I experienced 10 of America's National Parks and monuments in the autumn of 2001, and they are stunningly beautiful. This is the first quilt in a planned National Parks series.  At Yosemite National Park, deep in the Tolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias, these dogwood autumn leaves amazed me with their subtle pinks, pale greens and vivid whites against the dark of the evergreen foliage, almost as if  rebelling against the coming of winter. I wanted to capture that combination of subtlety and strength, mystery and revelation.
