Geography in West Coast USA

A school geography trip to the West Coast of the USA shows students impressive geographic sites in stark contrast of one another. Choose from the grand valleys and stunning waterfalls of Yosemite National Park, to the empty yet overwhelming Grand Canyon landscape.

Not only will your students see the effects of plate tectonics, faults and earthquakes, but have the opportunity to study and explore the breathtaking canyons, valleys and meandering rivers.
