Bring home this must-have for fans of our national parks! This 3 DVD special collection includes: Disc 1: Marvel at Yellowstone's many scenic wonders: See the steamy balconies and terraces nature sculpted in Mammoth Hot Springs. Witness the grandeur of magnificent Old Faithful. Be mesmerized by the beauty of Yellowstone Lake, Hayden Valley, and the petrified trees on Specimen Ridge. Visit sputtering, bubbling, hissing Norris Geyser Basin, scene of the park's greatest thermal activity. View the awesome Grand Canyon of Yellowstone from the commanding prospects of Inspiration Point and Artist Point. Discover the rich history of Yellowstone's earliest days, including the original Indian inhabitants, and first explorers. Encounter the wildlife as only a camera can capture it, and relive the variety of summer and winter activities that bring visitors back again and again. Disc 2: And from soaring rock formations to the raging whitewater rapids of the Colorado River, marvel at the majesty of the Grand Canyon! For an exhilarating experience, try whitewater rafting or take the slow and steady route on a pack-mule trip. Day trips to the Havasupai Indian Reservation, Lake Powell, and Zion National Park are also included. More than 2,000 years ago, the Anasazi Indians lived in this region. This program includes an exclusive segment on Shaman's Gallery, where many Anasazi rock paintings have been preserved. Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed the Grand Canyon a national park in 1908, saying "do nothing to mar its grandeur, keep it for your children, for your children's children, and all who come after you." Disc 3: Immortalized by photographer Ansel Adams and championed by naturalist John Muir, Yosemite is the most awe-inspiring national park of them all! In addition to fishing, cross-country skiing and even golfing, the park offers exciting rock-climbing opportunities on the faces of such peaks as Half-Dome and El Capitan. Visit Devil's Postpile National Monument and two more national parks - Sequoia and King's Canyon - just a few hours away. The program also captures many images of the diverse wildlife that roams the vast 1,170 square miles of Yosemite National Park: mile deer, mountain lions, black bears, coyotes, bighorn sheep and the rare peregrine falcon. With all these natural riches, it is small wonder that Yosemite continues to thrive as one of America's most popular national parks.
