Spectacularly wild and iconic places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Everglades, the Redwoods, Canyonlands, and more are illuminated as never before with IMAX® 3D camera imagery. Audiences will drop into the adventure with world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker as he mountain bike rides, ice climbs, and river rafts his way through the nation’s mountains and canyons, then travel back in time to America’s most famous camping trip where President Theodore Roosevelt and renowned conservationist John Muir imagined a vast National Parks system that would preserve these national treasures forever.
