These Short Videos of America’s National Parks Might Inspire a Road Trip

Brothers Will and Jim Pattiz are celebrating the centennial of the National Park Service in their own unique way. Their project, More Than Just Parks, is an attempt to create a short video of every national park. Each video is intended to capture the unique spirit and beauty of each park, partially by using time-lapse.

“It was like going to another planet,” Jim tells Wyoming Public Media Statewide Network of his first time visiting the American West. “Especially when you go into these national parks and you can find these just amazing landscapes that you can’t find anywhere else. And each park is unique, so that idea of that was something we wanted to share with as many people as we could…If we make them really short anybody can watch them at basically any time, and they can get inspired to actually get out and experience these places for themselves.”

So far they have produced videos of 8 different parks.
