In 1967 my father bought a Pontiac Catalina and a dingy old travel trailer and took his girlfriend, my brother and me on a road trip. Over the next 8 weeks we drove 13,498 miles, visited 51 parks, and saw wonders like geysers, redwoods, grizzlies, and the Summer of Love in San Francisco. The trip made an indelible impression, cementing my appreciation for the natural world and the American landscape. This summer Pamela and I hope to repeat the experience for our family.

Pamela: All You Need is Love

It’s hard to describe Cirque du Soleil’s Love. It is the most amazing show I have ever seen. I sat entranced from start to finish. The show seemed sprung from the wild imaginings of some great creative genius—like the Beatles—perhaps as John Lennon might have dreamed in those moments just before waking when your dreams are their most vivid. Colors, lights, images all enhanced and danced with the melodies of Beatle songs that you have thought you had heard a million times before but realized that until now you have never really heard them at all. This was definitely our 2010 Summer of Love experience.

  1. Lucky you guys to see that show. The documentary about the making of the show, "All Together Now," was sublime.
