Yosemite National Park - CA - USA - UNESCO #308
This beautiful vintage postcard came from Oregon in the United States and it shows a very beautiful view of one of the most famous sites in Yosemite Park, the Overhanging Rock. It's my second card from one of the american natural sites I most wish to visit - thank you very much Marianne for choosing a UNESCO card. This postcard took 18 days to arrive!
Yosemite National Park lies in the heart of California. With its 'hanging' valleys, many waterfalls, cirque lakes, polished domes, moraines and U-shaped valleys, it provides an excellent overview of all kinds of granite relief fashioned by glaciation. At 600–4,000 m, a great variety of flora and fauna can also be found here.
