This post comes courtesy of Gemma Thompson who provided me with these spectacular photos taken on a recent trip to America, when she was overwhelmed by a visit to the beautiful Yosemite National Park.
As you may already be aware, Yosemite is best known for its waterfalls and Gemma captured these brilliantly. It's not all about the waterfalls though - as the park covers almost one thousand two hundred square miles; there are also deep valleys, and huge meadows.
Gemma said she believes the park should go down as one of the wonders of the world, and I agree! The photo below reminds me of a scene out of Jurassic Park with that huge waterfall - it's absolutely stunning.
Before Gemma kindly donated her photographs, I recently wrote a post on America's parks - if you want to read more, click here.
