Great Circle National Park Series – Conclusion and Index

BLOG #26, SERIES #4
WEDNESDAYS WITH DR. JOE
GREAT CIRCLE NATIONAL PARK SERIES
CONCLUSION AND INDEX
July 3, 2013

At long last, it is done! The dream that began by Bob and Lucy Earp, and Connie and I, watching two riveting PBS series: Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan’s National Park Series and Christine Barnes’ National Park Lodges Series. So impressed were we by those two series that we decided to visit those parks and stay in those park lodges ourselves. Took us two years to pull it off.

The series was also carried during the last couple of years by The Country Register issues in Colorado, Minnesota, and New Mexico.

But for those of you who haven’t followed along with us from week to week, we have created this index so you can check out the segments you missed.

Suffice it to say, that we consider this Great Circle to be, far and away, the greatest concentration of national park wonders and historic national park lodges on the planet.

Do let us know if you think we ought to reprint these blogs in two books so that you could carry them with you from park to park. Would you buy them if we did?

Here they are, according to date posted:
