PBS National Parks
The wait is over, at least almost, tomorrow night Ken Burns documentary about our National Parks airs on PBS at 8pm. I can't wait to see it. I love the National Parks, we spent our honeymoon traveling from Grand Canyon to Bryce, to Zion, all the way to Yellow Stone, which I have to say is my favorite. I remember we were driving my convertible VW Cabrio through the prairies with the top down and buffalo everywhere, it was simultaneously terrifying and awe inspiring. We were suppose to go to Europe on our honeymoon but as we were married a week after 9/11, we weren't sure it would be safe to leave the country and threw this national parks trip together at the last moment, literally days before we were to go. Because of 9/11 many guest had cancelled their reservations and we were able to stay in the lodges on the park grounds and experience the parks practically deserted. It was an amazing trip, and one I strongly recommend. But until then watch this documentary and live vicariously.
P.S. I also have a huge crush on Ranger Shelton, watch the documentary and you will see why. He makes my knees tremble with his eloquence.
