You may have seen these National Parks before, but this version is different and not rerun of other recordings.
I think the Great Smoky Mountain dvd was the weakest one. The others, are like being there. If your television is
high definition and you have a blu ray player that can reproduce what these dvd offer, you may feel like dodging
the water at the water falls. The video quality is unbelievable. Jaw dropping. Great arm chair entertainment.
These park video are great the second time around. Not saying the picture quality of The Great Smoky Mountains was
poor, but the content was not as good. Until seeing this version of the Grand Canyon, I did not realize just how
Grand. The ancient cave art, was presented the best I had seen. Beating National Geographic and History channel
presentations.

Color and images are absolutely beautiful. Makes you feel like you've been there. And the commentary is very educational and interesting. :) We are planning to visit most of these national parks one day so these blu rays are a great intro-definately has us excited about our future vacation options.

gorgeous photography, lovely music and enough sheer beauty to make me want to get into the car!
Good info on history, geology by approachable experts who reinforce the desire to see these amazing places

This series gives a good overview of some of our national parks.
I purchased this series since my wife has difficulty walking, and wouldn't be able to tour these parks with me.
This became my only option for seeing the parks.
The photography is excellent, and I am happy overall with purchasing these.
The interviews with rangers and others tend to be lengthy, which is why I did not rae this EXCELLENT.
I would also like to have closed captioning, as my hearing is not the best and I use hearing aids.

Great information. sometimes a bit long. More of a national geographic special than travel info. All in all informative information

It explores the national parks in deep depth. It's the perfect travel guide before making your own plan. Love every espisode.

6 disc Bluray set, individually packaged (for clarification, since there seems to be some confusion.)

Note: This set has nothing to do with the BBC Yellowstone mini-series (currently on Netflix Instant).

Shot at 30 frames per second on what looks like a first gen HD camera (think evening news quality). The graphics/interface/titles/animations look like they were done by high school students.

Super disappointing. Return request for sure.

Just watched the tape on Yosemite and it was fantastic! It covered everything from history to geology to biology and great pictures, and also interviews with park rangers. Can't wait to watch the rest. Thanks

At my age (81) it is too late for much traveling. This series of films provides what I will miss at my age in life. You get close-up views such as are not even possible in a personal visit.

Has some good stuff, some boring stuff. I have been to many of these places and I think the video could have been spiced up a bit. It was more like sitting through a high school class film.
