Just a little further to the east, we spotted sacred and majestic 'Uluru'. You may recognize it by its more popular name of 'Ayers Rock'. I have never had the opportunity to visit Australia, but one glorious day, I hope to be standing amazed beside this natural wonder. Can't wait to read your thoughts of 'Uluru'.
Maybe these aren’t ‘mystery’ locations, since you guys are so brilliant with your Geography! Well done! This is Mount Vesuvius in Italy, the volcano that buried the port city of Pompeii in 79 AD. The last eruption of this sleeping giant was March 1944. Okay…let’s see what you know about this snow and glacier covered masterpiece, and its unique distinction.

Where natural beauty and human recklessness collide in a big way.
Madagascar is so beautiful and so unique, but seeing the streams choked with silt as a result of inland deforestation really saddens me. I hope things can turn around there and future generations will be able to experience this place. Have you been there? What is it like?
