The United States of America is an enormous country full of amazing cities, but also wonderful nature. Today we would like to show you some of its most spectacular natural wonders.
Yosemite National Park
Located in California, it is one of the most popular parks in the United States. In 1984 it was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is best known for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, clusters of gigantic sequoia, and biodiversity. More than 95% of the park’s area is largely untouched by humans.
Grand Canyon National Park
Arizona’s Grand Canyon is definitely one of the most monumental works of nature in the world. Long at 446 km, 27 km wide and reaching a depth of 1800 meters, the canyon, sculpted 17 million years ago by the Colorado River, reveals two-billion-year-old rocks and overwhelms all its visitors.
Located in the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho Yellowstone is the oldest national park in the world. It is a remarkable place full of geological works of art. The park features famous geysers, hot springs, mud volcanoes, and waterfalls. It almost seems out of this World!
The exceptionally clear water of turquoise shade and white rocks both on the bottom and the coast make it look like a paradise island, but this tropical landscape is not even close to the sea or the ocean. The lake is located high up in the mountains – at an altitude of 1899 m in the Sierra Nevada. It is an incredible place in an unexpected area.
The second largest island of the Hawaii archipelago is also an exotic paradise. With incredible nature, forests, rivers, gorgeous beaches, volcanic landscapes and many wonderful species of animals and plants it is the perfect destination for all the nature lovers!
Glacier National Park
Located in the northwestern part of Montana, it covers an area of 4102 km² and two mountain ranges within the Rocky Mountains. In its area, there are several large and several hundred small glacial lakes. More than 1000 species of plants and hundreds of species of animals call it their home. There are also several dozen glaciers, from which the park took its name.
