This is my entry for “Y” in the Blogging A to Z Challenge. Throughout April I will be watching and reviewing a documentary movie from A to Z. This is the first”Y” documentary I’ve reviewed.
Title: Yellowstone: The World’s First National Park
Release Date: September 4, 2012
Director: Kenny James
Production Company: Mill Creek Entertainment
I’m fascinated with Yellowstone National Park, and one day I hope to go there. This film has low production values and feels like an introductory film for tourists at a park visitor center. All the same, the film focuses on the stunning landscape of Yellowstone, so the visuals are terrific. There’s a little bit about the history and flora & fauna of Yellowstone (as well as the Grand Tetons, and surrounding areas), as well as an aerial tour of the park. But the bulk of the movie is about the geology of Yellowstone, featuring the Yellowstone Caldera, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Artists Paint Pots, and the many geysers, fumaroles, and hot springs. National Park Service interpreters provide the narration.
What Can One Learn From Watching This Documentary:
Did you know that the Yellowstone Caldera completely destroyed the portion of the Rocky Mountains range that once passed through where the park is today? I didn’t!
