What’s the most spectacular natural wonder you’ve ever seen?

I started thinking about this after my friend Kerry posted a picture of the Grand Canyon on Facebook, because when you travel a lot I think it’s easy to fall in love with incredible vistas and impressive buildings and monuments, but there are some natural wonders that are so amazing that seeing them in reality is a surreal experience. It’s almost impossible to take them in.

Grand CanyonFor me, I think the Grand Canyon is simply awe-inspiring, just so much bigger than you could ever imagine, with all those spectacular colours…

joshua_tree…and the Joshua Tree Natural Monument is probably one of the most eerily beautiful places I’ve ever been – not least because the best time to visit is sunset. And yes I did want to go there because of the U2 album…

Craters of the Moonthe Craters of the Moon – hydrothermal eruption craters – in Taupo, New Zealand are AWESOME (this is No 1 Son pretending to be the helicopter we’d just been in)…

Niagara…but if I had to choose then I think Niagara Falls is probably the most spectacular natural wonder I’ve ever seen. I’ve visited around four times, and the sheer magnitude of the Falls takes your breath away – particularly at night in the winter when they’re illuminated.

What’s the most spectacular natural wonder you’ve ever seen? I’d love to know.
