Earth's Natural World Wonders

Natural Wonders of the World

 

Cascade Mts.-British Columbia , North America
Cascade Mts.-British Columbia

North America -North America is a continent of contrasts--from the lofty peaks of the Cascade Mountain range to the watery paradise of Florida's Everglades. Get up close and personal with giant glaciers, polar bears and wooly bison; hike through the wilds of Yellowstone Park; journey deep into caves rich with stalagmites and stalactites; and experience the beauty of sun-kissed deserts.



Iguaza Falls-Brazil , South America
Iguaza Falls-Brazil

South America -South America's natural forces can be witnessed in countless forms--you'll find them cascading over the Devil's Throat of the Iguazu Falls, flooding Llanos grasslands, pitting pirahanas in flooded forest treetops, ornamenting the snowy peaks of volanoes and freezing walls of ice in the deep Patagonian south.

Sognefjord-Norway , Europe
Sognefjord-Norway

Europe and the Middle East- From the birth of the mystical land of the midnight sun, to the everlasting healing waters of the Dead Sea, Europe and the Middle East span many countries and ages. The unique natural histories contained in their midst also charter the torturous and celebrated relationships that have marked Man's interactions with nature.


White Desert-Egypt

Africa-Viewed from above, Africa's reach is remarkable. The sands of the Sahara Desert blanket the north, interrupted only by the blue seam of the Nile. Rising in Africa's east, the Great Rift Valley scars the land. Western shores are frayed by the haunted shipwrecks of Skeleton Coast; and to the south, savannas host a safari of animals. Africa's central axis, the Congo Basin, is a network of swamps and emerald forests.


Yangtze Gorge-China, Asia
Yangtze Gorge-China

Asia- The dual power of nature is demonstrated through the elements at play in Asia. Fire-spewing volcanoes raise new lands from their summits.Ocean-worlds house water-kingdoms. Finally earth-bound and sky-stretching mountains--figures of inspiration, claimants of lives--rimind us of both the compatibility and fragility of the human condition against such potentially terrifying forces.

Carnarvon Nat. Park-Queensland , Australia
Carnarvon Nat. Park-Queensland

Australia- Australia is as plentiful and varied as the seas enclosing it--vibrant reef-worlds teeming with marine life, and scorched outbacks. The Great Barrier Reef stretches to Papua New Guinea, while New Zealand's Tongariro volcano towers above waves of rugged hills. Waters spread as far as Hawaii's Mount Waialeale, all the while weaving through Oceania's full school of islands.


Antarctic Penninsula , Polar Regions
Antarctic Penninsula

Polar Regions-An icy wilderness where the frozen fingertips of polar icecaps feel their way across stretches of land and water, the Arctic and Antarctic form the polar regions of our globe. Giant icebergs calved from the frosty cliffs of huge ice sheets turn the seas into icy soups; and polar bears negotiate the floating ice floes in search of food.
