Yosemite National Park

 Yosemite National Park receives 3 million visitors a year, most arriving by car in similar areas. Building roads and car parks disturbs wildlife as there is less space for them to live in, and also the noise can cause them to move away, and in some circumstances, very sensitive species can stop breeding altogether due to the presence of a large road nearby, or be scared out of the area.

Air pollutants in car exhausts are also an issue; sometimes the smog in the valley gets thick enough due to a temperature inversion in the dramatic (and frankly beautiful) valley areas that the features cannot actually be seen.
