Photographer's Note

Maybe it is not seen in my gallery but I am the great nature lover. And what are the best places to see the most beautiful unspoiled nature? These are National Parks. And as a crazy traveller I want to see as much parks and gardens as possible. I have even (in my mind) the ranking of the most interesting National Parks that I visited. I have no doubt what is Number One in this list: it is Yellowstone NP. The United States established the first "public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people", Yellowstone National Park, in 1872. Although Yellowstone was not officially termed a "national park" in its establishing law, it was always termed such in practice and is widely held to be the first and oldest national park in the world.
And why it is the best IMHO? It is the most diverse. It has all - mountains, lakes, forests, prerias, rivers, waterfalls, geysers, travertine terraces, wild animals. It is big, even two days are not enough to see the most interesting places.
Some candidates for the next places on the list are: Arches in USA, Iguazu and Torres del Paine in Soth America, Etosha in Africa, Jiuzhaigou in China, Uluru in Australia. I do not have my favorite in Europe.

I would love to show some of these marvels but I have an impression that nature is not specially appreciated on TE. But I will try:

The Yellowstone River is a tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 692 miles (1,114 km) long, in the western United States. Considered the principal tributary of the upper Missouri, the river and its tributaries drain a wide area stretching from the Rocky Mountains in the vicinity of the Yellowstone National Park across the mountains and high plains of southern Montana and northern Wyoming.The Yellowstone is the last free flowing river in the lower 48 states. The Yellowstone River flows as it has for centuries, in its natural state, undammed and untamed. Clear, cool swift and challenging.
