NORWALK, Conn. — Noted documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, his collaborator Dayton Duncan and Connecticut-based Tauck Tours are partnering to create two national park-themed, motorcoach-based tours for next year, according to the USA Today.

The first, a 10-day trip called "Spirit of the Desert," will be offered May 15 through October 15 and include stops at Utah parks, including Bryce Canyon, Zion and Capitol Reef plus the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Another 10- day tour will concentrate on Civil War sites in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

Burns, who created a six-episode PBS series on National Parks in 2009, will ride along on the tours. For the full story, click here.
