As the national parks moves, Shenandoah is also not the heavyweight. This is quite gorgeous, to be certain about it, packed through the forests, waterfalls as well as overlooks, everything connected by the Skyline Drive that is winding through mountains of Blue Ridge. Yet, it is not the nature on scale of the parks such as Yosemite or the Glacier. However the filmmaker Ken Burns even says that it is not the specific point. Moreover, experience of national parks is not just the spectacular scenery of the nature, said burns. "It's those you see with them and also whose hand you are holding, during rim of Grand Canyon, and in the Yosemite, and at the Shenandoah National Park.
Moreover, Burns also shares complete touching story at first as well as just the road trip they took with their father. It is the year 1959, Burns was about 6 years old, and their dad even took them to Shenandoah. "They drove up in the clouds ... then he also scattered deer through his horn, then they stopped off in the little cabin. They also caught the salamanders. Then they will think that they saw the bear," recounts the Burns.
It may still remember warmth of the father hand as they walked again together, and also describing each tree, as well as plant, and also animal that they saw. It is only the magical time." AT the same time, Burns also says that the experience has left such kind of impression on them that some years later; they also recreated them with the 2nd daughter Lily.
Being the co-creator of PBS series of Best Idea of America at the National Parks, Ken Burns as well as his team spent months for filming in the national parks that is across United States.
