OutWest Hour Show #27 National Park Adventure

OutWest Hour Show #27 - June 1, 2019
Join me, Bobbi Jean Bell host of the OutWest Hour, for a "National Park Adventure" that takes us from Eastern California to Wyoming and Arizona, and on to Northern California. Our trail mix is one part Death Valley, one part Yellowstone, one part Grand Canyon and one part Yosemite. Imagine you are enjoying this savory snack as the sun rises, or sets, or under a full moon and star studded sky. Grab your favorite beverage, (I suggest water) put on your best hiking boots, and sun protection as we are leaving the famous Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley.

Our musical journey starts and ends with "Ghost Riders in the Sky" written by Park Ranger Stan Jones in 1947 while working at Death Valley National Monument. Little did he know that he composed one of the most recorded Western songs of all time.
