Yellowstone National Park

What I Did on My Summer Vacation

By Skip Mancini

It's back to school for kids across the High Plains, so I'd like to submit this audio essay about my summer travels.

As we revel in the centennial of the U.S. National Park Service, what better time to check out what Ken Burns's documentary calls "America's Best Idea?" Today's episode of Growing on the High Plains highlights our extraordinary trip to  Yellowstone National Park. 

As you would expect, the sights at this national treasure were so breathtaking and inspiring that, like the infamous cone geyser, I will remain "Old Faithful" to my dedication to conservation and sustainability.
