America's Greatest Idea: the National Parks


I'm enjoying the Ken Burns documentary on "The National Parks: America's Greatest Idea" this week. It has been the joy of my life and career introducing these precious places to several thousand of my students over the last twenty years. If you wish, you can take my photographic tour of the national parks of the American West here. It should be accessible even without a facebook account.

I have been to only a few of the great parks out west. Thank you for sharing your photographs, I find them moving. They motivate us to plan our next trip. Bob

I think the National Forests and all of Nature should be preserved, especially in areas where the building has gone out of control. We need some trees and "green" stuff around...or we will go totally mad.
