- Airstream's second episode of the Portable Park series shines a spotlight on the Grand Canyon.
- A documentary filmmaking team from MacGillivray Freeman Films works their magic to deliver a spectacular overview of this national treasure.
- As America begins to slowly emerge from coronavirus lockdown, the luxury travel trailer manufacturer's suggestions for Grand Canyon campgrounds may be helpful for those seeking to get away for a socially distant camping trip.
The second episode of Airstream's Portable Park documentary series focuses the camera lenses of the Oscar-nominated team at MacGillivray Freeman Films on one of the seven natural wonders of the world: the Grand Canyon. The 277-mile-long, one-mile-deep gorge in northwestern Arizona is home to a diverse collection of wildlife, including the bald eagle, which uses the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River that runs through it as a winter home.
Breathtaking views of the canyon, displayed in high definition, should inspire even the most avid indoorsman to get out and visit the park. Drone footage shows rocky cliffs, roaring waterfalls, and adventure-seeking people on rafts. Animal cameos include salamanders and a rattlesnake; in another scene, a generations-old Native American cliffside dwelling can be spotted.
The most surreal scene comes at the end of the video, which shows a time-lapse segment of the darkening sky from the bottom of the canyon, with the bright stars twinkling in from the heavens. After watching the video, we're ready to pack up for a camping trip; if you are, too, Airstream has provided a handy site with recommendations on local campgrounds to help you plan your visit.
