Transcendent Moments

A great story told by a great storyteller…Shelton Johnson. Imagine taking a hike with him through Yellowstone, Yosemite or other. The type of moment he describes in this clip, where everything comes together for a split second that seems to last forever, is all too rare. I can only remember one for certain…experienced while driving through the New Mexico mountains after a long hike.

This clip is from the Ken Burns series The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.
