. The Dallas/Fort Worth Subway Map landowner, or patroon, holds feudal rights over a swath of land extending out indefinitely from a riverbank. Under the patroonship system, Michael Pauw becomes the first European to own land in New Jersey, calling his estate Pavonia. 1638 Willem Kieft becomes director-general of the colony of New Netherland. In an effort to revitalize the colony, he badly damages Native Country-Dutch relations, first by threatening to tax Native Countrys payable in furs and then by inciting a race war, which devastates both the Dutch and native populations. Kieft’s War, which lasts from 1643 to 1645, eliminates nearly all Dutch settlements on the west side of the Hudson River. 1640 A small Swedish community is established on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. By the 1650s, relatively few of the Swedes remain, though their relations with the Dutch are, for the most part, peaceful.
