The National Parks - America's Best Idea, Episode 1

Just finished watching the first disc of the Ken Burns documentary and it's exactly what I hoped it would be. I'm going to savor the rest of the episodes.

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountian parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.
-John Muir
