Just like man, mother nature is able to construct some pretty spectacular things. From hidden caves to unbelievable rock formations, mother nature has certainly left her mark in the shape of magnificent natural wonders.
The Marble Caves
The Marble Caves, also known as the Cuevas de Mármol, are located in solid marble that borders Lake General Carrera. The lake spans the Chile-Argentine border and is flocked to by adventurers everywhere. The marbleized effects and colors come from 6,000 years of wave erosion.
Elephant Rock or Roccia dell’Elefante is a large stone mass near State Road 134, just outside Castelsardo, Sardinia, Italy. The rock used to be a part of Monte Casteddazzu. However, it one day broke off and rolled down the valley, to the side of the road.
The Devils Postpile
The Devils Postpile is located in northeastern Madera County in eastern California. The columns tower 60 feet high and are a rare example of columnar basalt. Scientists report the formation was most likely created by lava flow around 100,000 years ago.
Waitomo Glowworm Cave
Not this is not a ride at Disney, this is a part of the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. The caves are located on the North Island of New Zealand. The popular tourist attraction is lit up by Arachnocampa luminosa, a glowworm species found exclusively in New Zealand.
The Crooked Forest
No photoshop here, this forest of oddly-shaped trees is located outside of Nowe Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland. The grove is approximately filled with 100 pines tree that were planted around 1930. There are various theories as to how and why the trees grow this way, but none have been confirmed.
