In the summer of 1956 my father packed up our whole family in the station wagon and we headed west from New York to visit the National Parks. His mother had taken him west by train during the 1930's and he wanted to share the wonder of the National Parks with us as she had with him. We camped and drove for 7 weeks visiting more then 20 parks along the way and having the time of our lives. Ken Burns special on our National parks could easily have been about our family as we look back with wonder at the magnificent beauty of our countries National Parks. Support of the National Parks Conservation Association is my way of insuring that other families will have the same opportunity to marvel at the beauty of our wonderful country's National Park system for many generations to come.
