Our family has always enjoyed visiting the wonderful National Parks here in the US, and have been fortunate to visit parks around the country. Over the years, we have seen so many beautiful places, and have returned to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain, and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks more than once. But our favorite park of all is Glacier National Park in Montana.
I confess, however, that in addition to the wonders of the park itself, I do have a personal connection to this park. My son Michael has been a Ranger there with the National Park Service for several years. With 2020 being such an ‘unusual’ year, we were not able to visit this summer. But a small team of rangers have just published a new podcast that takes us on an audio journey of the park, sharing stories of the land and the people that made GNP what it is today. You can almost smell the huckleberry!
So find your calm and immerse yourself in Headwaters, the new podcast from the National Park Service.
Season One: The Confluence
Headwaters is a public radio-style podcast by Glacier National Park, produced with support from the Glacier National Park Conservancy. By visiting familiar places, the show tells unfamiliar stories about the park. We travel to every major region of Glacier in search of confluences: places where nature and culture come together in unexpected ways.
Enjoy! ~ Diane
