[10-1-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: Bridalveil Fall is just one of more than a thousand waterfalls at which California national park?
The given options are:
Correct Answer: Yosemite
Info: Yosemite National Park is an American national park in California covering an area of 759,620 acres. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, lakes, mountains, meadows, glaciers, and biological diversity. The word Yosemite historically referred to the name that the Miwok gave to the Ahwahneechee People, an Indigenous tribe driven out of Yosemite Valley by the Mariposa Battalion. Not to be confused with Utah’s confusingly similar Bridal Veil Falls, Bridalveil Fall is often the first waterfall visitors see on a trip to Yosemite National Park. If you want to avoid confusion, call it by its original Ahwahneechee name, Pohono, or ‘Spirit of the Puffing Wind.’ In 2016, more than five million visitors visited this park for the first time in its history.
