Two brothers spent more than three weeks in Zion National Park to put together a 4-minute video that shows some of the park's many vistas.
Filmmakers Jim and Will Pattiz, who are from outside Atlanta, spent 24 days in the park and shot footage at 16 different sites.
The stunning video is part of a project they started called More Than Just Parks, an attempt to draw awareness to the country's national parks. The Zion video is the sixth in their series.
"Zion is one of the most unique and singularly spectacular parks in the the national park system," Jim Pattiz said in an email. "Seeing it in the fall, with its brilliant display of yellow cottonwoods set against the dazzling Vermillion Cliffs of Zion Canyon is nothing short of amazing."
The brothers first visited a national park in 2012 and decided they wanted to share the beauty with as many people as possible. That sparked their quest to produce a video on all the national parks.
"We most definitely do plan on filming Canyonlands, Arches, Bryce, and Capitol Reef," Jim said. "Of those parks, I would say Capitol Reef might be the highest up on our short list."
