Greatest Natural Wonders of The Earth

  1. Jul 21, 2014 #1
    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:

    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!

    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.
