    Great Parks of the West and Trains too - Travel Video.
    DVD. Client Denn Digital Camera. 75 Minutes. Perhaps the greatest array of natural wonders in the world is found in the western United States. Great Parks preserve them and open them to visitors. The world's single largest expanse of exposed granite comprises the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Five Great Parks are carved from its valleys and peaks. They include glaciers, great rivers, five of the world's 20 highest waterfalls, deep canyons, lakes, bold monoliths and the world's largest trees. Just west, on the coast, is the world's tallest tree in the "Avenue of the Giants" grove. Yellowstone's great variety of trees, rivers, canyons and meadows are picturesque settings for buffalo, bear, wolf and elk. Volcanic chambers below produce belching fumaroles, boiling mud pots, hot clear pools and numerous vents and geysers. In the southwest are Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Saguaro, and the Petrified Forest Parks. Ancient Native Americans flourished at Mesa Verde and Canyon de Chelly. Echoes of their past are present there in today's rich Indian culture. A bold land, in colorful motif and design, shows startling contrasts in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches National Park, Natural Bridges and the awe inspiring Grand Canyon. To the north are the remarkable vistas of Glacier Park and the rare temperate rain forest of Olympic Park. Mount St.Helens shows the volcanic past and present of the Pacific's Rim of Fire and reminds us that capricious nature can still awe and humble us. Much of this "Great West" was opened to settlers and industry by the railroads and a few of these trains still operate today. "The Durango-Silverton" in the Rocky Mountains, "The Skunk" crossing the Coastal Range and the "Grand Canyon Railway" are exciting examples.

Relive the Golden Age of Alpine Skiing-from 1940s Hollywood coming to Sun Valley, Idaho for lessons, to the birth of hotdogging in 1970s Aspen-with Classic Ski Films on DVD. Whether it was the first WWII training film for U.S. mountain troops, or the pageantry and power of the 1960 Winter Olympics, three extraordinary pioneering filmmakers captured it through the lens of history. John Jay Considered the grand-daddy of the modern ski-film road show, John Jay was a Rhodes Scholar whose prolific output and inveterate showmanship were the inspirations to an entire generation of newly minted skiers.

Thirty years and thousands of feet of film later, Dick Barrymore enjoys a global reputation as an itinerant artist whose motion pictures highlight every aspect of the sheer joy of skiing, from innovations in early equipment to the thrill of adventure and competition. Hanging up his camera in 1990, he decisively retired from ski-filmmaking while at the top of his game.
