The famous filmmaker Ken Burns will be in Anchorage, Alaska this Thursday evening talking about and previewing clips from his newest film:  The National Parks:   America’s Best Idea.  For more details, visit Alaska Geographic.

I was fortunate enough to spend 3 days with Ken and his crew in Kenai Fjords a few years ago while he was working on this film.  I gotta say Ken was a fascinating individual.  His creativity goes without saying, but he is a wonderful story teller with a hilarious sense of humor – we had lots of laughs on that trip.  If you find yourself anywhere near Anchorage on Thursday, hearing Ken speak, and seeing some of his film clips should be highly worthwhile!

  1. I was excited about his new film already, but knowing Aialik Bay will be included makes it even more exciting. (My family kayaked and camped overnight in Aialik Bay last summer.)

    So cool that you were involved too, Ron.

    Thanks Ben,

    You picked a great place to kayak and camp – especially if you hit decent weather. It will be fun to see this area in the film!

    Ron
