Glacier and Yellowstone: Beautiful in Different Ways

Posted by  Luke Tower on Saturday, September 13, 2014

Glacier and Yellowstone are both very beautiful but in very different ways. Glacier contains rich colors like the evergreen forest's rich greens and bright flowers and the crystal clear water that looks as if it were glass. The mountains are so amazing and home to the park's namesake glaciers. The many stunning waterfalls are mainly generated by melting glaciers and are all freezing cold.

Yellowstone's beauty is thanks to the wide variety of geologic activities and formations like geysers, hot springs, mud pots and colorful mineral lakes. Yellowstone's beauty is just as dangerous as it is striking. At least one person has died at each major geyser or hot spring.

Both parks are so beautiful in different ways, it would be difficult to choose between them if I could only have visited one. I am glad that I have visited both.

    hello, you should make sure you stop in Sedona Az, just 10 miles south of Flagstaff Az, take a pink jeep tour, or one of the many hikes. Google Sedona AZ and you will see why. also I am working on a open source project 'rule the world (with Kinect)' interactive mapping project using google earth, Kinect SDK and signalR it might be fun to trick you trip there.
