Creators Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty spent 19 days shooting and over three months working on the video originally expected to only take a weekend to produce. “We wanted to create something that would showcase the entire place, not just one location,” said Delehanty. “To show someone how beautiful Yosemite is.”
But we think the video has done much more than just showcase the park's natural beauty. With over 2.5 million views in the last four months, we're sure it has already inspired people worldwide to simply go enjoy mountains anywhere.
Neill and Delehanty hope to expand this unique project to new locations. Check out their website to learn more about their efforts.
*On the first of every month, we’ll take a little time to pay tribute to what we think is one of the most awe-inspiring things out there: Mountains. It might be a photo, video, collage, painting, poem, etc. ... just a little something to say, "Hey, mountains, you're awesome!"
