America's Best Idea

America's Best Idea

Back in the day camping was cheap entertainment for large families.  My dad could fit five kids in a Volkswagen bug (before seatbelt laws) and we'd inch up Golden Gate Canyon.  When the car began to roll backwards, that's when we'd stop and pitch our tent.

Consequently, I am a big armchair traveler and have visited many of the 392 national parks via video and just a few in person. My favorite production produced by Ken Burns was shown on PBS last year and is available at the library: The National Parks: America's Best Idea. I have also been fortunate to visit many parks in person. Given that my bucket list is r-e-a-l-l-y long, I use the library's books and travelogues to help me prioritize my trips. Next up, Acadia National Park! Living in landlocked Colorado, I am looking forward to seeing the drama of the Atlantic ocean. Happy trails!
