"The President" a 3200 Year Old Tree in Sequoia National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada's of California ~ The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall, measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume, ~ The trunk is 27 feet wide and its branches hold 2 billion needles, the most of any tree on the planet. ~ "The President" is still adding one cubic meter of wood per year - making it one of the fastest growing trees in the world.
Sequoia National Park is a national park in the southern Sierra Nevada east of Visalia, California, in the United States. It was established on September 25, 1890. The park spans 404,063 acres (631.35 sq mi; 1,635.18 km2). Encompassing a vertical relief of nearly 13,000 feet (4,000 m), the park contains among its natural resources the highest point in the contiguous 48 United States, Mount Whitney, at 14,505 feet (4,421 m) above sea level. The park is south of and contiguous with Kings Canyon National Park; the two are administered by the National Park Service together as the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The park is famous for its giant sequoia trees, including the General Sherman tree, one of the largest trees on Earth. The General Sherman tree grows in the Giant Forest, which contains five out of the ten largest trees in the world. The Giant Forest is connected by the Generals Highway to Kings Canyon National Park's General Grant Grove, home to the General Grant tree among other giant sequoias. The park's giant sequoia forests are part of 202,430 acres (81,921 ha) of old-growth forests shared by Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Indeed, the parks preserve a landscape that still resembles the southern Sierra Nevada before Euro-American settlement.
odditiesoflife: This 3200 Year Old Tree is So Massive, It’s Never Been Captured in a Single Image…Until Now It takes a special kind of tree to have a nickname like “The President”. The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and is an estimated 3,200 years old. The trunk measures 27 feet across and, between the base and the highest peak, there are an estimated two billion needles. Until now, the tree had never been photographed in its entirety. A team of photographers from National Geographic worked with scientists from California’s Sequoia National Park to try to be the first. It took an intricate set of pulleys and levers to scale the tree, which one scientist argues is the largest in the world (if you take into account width). After stitching together 126 separate photos, we are left with this mind-blowing portrait of “The President” captured in a single photo for the first time.
Hiller Lake: Western Australia. Scientists cannot explain the pink colour although they have proven it is not due to the presence of algae.

Lake Hillier, Middle Island, Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia - the most notable feature of this lake is its rose pink color; the only vividly pink lake in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when placed in a separate container. Its color remains a mystery and while proven not to be due to algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, there is still no explanation for its color.
#1 on my travel bucket list Go to Hillier Lake, Western Australia: The pink and lovely Hillier Lake is the only vividly pink lake you will find in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when water is removed and placed in a separate container. Its startling color remains a mystery and while scientists have proven it's not due to the presence of algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, they still can't explain why it's pink...

Skaftafell Ice Cave - Located within Iceland’s own Skaftafell National Park, the whimsical crystal cave is the result of centuries old ice coming down the slopes of Öræfajökull.
Skaftafell Ice Cave - Iceland! #Iceland #icecave #travel
Svínafellsjökull glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland The blue Crystal Cave ice cave is illuminated by the evening sun in Svinafellsjokull in Skaftafell, Iceland. Created by the forces of the Vatnajokull ice cap in the south of the volcanic island, the deep blue cave was formed by the glacier meeting the coastline. The centuries-old ice that has come from the slopes of 6,921 feet tall Oaefajokull, Iceland's tallest active volcano, has compressed all air out of the ice adding to the texture and colour of the cave.... cave is accessible through a 22 foot entrance on the shoreline in Skaftafell national park.

Finding out I have relatives in China has definitely put the beautiful place near the top of my bucket list. Heaven’s Gate Mountain... stairway to heaven
Welcome To Zhangjiajie City, China. About 8KM from downtown of Zhangjiajie lies the Tianmen Mountain, also known as Heaven Gate Mountain. By looking at the picture above, there's no need to ask why this is named Heaven’s Gate. This beautiful site is quite a journey to get to. Look at the other pictures and read about this place, amazing!
Heaven's Gate Stairs ,Tian Men Shan China. Tianmen (“Heavenly Gate”) Mountain National Forest Park lies only 8 kilometers south of the city of Zhangjiajie.Being situated immediately next door to the city of Zhangjiajie, Tianmen Mountain has traditionally been perceived by the residents of Zhangjiajie as the very soul of the city, even if the Zhangjiajie area in general has in more recent years become much more strongly identified, at least by outsiders, with the strangely eroded block-and-obelisk landscapes of Wulingyuan Scenic Area.

"I dreamt I was walking down a street lined with shops (very like Surbiton or Wimbledon) and people were playing football - even the postman. I observed a guy bullying a smaller lad so went over to stop it. It turned into a fight and I punched the bully so hard he flipped over and over then turned into a penny in mid-air then rolled down the grate in the road!" RG [Pic.

Victoria Falls in Africa - when I first saw these falls I was utterly impressed. Turned out what I glimpsed through the trees was only a small part of the falls. Over a mile wide and 100 metres high, these are some amazing cascades. When you're there make sure you do the rafting. Class 4 and 5 all the way (and one class 6 which you walk around) - the BEST!
