Postcards tagged: Nature in All Its Glory
BHUTAN – It's one of the last, lost paradises on earth. I knew it would be overwhelming. I can't stop thinking about the beauty of the country and the kindness of the people.
96 and looking good! Here's to the lovely people in charge of 84 million acres of beloved American landscapes. Where would US parks be without you guys?
HOWES CAVE, New York – The place is amazing, 156 feet below the surface of the earth with stalagmites, stalactites, and an infinity of other crazy formations.
CAPE OTWAY, Australia – Once the sun goes down the kookaburra starts to sound like The Joker in his pivotal moment of revenge.
RUB' AL KHALI, United Arab Emirates – Before long, I was restless to start the journey up the dune, which sat quietly taunting me. A reader story.
BERMUDA – The island is covered in tropical plants and brightly painted cottages with white roofs. Lemon yellow, peach, salmon pink — even the churches come in sea-foam green and turquoise.
YOSEMITE, California – I found an abandoned cabin with chairs on the patio in the middle of the countryside with no trail leading to it. It looked like something left over from a movie set.
SYDNEY – Although harmless, the garden's resident fruit bats made their presence known throughout the movie by occasionally flying in front of the screen or letting out a shrill squeal.
SOUTH GEORGIA, Antarctica – Penguins! Thousands of them! Everybody loves penguins.
TULUM, Mexico – After a bumpy drive down a dirt road, a motorboat took us through nine different ecosystems. (Amazing!) Pristine, untouched, and beautiful nature at its best.
