Take In The Beauty Of Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks With This Trippy Time-Lapse

The Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks in the southern Sierra Nevada region of California are a place that anyone should try to visit if given the opportunity, and this mesmerizing and surreal time-lapse work posted by Sunchaser Pictures above exhibiting the parks only serves to reinforce the multitude of reasons why.

The video was shot and edited by Gavin Heffernan, whom we've featured previously for other time-lapse works highlighting locations of natural beauty.

"We arrived on the summer solstice of June 21st, 2014 and shot for 3 days and two nights," Heffernan writes. "Unlike the desolate deserts of shoots past, these locations were teeming with wildlife - from native trout running in the streams, to deer so tame they'd walk right up to you."

Click play above to take in a vicarious trip to the Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Afterwards, we'd highly recommend checking out the "making of" video from producer John C. Brookins, which we've included below.
