①Yellowstone

One of the most famous and oldest National Parks in the United States is Yellowstone National Park.  The park comprises 3,472 square miles, making it larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.  The park is very famous for its hot springs and geysers, the most famous being Old Faithful Geyser. Eruptions can shoot 14,000 to 32,000 liters of boiling water to a height of 32 to 56 meters lasting from  1.5 to 5 minutes. The average height of an eruption is 44 meters.  The eruptions occur on average every 90 minutes. The park also contains beautiful forests, canyons, waterfalls, and scenic views.  Tourists can also see a variety of wild animals including bison, black bear, grizzly bear, deer, elk, wolves, and mountain goats.  It is a wonderful place to visit.

②My Daughter

I have a wonderful daughter whose name is Amanda.  She is very pretty and has beautiful blonde hair.  When she was young she did some modeling and acting.  She did a variety of jobs, including being in a country music video, having her picture used on a Barbie toy box and modeling for Disney clothing catalogs.  In fact, she was dressed as the Peter Pan movie character, Tinkerbell, in the Disney catalog.  I think it was this experience that made her become the ultimate Disney fan.  She loves everything Disney and loves to visit Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida.  She is now 27 years old, married and a kindergarten teacher, but she is still like a little girl when it comes to loving Disney.

➂Frankenmuth

Frankenmuth is a very popular city and tourist attraction in the state of Michigan.  The town is like a small Bavarian village, complete with a large Bavarian Inn downtown and a variety of Bavarian themed shops.  In fact, the nickname for the city is “Little Bavaria.”  It is also home to Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, which is the world’s largest Christmas store covering nearly 7.5 acres.  The store sells Christmas decorations from all over the world.  Also, downtown, there is an amazing and large wooden coverage bridge that is built in the style of the Black Forest river valley in Switzerland.  The city hosts a large Bavarian festival in the summer and a snow festival in the winter that includes the United States Collegiate National Ice Carving Championships.
