Film presents a celebration of life, captured for a moment through the film-makers' skilful camera work. Highly recommended for travel and natural history collections.


Breathtaking valleys, gouged by glaciers. Dizzying waterfalls. Soaring peaks. Yosemite's beauty is unique in all the world

"Highly recommended." - Library Journal

The magnificence of Yosemite is beautifully reflected in this film. The commanding cliffs of El Capitan, the world's most massive chunk of solid granite, stand opposite the towering Bridal Veil Falls, framing some of the loveliest vistas in the Yosemite Valley. Walk the High Sierras on the John Muir Trail, Tioga Pass and the Tuolumne Meadows. All this, plus ancient and stately forests of giant Sequoias, and abundant wildlife: mountain lions, mule deer, coyotes, black bear, and big horn sheep.

Review from Library Journal: Film presents a celebration of life, captured for a moment through the film-makers' skilful camera work. Highly recommended for travel and natural history collections.

Mountain man Joseph R. Walker was probably the first non-indian to see Yosemite, in 1833, but not until the California militia entered the valley rounding up Ahwaneechee Indians was the region discovered. In June 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, making it a California State Park. It became famous through the writings of Horace Greely and the efforts of John Muir. Cinematographer Dennis Burkhart captures in this video the magnificence of Yosemite Valley (El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome), the High Sierra (John Muir Trail, Tuolumne Meadows, Tioga Pass), and the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias. The camera catches the wildlife that roams the 1,170 square miles of Yosemite, I.e. the mule deer, mountain lion, black bear, coyotes, bighorn sheep and the rare peregrine falcon. This video reveals why 3.8 million visitors come each year and stand before awe-inspiring panaramas they will never forget.
