As epitomized in the vibrant cities from New York to Las Vegas, life in North America appears larger than life, and nature it appears is competing. Yellow Stone National Park, home to grizzlies, wolves, bison and elk has more geysers than any other place on earth.

The Grand Canyon, boasting natural arches carved from the surrounding red stone, is 1.8 kilometres deep, exposing two billion years of the earth’s geographic history.

The Everglades is a massive 1.5 million acres, and provides a home for many rare and endangered species. North America is also home the world’s longest known cave system and the tallest trees on earth.
