Our Beautiful World-Strange

 “This is where it all begins. Everything starts here, today.” 
― David NichollsOne Day  

  The theme for this week's pictures on the Our Beautiful World blog is "Strange".  In looking through my billions and billions of pictures, the strangest, most awesome ones I could find were nature related.  Mother Nature is a  force to behold.  And I couldn't choose just one!

The tenacity of the will to live!!
     This is a tree growing out of sheer rock on the right, with roots stretching over to deeper soil for nourishment on the left.  I saw this on a small boat trip we took on Lake Superior, part of the
 Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore off Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The phenomenal Bay of Fundy
       The Bay of Fundy is located along the coasts of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Maine.  It is considered to be one of the seven wonders of North America.  We can truly say we have walked the ocean floor! I have linked to a youtube film which helps explain why it called a wonder.

Canyon de Chelly
     Another spectacular view of Mother Nature!  I took this from an overlook at Canyon de Chelly (pronounced "shay") of the Spider Rocks, located in northeastern Arizona.

    And my last picture for the "Strange" Theme was taken on one of our road trips, I can't remember where in the States, but a reminder of what a world we live see all these wonders of nature, and then to live in a country where people have to be warned to not eat food from trash barrells!
