It sounds strange, but it's true that in Telluride we look east during the sunset instead of west!
Also, something else I am excited about is tonight's premiere of The National Parks: America's Best Idea on PBS. This is a series of 6 two hour long episodes covering the history of the national parks up to 1980. I was fortunate to view three of them during the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival in May, as well as take part in Question and Answer sessions with director Ken Burns, park ranger Shelton Johnson, and photographer Quang-Tuon Luong. If you have any interest in the national parks system or personal stories of trips to the parks, don't miss it!
I also purchased the book from the series where I came across this beautiful quote from John Muir:
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while
cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
