Located in the Virunga Mountains, and established to protect the beautiful mountain gorillas, Volcanes National Park was the first national park created in Africa.

It is a huge park and its vegetation varies considerably due to the large altitudinal range within the park. From 8,000  ft. to over 10,000 ft., is this amazing bamboo forest, which covers about 30% of the park.

As if the Chile’s Atacama Desert ins’t magnificent enough on its own, there are also these unbelievable “statues” adding to the scenery. They are huge vertical rocks formations that have been shaped by wind erosion over millions of years, mimicking the silhouette of monks. they are remains of large volcanic eruptions which once flowed in the area.  The gignormous rock formations rise toward the sky enhancing this beautiful area.

How large is this one? Do you see Bill standing in the foreground? He’s nearly 6′ and barely visible!

Northern Lights, Hudson Bay , Canada

Northern Lights
Photographed in Canada

Northern lights—aurora borealis—are caused by the interaction of charged particles from the sun with atoms in the upper atmosphere. These dancing lights are strongest in the winter months and are a joy to see. The downside? Yes! It was very cold, but worth being out on Hudson Bay’s tundra to watch this natural phenomenon.

Tamezret
Photographed in Tunisia

Tamezret is a  Berber village located southeast of the country, about 25 miles southwest of the Gabes—the capital city on which it depends. It is one of the first villages to deviate from the troglodyte dwellings in the region. Many residents here have resisted linguistic assimilation and still speak Berber within their families.

This is a fascinating place to see the past alive!
