Nevada National Parks
Great Basin National Park
Great Basin National Park is one of the most
recent national parks. It was founded in 1986 by the president
Ronald Reagan. The name of the park comes from the distinctive
feature of the water flow system; in the major part of the region,
streams and rivers do not have an opening that leads to the sea
and so flow into shallow lakes of salt, marshes and puddles of mud
where the water evaporates into the desert air.
Death Valley National Park (California)
You will find snowy peaks, magnificent sand dunes and
abandoned mines. Over 900 species of plants grow in the hottest
national park of the United States.
