David Ogden Stiers,
Mrs. Vincent Astor,
I absolutely love it! Extraordinary human stories behind the extraordinary beauty. Couldn't help watching it twice every night this week, thanks to WCMU, who broadcast each episode twice. Think I might catch it the third time in this weekend's marathon rerun!
What more can I add? I would love to hear Garrison Keillor's voice as he would be the best narrator for our national treasures (of which he is one himself).
Indeed, our National Parks are a place of love, as one commentator said so movingly in the film.
The history of our National Parks has enriched my appreciation of great nature with humanity... Enough talking, let's go to our National Parks now.
