Unesco. The United States of America in World Heritage List… There are 22 places in The United States of America in the World Heritage List of Unesco. What is your favorite? Tell us your opinion.
I have a special feeling for these three:
Yellowstone National Park. It covers nearly 9,000 km2 in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Yellowstone contains half of the world known geothermal features as well as the world largest concentration of geysers (more than 300 geysers). This wonderful park is also known for its wildlife: grizzly bears, wolves, bison and wapitis.
Grand Canyon National Park. Carved out by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is the most remarkable gorge in the world. It’s located in the state of Arizona, and there are prehistoric traces of human adaptation to a particularly harsh environment. Marvellous and interesting!
La Fortaleza and San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico. Between the 15th and 19th centuries, a huge series of defensive structures was built to protect the city and the Bay of San Juan. A fine display of Spanish architecture adapted to harbour sites on the American continent.
Other places in the World Heritage list of Unesco: Mesa Verde National Park; Everglades National Park; Independence Hall; Kluane / Wrangell-St. Elias / Glacier Bay / Tatshenshini-Alsek; Redwood National and State Parks; Mammoth Cave National Park; Olympic National Park; Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site; Great Smoky Mountains National Park; Statue of Liberty; Yosemite National Park; Chaco Culture; Hawaii Volcanoes National Park; Monticello and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville; Taos Pueblo; Carlsbad Caverns National Park; Waterton Glacier International Peace Park; Papahānaumokuākea; and onumental Earthworks of Poverty Point.
Have you visited all of them? Pick one and visit it this summer. All are wonderful!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
