    Great Parks of the West and Trains too - Travel Video.
    DVD. Client Denn Digital Camera. 75 Minutes. Perhaps the greatest array of natural wonders in the world is found in the western United States. Great Parks preserve them and open them to visitors. The world's single largest expanse of exposed granite comprises the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Five Great Parks are carved from its valleys and peaks. They include glaciers, great rivers, five of the world's 20 highest waterfalls, deep canyons, lakes, bold monoliths and the world's largest trees. Just west, on the coast, is the world's tallest tree in the "Avenue of the Giants" grove. Yellowstone's great variety of trees, rivers, canyons and meadows are picturesque settings for buffalo, bear, wolf and elk. Volcanic chambers below produce belching fumaroles, boiling mud pots, hot clear pools and numerous vents and geysers. In the southwest are Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Saguaro, and the Petrified Forest Parks. Ancient Native Americans flourished at Mesa Verde and Canyon de Chelly. Echoes of their past are present there in today's rich Indian culture. A bold land, in colorful motif and design, shows startling contrasts in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches National Park, Natural Bridges and the awe inspiring Grand Canyon. To the north are the remarkable vistas of Glacier Park and the rare temperate rain forest of Olympic Park. Mount St.Helens shows the volcanic past and present of the Pacific's Rim of Fire and reminds us that capricious nature can still awe and humble us. Much of this "Great West" was opened to settlers and industry by the railroads and a few of these trains still operate today. "The Durango-Silverton" in the Rocky Mountains, "The Skunk" crossing the Coastal Range and the "Grand Canyon Railway" are exciting examples.

    The Superliners: Twilight Of An Era - Travel Video.
    National Geographic. Before the days of jet travel, magnificent ocean liners such as the Queen Mary and the Normandie reigned over the Atlantic, setting standards of taste, luxury, and efficiency. They transported not only the rich and famous, but also soldiers during wartime, and emigrants seeking new lives in the land of opportunity. Luxury was defined in the early part of the 20th century by the Superliners. Now they are all but extinct. "The Superliners" takes viewers on a five-day journey aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2, the last superliner ever built. With 110,000 horsepower and 67,000 tons in mass, the QE2, launched in 1967, is just one of about a dozen such ships that existed as the largest moving manmade objects. Its 296th voyage westbound from Southampton to New York serves as a time capsule of a bygone era of travel and opulence. The United States, France's Normandy, and England's Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth are all explored in this 59-minute documentary. Significant for their engineering and nautical ingenuity as well as for their transport of tourists, immigrants, and soldiers, superliners were made obsolete by air travel, popularized during the mid-1960s. The interviews with crew members and passengers make for a nostalgic portrait of life aboard a liner on the high seas. 60 minutes.
