They don't make them much like this anymore...
2 April 2008 | by sisnbud8891See all my reviews

Its really a shame that they don't write shows like this one any more. I was only 11 when it came out, but my Dad and I loved this show! One of the memorable things about it was the theme song, by the late John Denver. It was really beautiful and I wish I could find it on a cd but have never been able to. Yosemite National Park is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to (just visited there two summers ago for the third time) so this was a big draw to me as well. I was also a fan of the show Emergency! so having Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe as guest stars was a real plus. It was a nice, wholesome and charming show and I would love to be able to find it on DVD some day. Though it was short lived, it is a cherished childhood memory of mine.
