Moving from the UK to America

Moving From the UK to America?

America is one of those extraordinary places that is pretty much impossible to encapsulate in a few words or images. Every one of its 50 states is unique in numerous ways, from the regional accent, to the landscape, even down to the weather system! We thought we’d celebrate the amazing diversity of the US, by featuring 5 of the lesser known wonders that you’ll definitely want to visit once you’re settled.

Grand Prismatic Spring – Yellowstone

Most visitors to Yellowstone make for ‘Old Faithful’, but far fewer find their way to this rainbow coloured thermal spring.  The hot water forces its way up to the surface through a 121 foot crack in the earth’s surface. At its centre the water is deep Mediterranean blue. It’s ringed by layers of bright orange, yellow and green made up of bacteria responding to the cooling water.

Elephant Rocks State Park – Missouri

Huge, pink hued pieces of granite in the St Francois Mountains, southern Missouri, bear an uncanny resemblance to a line of circus elephants. They’re millions of years old, the result of huge volcanic eruptions. Over the centuries they’ve weathered, and become perfectly smooth. Threading through the ‘Devil’s Kitchen’, you sense the brutal power of America’s beginnings.

Hawaii Volcanos National Park – Hawaii

Hawaii grew out of the ocean thanks to mammoth volcanic activity. The Volcanic National Park allows you to witness the ongoing shape shifting. Kilauea and Mauna Loa are two of the world’s most active volcanos, and guided expeditions allow you to see them in action. A sight not to miss is molten lava pouring into the Pacific Ocean at night, creating clouds of steam on contact.

Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park – Nebraska

12 million years ago, the Idaho volcano erupted causing an extinction event in the immediate environment. Animals inhaled the ash and were finally covered. The conditions preserved them in the moment of their death and now they can be seen exactly as they died. This is a rare opportunity to see a sabre toothed deer, perfectly preserved.

Crater Lake – Oregon

Formed by a volcano nearly 8,000 years ago, this is America’s deepest lake. Ringed by mountain peaks and eerily still, the lake is an extraordinarily tranquil spot. What makes it even more special is the fact that it can only be reached by foot. The Cleetwood Cove Trail is only open in the summer months and is quite a strenuous hike. It’s worth it though, to swim in a lake that bottoms out at 2,000 feet.
