The National Parks Exploration series presents a visual tour of 3 of the most visited parks in America: The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite.
The Grand Canyon: A Wonder of the Natural World
Enjoy breathtaking aerial views and amazing ground tours with the park rangers. The Colorado Plateau spans more than the states of New York, Illinois, Georgia and Virginia combined. Amidst all that landscape is one special gift for the human soul - of all its features none is more profound, more spectacular than the eighth wonder of the world: The Grand Canyon.
Yellowstone: The World's First National Park
On March 1, 1872 President Ulysses Grant signed into existence the world's first national park, Yellowstone National Park. The 2.2 million acres of wilderness is the only complete mid-latitude ecosystem left on the planet. It’s the only remaining temperate ecosystem large enough to contain the entire collection of large predators and large enough to contain their prey.
Yosemite: The High Sierras
The Sierra Nevada's mountain range contains some of the most amazing wonders found on the planet. Filled with such notable geographic features including Lake Tahoe, three National Parks, two National Monuments and seemingly endless wilderness areas, the Sierras are truly spectacular in ever-sense of the word. This is Yosemite country.
