    Zion Canyon - Treasure of the gods Vod

    Zion Canyon - Treasure of the gods

    Kieth Merrill (1996)

    Zion Canyon: Treasure of the Gods relates both the history and legends of Zion Canyon, a spectacularly beautiful national park in Utah. As the film was originally shown in IMAX theaters, it was designed to be a treat for the eyes, and the detailed shots of sunlit sandstone canyon walls are truly gorgeous. The final segment of the film shows spectacular images of Nancy Feagin and Doug Heinrich climbing high above the rocky canyon floor, on Dead Horse Point.
