USA - Yosemite National Park

"Yosemite National Park lies in the heart of California. With its 'hanging' valleys, many waterfalls, cirque lakes, polished domes, moraines and U-shaped valleys, it provides an excellent overview of all kinds of granite relief fashioned by glaciation. At 600–4,000 m, a great variety of flora and fauna can also be found here." -http://whc.unesco.org

Postcard 1: The Grizzly Giant, Sequoia Tree



"The card shows the most famous tree in Yosemite... 
Words cannot describe how massive and amazing it is when you see it.
It and the other trees in the grove are true miracles of nature.
They resist fire and disease, and they only seem to die from Old Age when they fall over",
shares Sergio... Thanks much Sergio!


Postcard 2: Yosemite Valley

 


"John Muir, a famous American naturalist and often called
the Father of America's National Parks, said 
'No temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite'.
It's a real treasure", shares Katie.
Thank you so much Katie for sending me a UNESCO card for the Slavic RR! 
I super like the Simpson stamp!


Postcard 3: Bridalveil Falls, Cathedral Rocks, El Capitan and Half Dome
