The park encompasses more than 6 million acres in a complete sub-arctic ecosystem. It features North America’s highest mountain, 20,320-foot tall Mount McKinley. The aurora is a beautiful, phenomenon, occurring year-round. Only in the fall, winter and early spring, is there enough darkness to allow us to see the northern lights when they occur. The aurora borealis occurs when a coronal mass ejection, a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields, interacts with elements in the earth’s atmosphere. Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares.

Nambung National Park is located 245km north of Perth. In the heart of Nambung National Park lies the Pinnacles Desert, one of Australia’s best known landscapes. Nambung National Park covers an area of approximately 17491 hectares. Where, thousands of huge limestone pillars rise from the shifting Sand Dunes and resemble a landscape from another Planet. These amazing natural limestone structures were formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago, after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. It’s truly an amazing place!

Kakadu National Park is Australia’s biggest national park that features rugged escarpments, lush rainforest and rock art galleries up to 50,000 years old. Park is situated in Northern Territory of Australia near Darwin. There are several settlements in the park, and much of Kakadu is Aboriginal land, leased to the government for its current use. About one-third of the park rangers are Aboriginal people. Some places enclosed by the park, but not part of it are designated for other purposes like uranium mining.

Located at the northern end of the Chihuahuan Desert of Southern New Mexico, lies the amazing national treasure known as the White Sands National Monument. The closest major airport is in El Paso, Texas, a two hour drive away. The White Sands covers 275 square miles. About half of those 275 square miles are within the White Sands National Monument. It is also called White Sands Desert but this is not a desert of sand but a desert of gypsum. You will find there the largest concentration of white pristine gypsum sand in the world. The best way to explore the park and taking sunrise and sunset pictures is to camp there.

Grand Canyon is about 200 miles long, about a mile deep gash in the earth. It is located in the northwest corner of Arizona. It was formed during 6 million years of geological activity and erosion by the Colorado River. Author did not manipulate images in any way except to boost the color saturation a bit and to try to sharpen it. Photos was taken in the very early morning or late evening hours when you could capture some stunning images.

This guy capture Hyena cubs and train them, but they’re wild animals. I don`t think than he can train them to protect and guard. They could really hurt some one (including the owner). Adults measure 95.0—165.8 cm in body length, and have a shoulder height of 70.0–91.5 cm. Spotted hyenas in Zambia, with males weighing on average 67.6 kg (149 lb), and females 69.2 kg (153 lb).
