These Photos From the US Wilderness Are Simply Stunning

A new photo exhibit by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History has recently been published, named "Wilderness forever: 50 Years of Protecting America's Wild Places." This exhibit contains images that were hand-picked to capture the uncomparable beauty of America's wilderness. 

This exhibit celebrates the success of the Wilderness Act that was adopted in 1964 and, to this date, has defended 109 million acres of American wilderness. Over 5,000 submissions were made, and only a few selected, bringing to life the majesty of US mountains, tundra, forests and wildlife from all states.

You can find out more about this exhibit at the Smithsonian web site.
