Visiting ground zero is an emotional and required visit when coming to New York City. Both the interior and exterior provide dramatic, memorable, and sadly, chilling views.

One World Trade Center is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center.

Merced Morning – Yosemite


The Merced River, in the central part of California, is a 145-mile  tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada. It is most well known for its swift and steep course through the southern part of Yosemite National Park and the world-famous Yosemite Valley. The river’s character changes dramatically once it reaches the foothills and the lowlands, becoming a slow-moving waterway meandering through irrigated fields.
