America's National Parks

Even though the last of this year's free national park weekends just passed, some of the best weeks (no crowds, no heat, no mosquitos) are still ahead of us.

Lately, I've been wading through some of the reader photos submitted to Boston Globe's national parks photo contest , and wondering how Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone is so photogenic in every photo. amateur or not. All photos for the contest must be submitted by September 11, 2009. The grand prize winner will receive a signed copy of the new Ken Burns film, National Parks: America's Best Idea.

If you've got more time on your hands, here's a longer cut of it.
