North America has a vast array of natural wonders from breath-taking mountain ranges, to lakes, deserts, canyons and beautiful beaches.
With much deliberation here is my top 10 natural wonders of America!
10 - Yellowstone National Park – for its preservation of Old Faithful and the world’s largest collection of geysers
9 - Grand Canyon – for the stunning views from the south rim and the option to soar above in a helicopter
8 - Yosemite National Park – for its deep valleys and Giant Sequoias
7 - Rocky Mountains – for its emerald-coloured Moraine Lake, which is beautiful from any angle
6 - Niagara Falls – for the moment you get up-close and feel the spray
5 - Mississippi River – for its diverse culture that meanders through the heart of the South
4 - Death Valley – for its Badwater Basin, which covers over 200 square miles and is so flat and sparse that it alters your sense of perspective
3 - Appalachian Mountains – for the endless hiking opportunities and lush green scenery
2 - Mount St Helens – for its ability to regenerate following its destruction from the massive volcano eruption in 1980
1 - Bryce Canyon – for its out-of-this-world ‘hoodoo’ landscape and amazing rock formations
If any of these have whet your appetite then why not take a look at the selection of tours that Grand American Adventures offer and go and see these natural wonders for yourself.
