There are hundreds of beautiful, naturally created sites around the globe. If you’re a United States citizen you should definitely consider checking out some of America’s most incredible natural wonders.
Here I have compiled some of the most beautiful natural wonders in North America. I hope you will like it. I may have missed out some so please feel free to comment
City of Rocks
Located in Idaho, the City of Rocks is probably the only “city” in existence without any living inhabitants. It is believed to be over 2.5 billion years old. Now it’s the ultimate destination for rock climbers.
Scientists believe that this 4,000 foot wide, 600 foot deep crater may have been created by the impact of a meteor striking the earth more than 50,000 years ago. Barringer, for whom the crater is currently named, was the first person to suggest that the crater may have been caused by a meteorite.
The beautifully sculpted Fisher Towers in Utah are the result of many years of rain and wind. Today, standing proudly along the horizon, the towers are a favorite destination for climbers.
The Lost Sea
The Lost Sea is considered part of the Craighead Cavern system which is actually underground. The Lost Sea is the second largest underground lake in the entire world.
Massive and expansive, the Grand Canyon is the byproduct of millions of years of evolution. The canyon is more than 300 miles long and can, in places, plunge as far as 1 mile deep.
The falls make the perfect backdrop for a romantic wedding, generate tons of hydroelectric power, and apparently draw dozens of daredevils for jumps each year.
Great Salt Lake
The Great Salt Lake, located in Utah, spans over more than 2,500 square miles. Once incorrectly believed to be an extension of the Pacific Ocean, the Great Salt Lake is the largest saltwater body of water in the Western Hemisphere.
Mammoth Cave National Park, located in central Kentucky, spans across more than 50,000 acres – underground, that is. Its 365 miles of passageways make it the longest cave system in the world.
Despite its chilling name, Death Valley National Park in California and Nevada attracts thousands of curious visitors each year. During the summer months the temperatures here can skyrocket to well over 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
