The Best of Magnificent Yosemite National Park


Enjoy two minutes of the sublime grandeur that defines Yosemite National Park.

No one would deny that Yosemite National Park is an incredible natural wonder. As the official Park Service page indicates, in "its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more."

There are a lot of wonderful videos of Yosemite on the Internet. That is to be expected, because it's nigh impossible to tire of seeing the amazing sights the area has to offer.

No matter how many times you see El Capitan, the Giant Sequoias, Yosemite Falls or Half Dome, the magic never wanes.

This brief teaser for National Geographic Channel's "America's National Parks" series presents the kind of incredible, high quality filmmaking and imagery that National Geographic is known for. The series is an ode to the celebration of the National Parks System, which turns 100 years old this year.

You can catch the entire episode, The Best of Yosemite, on the National Geographic Channel, along with video portraits of other National Parks like Olympic and Everglades. The series will continue to run and will also be featured in National Geographic Magazine issues.
