Time-Lapse: A Hypnotic Look at Voyageurs National Park

In the northernmost tip of Minnesota, Voyageurs National Park is a watery wonderland of pristine lakes, big fish, and incredible night skies. With a third of its area covered by lakes, the park is named for the fur-trading French Canadian voyageurs who paddled birchbark canoes in the 18th and 19th centuries. In this hypnotizing time-lapse, filmmakers Will Pattiz and Jim Pattiz capture the dancing northern lights and scenic beauty of Voyageurs National Park.
