Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is best known for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves and biological diversity. Almost 95 percent of the park is designated wilderness, which is defined by the Wilderness Act of 1964 as, “an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.”

First protected in 1864, Yosemite was central to the development of the National Parks system.

During a quick springtime stop in the Yosemite Valley, Yahoo News photographer Gordon Donovan grabbed a few photos and discovered a place that requires several days to capture all of the park’s beauty. (Yahoo News)

In Nepal, mountaineers usually begin their Mount Everest climb after arriving at the Lukla Airport, where the airstrip is located precariously on the side of a mountain.

At Saint Martin, an island in the northeast Caribbean, the Princess Juliana International Airport is located right next to the beach. Planes flying towards the airstrip will have to hover over beach hunks and bikini-clad babes before landing. Some of those suntanning find a thrill in seeing planes flying low above them.

At the Gibraltar airport, there is not much space for the airstrip — so planes have to fly pass everyday vehicles on the roads as well as pedestrians. Beep beep.
