We love projects that Inspire the outdoors. More Than Just Parks does just that. Their video’s are simply beautiful and breathtaking.

More Than Just Parks is a project started by brothers and filmmakers Will Pattiz & Jim Pattiz, founders of Sea Raven Media. This project was born out of their love for the National Parks and enthusiasm for engaging multimedia. The goal of our project is to share the wonders of our national parks with as many people as we can, thereby ensuring their continued protection and enjoyment for generations to come.

This video is the culmination of more than two weeks spent exploring Joshua Tree National Park. We chose Joshua Tree because of its unique landscape. Its immense boulder piles, colorful cactus fields, endless desert expanses, and unusual Joshua trees make for a spectacular setting.

Our journey started in the Joshua tree fields of Black Rock Canyon. From there we hiked, camped, backpacked, and drove all around the park, ending up where our journey began. Scroll down to learn more about our journey through the park including filming locations, equipment we used, photos, and more.
