If you love nature, you’ll love this blog. Here at Union Atlantic Electricity, we love the earth and all of it’s amazing wonders. We have a deep respect for this planet that translates into how we search long and hard for ways to access sustainable energy sources to give our customers impressive, cost-effective power and electricity. However, there’s no need for electricity when visiting these impressive world wonders, they operate all on their own! This list boasts ten beautiful example of the beauty and spontaneity of nature and this world in general. Without further ado, here’s wonder number one.
The Northern Lights:
There’s a reason the northern lights are on almost everyone’s bucket list. They are truly astounding. Scientifically known as aurora borealis, but also known as northern lights/polar lights, aurora is a naturally occurring light display of many colors in the sky. You can really only see this display if you are in Northern Europe, Canada or Alaska. Trust us, the inaccessibility of it just makes it even more desirable, and worthwhile if you do visit.
Even if you have no plans to hike this natural behemoth, it’s still something amazing to marvel at. Known in Nepal and Tibet, where it is based, as Sagarmāthā and in Tibetan as Chomolungma, respectively, this mountain range is the highest peak of the Himalayan mountains. Additionally, it is the Earth’s highest mountain above sea level and its first ascenders were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
Great Barrier Reef:
This amazing feat of nature is located off the coast of Queensland, Australia. The Great Barrier Reef is very popular because it is the largest living thing on Earth and can be seen even from space. It is really big! In total, the Great Barrier Reef is 2,300 km-long and boasts a bunch of impressive flora and fauna.
Probably the coolest natural wonder in the United States, the Grand Canyon is a beautiful, naturally-occurring canyon that features layers of red rock and a subsequent rich geological history. The Colorado River runs through it, perfect for kayaking or canoeing. If you want to see the canyons though, you’ll have to hike. A lot of people hike to the very bottom, for the oasis-like campground there.
Victoria Falls is truly one of the most astounding natural wonders on the list. This beautiful waterfall is located in southern Africa between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It occurs naturally on the Zambezi River and is truly worth a glance.
The Harbor in Rio de Janeiro:
Also known as the Bay of Rio Janeiro, or Guanabara Bay by the natives, to which it means “arm of the sea,” the Harbor of Rio truly deserves a spot on the list of the best natural wonders of the world. This balloon-shaped bay stretches 20 miles and is picturesque at every point.
