Well I live in Utah and in my opinion, pretty much the whole state is one big wonder! Zion, Moab, high Uintas, Flaming Gorge, Arches...

You certainly have found some wonderous spots! Of course, I love my little patch of land like it was one of the Earth's great wonders as well.

Oh my. I'd love to see all of those gorgeous spots!

I think the most astonishing thing here is the summer temps! It's inching up already and I'm thinking, as I do each year, how does anyone survive this hostile environment!

I'd much rather spend the summer in any of those gorgeous places!

Thank you for sharing this lovely post!

Nice collection of the wonders. According to Wikipedia wonder is "an emotion comparable to surprise that people feel when perceiving something rare or unexpected." I'd say these qualify♫♪

Nora and Lola, such spectacular photos! I have always loved the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, Yellowstone Park, and driving along the Pacific Coast Highway from California to Oregon.

Earth really is a beautiful place. Just wish it wasn't so expensive to travel, then we could all visit these magnificent wonders. I have to say that ledge overlooking the Grand Canyon would scare the hell out of me! Thanks for sharing.

I hope you & your friends here can join me for the next Blog Hop Saturday! on Sat June 2nd.

You Are Perfect To Me

Wow. Have you been to all of those places?

I think I'd love to see them all...perhaps a few from a distance, though!
