Water, Fire and Ice!

In celebration of Earth Day this week, I thought I’d give you a tour of water, fire and ice from my place in the world.

The first picture is not my own as I have not yet scaled these heights.  Still, can you see me waving from the northwest corner of the USA?

Notice the blue everywhere!   Water covers 70% of the Earth’s surface and the Pacific Ocean, the largest body of water takes up 30%. I’m thankful to enjoy its beauty on Washington’s rugged coast.

Further south in Oregon lies the Graveyard of the Pacific where you can see the wreck of the Peter Iredale. Perhaps the ocean was misnamed by Ferdinand Magellan who thought its waters peaceful?

Fortunately for us, we enjoyed tranquil sailing on the Pacific during last fall’s cruise to California.  I hope it’s not our last.

For fire let’s go to Yellowstone National Park, which sits in the caldera of a giant super volcano, as evidenced by erupting geysers and bubbling hot springs! I never get tired of visiting this masterpiece of creation!

Lastly,  there’s no better place to see ice than in Alaska’s Glacier Bay.

So there you have it!  Water, Fire, Ice!

Yes, our planet can be wild and turbulent, but it’s still rather magnificent don’t you think?

  1. Oh Susanne, your photos are incredible! Once we get to Spokane next year, Yellowstone is at the top of my list to visit. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous pics with us at Sunday Stills!

  2. The Pacific is definitely not pacific! I totally agree on Yellowstone. So much weird and wonderful stuff to see.

  3. Wow, fantastic photos, loved every single one of them! It’s amazing how much can be found in just one corner of the world 🙌
