national parks: america's best idea
if you haven't seen ken burn's national parks series, you should really do something about it. i'm not kidding you, episode 5 made me cry it was so good. episode 1 made me plan a road trip down the west coast on hwy 101. who knows what the rest will bring, i might even give camping another shot (i really love NOT camping). so much history of america that i didn't know about and the people who worked so hard to make it possible for us all to enjoy.
