O.A.R.S. recently released a video that they call 100 Years, A National Park Love Letter.  It puts the words of Theodore Roosevelt over video of some of the greatest natural places in the U.S.

Roosevelt Said


“There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of wilderness, but it was here that the romance of my life began. There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, the groves of the giant sequoias and redwoods, the Canyon of the Colorado, the Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Three Tetons; and our people should see to it that they are preserved for their children and their children’s children forever, with their majestic beauty all unmarred. Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it.”

— Theodore Roosevelt
