A to Z Blogfest Around the World in 30 Days - Yosemite or Yellowstone

"Yellowstone Falls" MMSikes
What should "Y" stand for in the A to Z Blogfest Around the World in 30 Days? The Passenger to Paradise couldn't decide between Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National Park, so she selected them both.

In mid-June last year the Passenger traveled to Lake Tahoe and along the way had planned to take a sidetrip tp Yosemite. After all, she had long admired the photographs of Ansel Adams, many of which were taken in Yosemite. However, she learned after arriving in California that heavy snows still closed the road she needed to use for travel through the park. She was very disappointed.

In 2006, the Passenger spent two weeks touring Yellowstone National Park where she was thrilled to see the wild life, the geysers, the mudpots, and so much more. She wondered if the waterfalls pictured on the left might be similar to some of the scenery found in Yosemite.

Perhaps, another time she'll go to Yosemite. Have you visited either or both of these national treasures?

I've been to both parks but that was a long time ago.

I'm so happy the government set aside these areas for the public. How sad it would be to have housing developments and businesses throughout the areas. I think buildings are too close to the iconic Red Rocks in Sedona AZ.

Thanks for commenting, Alex!

Hi, I'm a new follower from the A to Z Challenge. I'm sorry I discovered your blog so late, I like the way you structured the challenge and would have liked to read more. I did Sweden, my native country and that was challenge enough for me. I have been to Yellow Stone many times as I spent a winter in Jackson Hole once.

Monti said...

Thanks, Inger. I'm delighted to have you as a follower. Sweden intrigues me, but I've never been there and would like to go.

I have never been to either and would love to go to both. Great choices for Y.

Thanks, Chuck, for your visit. I loved Yellowstone!
