People in Yosemite: A TimeLapse Study

Below is a fabulous timelapse video of Yosemite National Park, with a special focus on people. I’m a sucker for timelapse videos, but this one is beautifully shot and intriguing.

As you know, I’m a big fan of the National Park System and wholeheartedly agree that it’s in serious contention as America’s Best Idea. And while I understand many of the problems that park resources face, particularly in the face of overwhelming visitation, I also know how fundamental and formative a park experience can be – particularly for youth.

And with that thought in mind, here’s the video:


Kudos to YosemiteSteve for putting together such a great video. Be sure to check out his Yosemite Nature Notes series.

  1. The Koyaanisqatsi of Yosemite! That’s why I’ve only been to the valley in summer one time (and thought I’d lost my mind!).

    Shuttle systems have worked well in other parks. I like the idea of banning day-tripping cars from the valley, but then where would you build the massive parking garage outside the valley?

    Thanks for posting this, Scott.
