How to Access the Hidden Wallpapers in Mac OS X Mavericks

The recently released Mac OS X Mavericks comes with many fantastic looking wallpapers that are built-in to the system. But, there are also some hidden high-res wallpapers that were previously introduced in Mac OS X Mountain Lion that are still available in Mac OS X Mavericks. These 43 high-res wallpapers (each with a whopping 3200 × 2000 resolution) include stunning shots from National Geographic.

Locating these wallpapers is fairly simple as long as you know where to look. Just follow the simple instructions below to uncover these stunning wallpapers.
