The West

So in the West I visited Yellowstone Park, Los Angels, Hoover Dam, Pacific Ocean, and the Golden Gate Bridge. In Yellowstone Park there is a large variety of grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. There is over 300 geysers! It is one of the hot spots in the world! Also Yellowstone has 18 species of fish, 6 reptiles, 4 amphibians, and 311 birds. A lot of animal right?

In Los Angles is the most populaur city in California. By 1990, the population grew to more than 102,000! The Northridge earthquake shook Los Angles and had caused $21.5 billion in damage. It also caused 72 deaths. Now, a lot of people still visit Los Angles.

Hoover Dam was once known as Boulder Dam. It was constructed between 1931-1936 so it was about 5 years. It is located near Boulder City, Nevada. Nearly a million people visit the dam each year. The bridge for the dam came to mind in the 1960s.

The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean of all Earth. It also has the deepest average depth. Also it is dotted with small volcanic islands.For an example: Hawaii. The Pacific Ocean is so big it takes 12 hours to fly over it. That is about 2 school days! It is also 10,000 meters deep.

Finally the Golden Gate Bridge. It is also located in California. It is 746 feet above the water. The fame has to do something with its beautiful setting. The construction began on January 5, 1933. The color of the bridge is international orange.
