America's Best Idea

There's a new documentary coming out on PBS starting Sept 27th for 6 nights. I am excited about it! Craig and I went to a preview showing in Kalamazoo Monday night and we listened to a park ranger from Sleeping Bear Dunes talk. I've always been fascinated by the National Parks and have dreamed of visiting them for a long time. We hope to head out west next summer to visit some. Anyway... this 12 hour documentary shows the beauty, history and so much more of the parks. Did you know there are 58 national parks in the US totaling more than 84 million acres? You can click here for the website and more info about the film. I encourage you to tune in. I know I will.

I am looking forward to this. We've had some great times at national parks - the Smokeys this past summer.

My favourite episodes were of the lodges in the Southwest Parks (Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, etc). So gorgeous! My friend and I are planning on making the loop trip :)
