I hope something does come along in the same vein as the Ken Burns series. In the meantime, I suppose I, like everyone else, will do what I can.
Hope you don't mind that I've reversed your statements. That is exactly where I come out of the rat hole. Ken Burns did more for the interest in the USCW than "The Battle Cry of Freedom." A few more of those kinds of things could only be good.
I mean no disrespect to nature or to nature lovers. I shouldn't have said that. Heck, I live in Colorado for a reason. My frustration comes from the fact that I found Pamplin to be an awesome place. I had a great time there, plan to return, and have a lot of admiration for the people that run it and work there. I hope this re-structure does not hurt these people too bad.
I'm figuring I didn't make my intentions plain. In this grand landscape, there are far too many magnificent things to see to expect that a Pamplin is going to gain much attention. Just the sight of the Big Horn Range from Buffalo, Wyoming makes me weak in the knees. And the Big Horns, in the big picture, are in the peanut gallery. The trail through Lodi. The Road to the Sun.
I'm with you in lamenting that deserving attention to history is lamentably neglected, but it is understandable.
