Disappointing Quality and Content

"This turns out to be a dvd which emphasizes activities like rock climbing (who cares) over the beauty of these two beautiful parks. There is non-stop chirpy narration from a guy who's voice you will recognize immediately from programs on cable nature/travel channels.
The camera moves with lightning speed over the scenery, but dwells on things like sneakers.
Finally, if this is blu-ray, its the worst quality I've ever seen.
All-in-all, a real disappointment.
Two Classic American Parks

"This was a very professionally executed Blu-ray DVD. The Blu-ray quality really brings out the vivid color, and panoramic beauty that make up both Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks. This DVD also provides some useful tips on where to hike, what to wear (briefly), and what to be aware of (flash floods etc.). This is a wonderful part of our country, and this Blu-ray DVD really justifies that."
The next best thing to being there

"Having recently visited both Zion and Bryce National Parks-this Blu-Ray qualifies as the next best thing to actually being there. The picture quality is outstanding and goes a long way to showcase the natural beauty of both parks. Bryce Canyon's colorful hoodoos look especially breathtaking in hi-def.
Another reviewer criticized the fact that a large portion of the video is dedicated to things like hiking gear, etc. and I would agree with this criticism. I would've rather they spent that time highlighting the beauty of the parks and the various hot spots in more detail. After all, the hi-def visuals are what make Blu-Ray the preferred format for this type of program and info on hiking gear is not what the typical viewer paid to see.
A nice included bonus on this Blu-Ray though is "Secrets of the Southwest". Being very partial to the Southwest in general (the most beautiful part of our country in my opinion) I was pleased to see it showcased in such detail and with such reverence. Not only did they cover popular locales such as the Grand Canyon-but also showcased other, less widely known places of interest off the beaten path. The lengthy "Secrets of the Southwest" bonus program alone was worth the price of the Blu-Ray."
