Tao has announced his second list to be compiled. It's the seven natural wonders of the Unity. This list is meant to compile the wonderful works of nature across the Unity. That said, wonders for this category must not be altered by mankind to a significant extent. (A few houses wouldn't take a mountain range or forest off the list, but no city is going to be classified as a natural wonder.) The wonders can be big or small, but preferably significant. (The mossy rock of Babylon probably won't make the list.) Anyway, this is a good category to make your natural claim to fame so post away. Like before, give everyone a fair chance before second posts.
Seven Natural Wonders of the Unity
A list of seven amazing natural sights.
The greatest natural wonder of Fatatatutti is the Thousand-Mile Beach. Actually more than 1200 miles (1900 kilometers) long and varying from 100 yards (90 meters) to 2 miles (3 kilometers) wide, it stretches along much of the north and west coasts of the island. It consists of fine white sand.
Accessible only by boat, aircraft and footpaths, it attracts locals and tourists alike. Some of the best surfing in Fatatatutti is on the northern stretches during the winter.
Thousand-Mile Beach is protected by act of Parliament and a sizeable fleet of submarines.
(Thanks so much for posting Bruddah! You are welcome to post in all the list of wonders of the Unity even though you are slightly outside the Unity. Thanks again; I enjoyed your post. Here's mine...)
Located near the center of the Central Mountains of Shangri La-La-La, Mt. Shangri rises over 8,000 meters into the air as the tallest mountain in Shangri La-La-La and the Unity. (Unless, someone wishes to dispute that claim) Its snowcapped peak is featured on the Shangri La-La-La flag and is the heart of the nation.
Mt. Shangri is home to much high-altitude wildlife found nowhere else in the Unity. Long horned antelopes, yaks, foxes, red raccoon, rabbits, and varieties of migratory birds flourish in the lower to mid-mountain landscape. However, the summit remains sparsely populated. There is actually a plethora of biodiversity in the lower to mid-level altitudes and new species are still being discovered including varieties of frogs, amphibians, and insects. New bacterial evidence shows the existence of microscopic life even in the higher altitudes.
Its snowy peak stretches high into the deep azure sky and stands as the pinnacle of mountain climbing achievement for many. Its first accent was made within the last century by Shangri mountain nomads. Though, due to centuries of isolationism, foreign mountaineers have rarely climbed parts of this mountain.
Mount Shangri is held in high regard among the people of Shangri La-La-La. It was from the highlands that much of Shangri culture emerged and Mt. Shangri stands not only as a geographic wonder, but a cultural hub of the Shangri people. At the lower altitudes, wandering nomads still roam the highlands and decorated Buddhist monasteries fly colorful Dar Cho. Mount Shangri La-La-La stands resolute reaching into the sky, bringing wonder to all those around it.
