Reader Participation Day: Which Songs Do You Connect With National Parks?
Are there one or more pieces of music that remind you of a national park – or a park experience?
Some compositions, such as Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite, have clear connections to a park. Others, such as "Rocky Mountain High," might bring to mind a specific park - or a whole state with lots of great parks.
A quick Google search will turn up a surprising number of tunes with park connections. Not many of us have likely heard the Disney long playing album, Songs of the National Parks with Stan Jones and the Ranger Chorus ... but this old-timer is still available from iTunes!
How about you? Do you have any favorite pieces of music that you associate with one or more parks, or just national parks in general?
If so, what are they ... and which parks do they bring to mind?
