Beauty and Greatness

and they belong to all of us.

If you haven't caught the show, there is a 6-part miniseries shot by Ken Burns on PBS showing this week - check your local listings OR view them online through October 9th.

The United States currently has 391 National Parks/Monuments/National Recreation areas. I've been to 33 that I can recall, I have lots of great memories from my various visits. How many have you been to, and do you have a favorite?

Thanks for reminding me, Stephanie!! I have been to so many state and national parks, and have enjoyed all of them. There's something silent and magical about preserved spaces, and I am grateful for the time spent and the company kept at each. I hope that this series reminds people why parks are vital to our identity as a country, and that more of us remember to introduce our children to them. Thank you! -kiki
