This was and is probably in my top ten favorite Sesame Street clips from when I was a tyke. The scenes look a lot like the area of rural Minnesota where I lived. When my daughter is this age I hope that, somehow, she has as much opportunity to experience nature as I did.
I don’t know for certain who did the background music, but I’m pretty certain it’s a Richard Harvey piece. They seem to have been kind of fond of him in PBS studios back in the eighties.
