first state national monument

i grew up in delaware. so for years i heard about how we were the only state that didn't have a national park. that always made sense to me as delaware didn't seem to have anything good enough to qualify. i mean, no one goes to the grand canyon and says, "this got to be a national park? what about old swedes church?!?!?!"

but that was before the first state got itself a VPOTUS. and so senator joe, as he was known when i was growing up (or "hunt's dad" after i reached 7th grade), made this happen. they still all seem pretty lame to me. but at least that's one less thing for first staters to gripe about.
