Happy Earth Day! In honor of Earth Day this year, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of some of the most beautiful places in the US that you can visit while on a travel nursing placement. Get your pen and paper out, you’re going to want to add these to your bucket list.
Havasupai Falls, Arizona
You know those places you see photos of and they just don’t even seem real? Havasupai Falls is one of them. The falls are located in the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Due to the high volume of people that want to visit the falls, you must buy a pass to hike there in advance for select dates. So if you’re looking to see the falls, make sure you’re planning it out, but trust us it’s well worth it! Planning your adventure to Havasupai Falls? Try a placement in Northern Arizona.
Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, California
The Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park is home to the world’s largest tree – the giant sequoia. Wandering through the park reminds you of how small we really are in the grand scheme of things. The best part? There are campgrounds so you can camp or stay in a cabin amongst the glorious sequoia trees. If you’re looking to spend your days amongst the trees, try a placement in Fresno.
Death Valley National Park, California
If the name doesn’t say enough, Death Vallery National Park is the hottest, driest, and lowest National Park in the country. The park lies on the border of California and Nevada, making Scaling Zabriskie Point will leave you with unmatched views like you’ve never seen before. Try a placement in Las Vegas for some extra fun and easy access to the park.
Glacier National Park, Montana
One of the biggest draws to the park is the going-to-the-sun road. It spans 50 miles and goes through the mountains and over the Continental Divide. One at the top of the road, you’ll have your pick of hiking trails that all lead to their own hidden gems like Avalance Lake. Ready to see what other hidden gems are waiting to be discovered in Glacier National park, try a placement in Montana.
The Palouse, Washington, Idaho, and Oregon
The Palouse is a lush sprawling rolling green hills located in Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. According to The Seven Wonders of Washington State website, “The hills were formed over tens of thousands of years from windblown dust and silt, called ‘loess.'” The hills are mostly an agricultural area of wheat and legumes, but it makes for a stunning view. Check out any PNW placement if you’re looking for views of the Palouse.
