Feedback during and after the two-hour event was enthusiastic. In the words of one viewer, "Thanks so much for making me realize what a rich territory for exploration exists so close to home," and "I would love to visit ALL of these places... I'll need to do some planning for an efficient circuit route to get them all in!!!"
