Golden Bridge, San Francisco
Lassen Volcanic National Park
The dry, smoldering, treeless terrain within this 106, 000-acre national park stands in stunning contrast to the cool, green conifer forest that surrounds it. Entering the park (especially from the southern entrance), is to suddenly step into another world - onto another planet. The Venusian scape here offers a fascinating glimpse into the earth’s fiery core. In a fuming display, the terrain is marked by roiling hot springs, steamy mud pots, noxious sulfur vents, fumaroles, lava flows, cinder cones, craters and crater lakes.
Death Valley National Park
Death Valley National Park, the largest national park in the continental USA, covers an enormous area - more than 5000 sq miles - that includes other valleys and mountain ranges to the north. Created as part of the 1994 California Desert Protection Act, its primary reason for being is conservation, not tourism. Inside this amazing natural playground, you’ll find musical sand dunes, mosaic marbled canyons, boulders that appear to race across the sunbaked desert floor, extinct volcanic craters, palm-shaded oases and dozens of rare wildlife species that exist nowhere else in the world.
When Walt Disney trotted out his famous mouse in 1928, he won the hearts and minds of America’s children - and founded an empire that, with its conjured innocence and relentless focus on the bottom line, has become synonymous with America itself. After conquering publishing, film and TV, Disney decided to give physical form to his imaginary world. He opened Disneyland in 1955 and, a half-century later, the crowds - and profits - are bigger than ever.
