Moro Rock, Sequoia National Park, California
California
Moro Rock is a prominent glaciated granite dome in the Sequoia National Park. It is famous because of its accessibility. In the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps built a concrete trail to the top of the rock so that the average hiker could make it to the top. The west face of Moro Rock is over a thousand vertical feet. These domes are caused by the erosional process of exfoliation, the spalling off of rock layers. As the overburden of the rock is removed, the granite expands from the relief of the pressure. Moro Rock is located in Sequoia National Park, in the central Sierra of California. Sequoia is famous for its giant trees including the largest tree in the world by volume, the General Sherman tree.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
