must-see TV

In my experience, there generally aren't a lot of great TV shows to watch on Sunday nights.

Not so this weekend!

On Sunday, PBS will be premiering the first of 6 parts of a new documentary film by Ken Burns ... The National Parks: America's Best Idea. I can't wait! I love our national parks ... and it was thrilling to visit 5 of them in Utah this year (see my blog posts from late March & early April). To me, the parks are special places, and it looks like this film will really capture that.

So I'll be tuning in to PBS all next week, I don't want to miss a minute of this film! Please let me know your thoughts on it ... and what is your favorite national park?

Sounds like an awesome series of programs - would love to see that - hopefully I'll be able to get a dvd of it at some point. In our 4 years of travelling I wholeheartedly agree - the BEST thing about America are the most stunning national parks. Too difficult to pick a favourite - we got to maybe 30 of the NPs and countless Nat Monuments, Historic Sites, Rec areas etc. But I'm with you and thinking somewhere in Utah....Enjoy the Program!
