United States Six National Parks
By, Julissa Marta-R. & Kayla McNew The six National Parks are:
The Grand Canyon
Crater Lake
Lake Clark
Appalachian Mountains The Grand Canyon
Location: In northern ARIZONA Crater Lake
Location: southern oregon The Everglades was created by a 11,000 miles of a sheet of water from the Kissimme river, Lake Okeechobee and southward over low-lying lands to the estuaries of Biscayne Bay. Especially the Ten Thousand Islands, including the Florida Bay. These bodies of water were once all united and filled up the low-lying land for almost covering 11,000 squared miles of land. It took thousands of years for these created mosaic of ponds, sloughs, saw grass marshes, hard wood hammocks, and the forested uplands to become a balanced ecosystem. Which became a home for many exotic plants and animals. The Everglades
Location: South of Florida Citations galleryofpix.com
Description of the Grand Canyon:
The Grand Canyon is a beautiful natural feature that has once been created by wind, and water erosion.Especially the continental drift that took place in the Grand Canyon transformation. But most importantly, water erosion. About 1.7 billion years ago the Grand Canyon used to be just mountains. As the years passed by the continental drift began to change the Grand Canyon's physical features while the Earth's rotation changed climate on the Earth's seasons. This made a huge change to the mountains. The changes in the seasons caused the Pacific ocean to extend to the Grand Canyon. Which the Canyon was then flooded with ocean water. The erosion of the water caused a change in the mountains by making it flat. The ocean will sometimes dissipate into mist throughout for many years, but would then come back to cover and over flood the Grand Canyon. Which is why the Grand Canyon has different layers of rock. As the years passed by being in the ocean. Lime stones or dead parts of sea animals would be compressed into rock. In which it occurred frequently throughout the Grand Canyon's life on Earth. Still today the Grand will be changing in features by the Colorado River that surpasses it causing water erosion. But either way nature is nature, but is a wonderful work of art. Description of Badlands National Park:
Badlands in South Dakota are considered to be called the wall. It is an enormous natural barrier that has been created by water erosion. These cliffs are sculptured into the shape of pinacles, since the past half million years, water has been carving the pinnacles creating its shape. The Badlands receieve atleast one inch of erosion per year. This natural physical features is an amazing and intimadating featured that will never be tiring to see. Bad Lands National Park
Location: South Dakota Description of Crater Lake:
Crater lake in the beginning was once a volcano that was called Mount Mazama. It is stated that 7,700 years ago the volcano errupted. The eruption was said to be 42 times powerful than the erruption that occuered in 1980, from Mount St. Helens. During the erruption the volcanoe collapsed creating a basin. Lava flows beneath the lake, but it is sealed. Which it would take a long time for an erruption to occur. The Lake was created by water and melted snow, which created one of the most beautiful veiws in the world, the Crater Lake. Description of the appalachian Mountains:
Many years ago the Appalachain Mountains began to form in the era Paleozic and Maleozic (480 million years ago). When all the continents were still together as one. They were created by the impacts from tectinic plates, some series of seperation and collision between the plates. As the years past. The Appalachain Mountains continue to be influenced by these impacts.It is especially influenced by water and air erosion. Which also tooked place into changing the Appalachians Mountains physical features. It is a complex of folded mountains, uplifted platues, parralel ridges and valleys, volcanic rock layers, and metamorphosed sedament rocks.which were the effects of the impacts. The Appalachian Mountains
Location: stretches Western to the canadian province Newfoundland and south towards Central alabama Lake Clark
location: Alaska Description of Lake Clark:
Lake Clark is considered to be a young landscape that has been created a long while ago, but not that long as 300 million years ago. This work of art has been impacted throughout many years. Lake Clark stands above a fault line called the Clark Fault. This fault is part of the Ring of Fire.The young landscape has been shaped by volcanism, earthquakes, intrusion, and uplift from the collisions from the fault.This young beauty has not been only created by these causes, but also because of its cold climate and glaciers.
