I will go to Yosemite with my family this summer. We'll take my uncle and aunt from Vietnam on a camping trip to this place. We might go to Kings Canyon Sequoia also. I like the parks from the Pacific side better since they're not too desert-like or mountainous.

Hello Lennye :)

Hmmmmmmm.... California coasts, nature and weather are beutiful no doubt. But other states are also worthy visiting (my opinion). As deals US coast Florida isn't the worst too. National Parks there also are beautiful.
Soon I will tell you here about one of them.

Hahaha ... but Utah is the best. No doubt. In Grand Canyon rocks are very big and "crowded". In Utah you have more place for biking etc. You can also drive around hahaha :). Probably not so many people there after all.

"Thelma and Luise" (famous movie from 1991) was shot there instead of Grand Canyon. Cheaper?

Well... but truly speaking the most world famous and prestigeous US National Park is Yellowstone of course. It is also the oldest National Park in the world.

But you know - I am from Europe. Truly speaking it is probably cheaper to go into Island to admire geysers.

Besides I think you don't have in US many things that are in US. I am sure of it :)

For example you don't have France, Greece, Croatia...

Well... you also don't have any Rome and Italy in US, you don't have Switzerland, Austria, Begium...
I think people in US mostly don't understand crowded, multinational Europe at all.

In Poland (more or less the same size as Utah) live 40 million people and in Utah 2,2 million so choose where would you like to live and where people feel better and more free? Of course still any word about other things cause apart from the size of the whole area ... nothing else to compare (my opinion).:(

What is probably specially funny to me is the fact that Winter Olympic Games took place in Utah in 2002 and in Poland in Tatra region people have been fighting and fighting for organising Winter Olympic Games FOR YEARS and probably they will never be given any chance to host them. Moreover observing whole everyday Polish reality I am sure rather Arizona, US will get that chance sooner... :(

All in all welcome to Romeeeeeeeeeeee! today :)

travelling Rome

LM.

PS. You have these all the biggest trees in California only because ice-age didn't get them! Then climate in Europe became much colder and many trees weren't able to grow here any longer.
Besides some trees in Australia aren't less taller at all!!!
And that's all unless there aren't any nasty insects comming everywhere and buzzing awkwardly in the air irritating all true admirers of sequojas beauty...

Never thought of Florida. I detest its weather.
