The majesty of the Grand Teton Mountain Range is beautifully on display in this moving and inspiring film three minute film. Watch it and be awestruck.
More Than Just Parks has created something very special. They spent almost a month filming the Grand Teton Mountain Range in Jackson Hole Valley and the foothills to obtain the spectacular images you see in this film.
The Grand Teton National Park covers nearly 500 square miles of pristine northwestern Wyoming wilderness. And here, in this three-and-a-half minute film, they've managed to capture the essence of what makes the park so amazing: The lakes, rivers, wildlife, forests and wildness that define the Grand Teton wilderness area.
Grand Teton National Park was legally established in 1929. The mountains are some of the most spectacular in the country, with an elevation of over 7,000 feet above the floor of Jackson Hole Valley. The elevation of the park itself ranges from 6,400 feet in the valley itself, to 13,770 feet at the summit of the Grand Teton.
In between there is a multitude of beautiful and wild environments, from wildflower covered meadows and pristine alpine lakes to cascading streams and huge boreal forests that are home to countless and diverse wildlife species.
The park also offers opportunities for visitors to engage in hiking, camping, fishing, climbing, boating, kayaking, photography and more. It truly is a wilderness paradise.
More Than Just Parks is a film project by brothers Will Pattiz & Jim Pattiz, who have combined their love of national parks with their filmmaking and multimedia skills. Time lapse photography of stunning landscapes and moving images of wildlife make this a film that you'll want to view over and over again.
