From our trip to the Grand Canyon
PBS is running a wonderful series now called The National Parks: America's Best Idea by Ken Burns. I missed Episodes one and two, but watched number three last night. It makes me want to read about John Muir, Stephen Mather, and Horace Albright. It want to jump in the car and drive to Yellowstone and Glacier. Ok.. not going to happen.. but it's made me think. What National Parks, Monuments, Historical sites have I been to? What would I like to see? Maybe see isn't the right word. Soak up, become a part of, get lost in... experience. Each one is so special. A gem in their own right.
