The Earth is Beautiful

One day I want to go to as many National Parks as I can.  Here is a list of the top five National Parks that everyone should think about going to.  Each national park has a unique landscape that will make each experience new and amazing.  This list is all based on my opinion that I gained from the two websites that I will list below.

  • Yosemite National Park which is located in California
    1. The park became famous by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson being able to free climb the hardest rock climb on the planet because of the smooth granite wall.
    2. Located here is the highest waterfall in North America and world’s tallest granite monolith. Ralph Waldo Emerson said that the mountains here at Yosemite is “unmatched on the globe.”
    3. Glacier Point Road is a place trail that leads you to one of the most “spectacular vista in any national park.”
    4. These are what makes this National Park the number one park that you should put on your bucket list.
  • Yellowstone National Park which is located in Wyoming
    1. I went here with my family recently and was amazing how diverse the park is.
    2. There are mud pots, hot springs, geysers, canyon, and others located within the park.
    3. This is also the first piece of land to become a national park in the world.
    4. The park has one of the most famous landmark which is Old Faithful that is a geyser.
    5. There are about 67 species of animals that live here and specking from experiences you will be able to see a lot of wildlife with your own eyes.
  • Grand Canyon National Park which is located in Arizona
    1. This is the second most visited national park
    2. Not many people take the 9.3 mile hike down to the bottom because of how hard it is but the view gives you a whole new perspective of the canyon.
    3. The canyon is so vast and beautiful that this is a must-see view.
  • Channel Islands National Park which is located in California
    1. This park has unique wildlife and vegetation that you cannot see anywhere else.
      1. For example, island fox, island deer mouse, and yellow-blooming corepsis.
    2. Not many people visit this undeveloped island so the experience could be a very quiet and special.
  • Denali National Park which is located in Alaska
    1. This park has one of the best back-country hiking with the chance to see moose, caribou, sheep, wolf, and Toklat grizzlies.
    2. Your chance of seeing these animals are very high because this park offers the best chance at seeing them through the 92-mile strip.
    3. It is possible to go white-water rafting and climbing icy slopes.
