Celebrating the US National Park Service  though books, film, music, and memories +NationalParkService  #travel  +Caroline Herring 
Is your favorite National Park Service site one of the well known places, Yosemite or Yellowstone, perhaps? A site of history such as Gettysburg or Chickamauga or the African American Meeting House? In the heart of a city, like Faneuil Hall, in a dry desert like Chaco Canyon, or a spot connected with water, such as The Everglades or Crater Lake?

June, July, and August of 1964 in Mississippi. Deep south, deep...

Seven albums to explore, from bluegrass to blues to Alberta to Ireland to the Silk Road...
+The Gloaming +Rounder Records #MariaDunn #KenWhiteley #IvasJohn #SamBush #SilkRoadEnsemble #MIchaelMartinMurphey
Well traveled roads, new horizons, unexpected bridges connecting across cultures and places: connection, whether new or old, to place, person, or idea is a thread that runs through the work of musicians on seven very different albums.

From the Adirondacks to the Cascades, from the Wind River Range to the Catskills, from the Sangre de Cristos to the Wasatch, mountain landscapes across the United States offer views and vistas that hold ideas of change and of what is lasting. For musicians Amy White and Al Petteway, the southern Appalachians and the Blue Ridge in North Carolina form both inspiration and backdrop for what they create.
