Thanks for sharing the link, Gary.

I was lucky to see a sneak preview of footage from "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" in January at Outdoor Retailer. I was even luckier to hear Burns speak:

Ken Burns was the guest speaker at the Outdoor Industry Association's breakfast at that OR. I think he is fantastic and very thoughtful, and obviously the subject matter is of great interest. I've heard him speak a couple times and have always been impressed. Before a journalism lecture several years ago, I even got to talk Red Sox baseball with him.

I'll be reminding people on Trailspace about this documentary prior to its September 27 debut on PBS.

Thanks for the link to get people interested.
