  1. The Haleakala Crater on the Hawaiian island of Maui ranks number one for me. The sands’ varied colors — gray, red, tan, brown, and orange — are quite simply remarkable. Mix that with the more sturdy black and gray rocks and green vegetation — it just feels otherworldly.

  2. I loved seeing active Kilauea volcano from a helicopter. Truly awesome.

    But on a more prosaic level, I find the action of waves in the ocean/on the beach to be just as amazing and I could watch them for hours!

    Also, fire.

  3. I’ve been fortunate enough to see a lot of remarkable natural wonders. Perhaps not the most impressive, but one of the most under-appreciated, I experienced just a few years ago during my cross country bicycle trip.

    It’s called the Picture Gorge, located in Central Oregon and part of the John Day Fossil Beds. While not nearly as long or as deep as the Grand Canyon, there is a stretch of road right next to the John Day River, which cut through the rock to expose various eras of history.

    I didn’t get any pictures of this remarkable sight myself, and I can’t find many good pictures of it online, either. But someone did take some grainy, shaky video footage of a car ride passing through.


  4. A coral reef with all the unbelievable colors and intricate shapes of the fish and other creatures. I saw them in an aquarium at Sea World in Orlando. Although the setting was man-made, the natural beings were the most amazing.
