The Night's FilmsChristmas in Yellowstone (54 minutes) - As snow falls and Christmas lights glow in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a holiday season of a different sort settles over the great winter world of Yellowstone, America's first national park and one of the greatest expanses of unspoiled nature and wildlife anywhere on Earth. Breathtaking landscapes frame intimate scenes as Yellowstone's diverse animal residents make their way through the most challenging season of the year, when nature's inhospitality is matched only by its serenity.
Now your family can journey deep into the snowy solitude and serenity of Yellowstone at Christmas, following in the footprints of red foxes, and spying on the predatory warfare of wolves and elk. From the unique crystals of individual snowflakes to the grand sweep of Yellowstone's Hayden Valley, this is a Christmas like no other. (Preview)
