It has been said that the national parks are our country's best idea. Certainly they are something worth celebrating on this 100th anniversary year. Having lived in countries where there are not parks with such open accessibility, we can certainly say they are a grand heritage. Now PBS is airing their series by Ken Burns called "The National Parks" celebrating the national parks! You can catch episodes on your local station (find yours here ) or you can watch them online for a limited time here.

We, Harley and Abby, are the parents of 7 boys and 1 girl whom we regularly drag into any and every national park we come near to. We love our parks and know that the only chance we have of keeping and maintaining this priceless resource is to give our children a love of them too.
