It was all tears and chills for me... throughout the series...

...because of:

1) the starkness of beauty of our parks and

2) the startling fact that neither my family when I was a child, nor I as an adult, have ever been moved to experience that beauty first hand!

Moreover, besides the obvious informational and purple-mountain-magesties aspects, each Best Idea episode, for me, took on a cathedral-like format and became a veritable spiritual respite

I missed the final episode of the Ken Burns national parks series. When will it be re-run on tv?

Good article, I am planning on watching that series, as a photographer the National Park system is key to many photographers lively hood. I agree with the above comment on going to Yellowstone in winter... it must be great.

Now I want to go to Yellowstone in the winter. Big national park with nobody there. Sounds like a GREAT idea!

It's an awful job, going from park to park to park for years on end, but if anybody's gotta do it Ken Burns is a good choice. Looking forward to seeing all that awesome footage on PBS in spetember.
