Americans often visit other countries to see spectacular views and to get back with nature. But do you know that America is rich in such places? You don’t need to go out of the country and look far. Look around America!
1. Yosemite, California
Yosemite (translated to ‘killer’ in Miwok) refers to the name of the rebel tribe that was driven out of the area. Prior to the event, the place was called Ahwahnee (big mouth)by the indigenous people.
In 1984, Yosemite National Park was designated as a World Heritage Site. Almost 95% of the park is wilderness and supports biological diversity. The park is home to 160 rare species of plants, giant sequoia groves, and five major vegetation zones. Its geology consists of granite cliffs, mountains, glaciers, clear streams, and lakes. Yosemite’s scenic panoramas and U-shaped valleys are what attracts the tourist. In 2016, it had set a record for surpassing 5 million visitors, a first in history.
