Winter wonderlands! Stunning shots of America’s national parks as winter freeze takes grip
These stunning snaps capture true winter WONDER lands – as Mother Nature’s icy grip takes hold of America’s National Parks.
From snow-capped mountains in Yosemite to an icy still Glacier Bay, the incredible images show their beauty is year round.
In other breath-taking shots crisp frost lines the paths through Great Smokey Mountains and Crater Lake has had more than a dusting of snow.
Each stunning shot was collated by the U.S. Department of the Interior – the agency which protects US land, water and wildlife.
Tim Fullerton, Director of Digital Strategy, said: “America’s public lands are just as beautiful this time of year as they are in the warmer months.
“Snow and ice turns national parks, wildlife refuges and other public lands into a winter wonderland, enhancing the beauty of nature in America’s great outdoors.”
