National Park Week

Saguaro National Park

Saguaro National Park

Our National Parks might be the best idea ever!  I live just north of the country’s first National Park, Yellowstone.  After traveling the world, I still think that Yellowstone is the most impressive place on earth.  Wildlife, mountains and geysers are just a few of the quick highlights.  But, here in the USA, we have so many other National Parks to explore.  I have filmed at a great deal of them, and every time I do, I fall in love with them for their own specific reason.  Yosemite’s massive granite walls, The Grand Canyons views, Death Valley’s spring wild flowers and Acadia’s misty shores.  And…that is just the short list!  These jewels are the most valuable resource we have in this country and it is a resource we can preserve and pass on to many more generations.  The purity and freedom that these lands contain is contagious to all that touch it. We have the opportunity to experience this at any time and the responsibility to share it.  The National Parks will live on forever, as long as we continue to value their pricelessness.

    Well said, Anderson……….
    their majestic diversities are unmatched.
    “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshineflows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” – John Muir 1901
    Thank you for sharing – the legacy you’ll leave is endless.
