This time of year as we ride road bikes along the creamy smooth highways of Dane County. From one township to the next it’s vast fields of tall green corn plants as far as the eye can see.

With ours heads tucked in the draft stream keeping pace with the summer training schedule the last thing anyone’s thinking about is the soil beneath our spinning tires. It’s not just dirt you know. Earlier this summer during the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride Colorado I met a guy, a scientist who succeeded in changing how I’ll think about soil forever.

We’re so pressed for time that we fail to think about the nutritional value of what we eat. Racing through the drive-thru window of fast food restaurants we pack faces with hamburgers and tacos loaded with fat, salt and empty carbohydrates. And worse than that, we really have...

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="255" caption="Quang-Tuan Luong"][/caption] In most films by Ken Burns like the Brooklyn Bridge, Jazz, The Civil War or Baseball he uses historical archive photographs that show us snap shots of time long past. And though there are plenty of old photos in his latest film “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” Burns also uses modern images taken by naturalist photographer Quang Toan Luong. Luong’s images feature prominently in Burns’ National Parks film series due to premiere on PBS station nation wide in late September. Having visited all...

Interview, National Parks, Podcast, Yosemite / 03.06.2009

The new PBS film series “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” enjoyed its world premiere at the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride Colorado.  Festival attendees had the opportunity to see all 6 episodes of this 12-hour Ken Burns documentary on the big screen. Not at all once but over three days. As you can imagine the film lived up to expectations. The most beautiful landscapes of North America in the wilds of the west were the perfect backdrop to portray the history of our wonderful National Parks. Though Ken...

Greg Mortenson was eager to make a difference. It didn’t matter that he was just one guy working alone. He got it into his head that he was going to build a school for the children of a remote village in the high mountains of Pakistan. But what Mortenson didn’t realize was that even with the best of intentions his well meaning plans to selflessly help others would meet only with frustration and failure. It wasn’t until he discovered the collective power of cooperation that he would meet and exceed...
