What features of our Earth amaze you the most? They can be natural wonders, science phenomenons, landforms, etc. Share anything that you think captures the essence of Earth's beauty. Hopefully I can learn some things that I did not know before.

These are my favorite natural wonders:

Half dome is pretty cool.



When I was a kid, we vacationed in Yosemite virtually every summer. My dad was hippie outdoorsey kind of guy. They have some wonderful waterfalls in Yosemite to, like Bridalveil and many others

I really love this place even though i havent been to it. Its a incredibly dangerous but awesome area.
Its called the Tsingy stone Forest, in Madagascar. Whenever a research team goes here they usually all ways discover atleast 5 new species!



Ball lightning is one of my favorite unexplained atmospheric phenomena.

cool

hadn't heard of that one ....
from wiki ....
Blue Fire Crater[edit]

Since National Geographic mentioned the electric-blue flame of Ijen, more tourists have come to see it. The phenomenon has occurred for a long time, but beforehand there was no midnight hiking. A two-hour hike is required to reach rim of the crater, thence 45 minutes to hike down to the bank of the crater, a guide necessary. The blue fire is not lava, but the ignited sulphuric gas, which emerged from cracks, with temperatures up to 600 degrees Celsius (1,112 degrees Fahrenheit) and up to 5 meters (16 feet) high; some of the gas condenses to liquid with the low alpine temperature and is still ignited, leading to the common assumption that it is lava.[6][7] It is the largest blue flame area in the world and local people refer to it as 'Blue Fire', because it easier and more understandable to say 'fire' than 'flame'.

I see some of that view everyday as my house is at the Portland side mouth of the river gorge. Amtrak has a service from Portland to eastern Washington that follows the river on that side that is amazing for its views.
