Outdoors + Nature

Natural Wonders

by Nicola McCormack

Rather than dwell on the catalog of man-made misery the world endured throughout 2009, we're starting 2010 with a more optimistic perspective—highlighting the many awesome natural events that will be thrilling travelers in the year ahead. If you need a reminder of what's wonderful about this big old world of ours, consider the elephant migration in Botswana that starts in June, the most amazing meteor shower as seen from California's Joshua Tree National Park in August, or the march of the red crabs on Australia's Christmas Island come November. See? There's plenty of excitement and joy—as well as endless photo opportunities—to be had courtesy of Mother Nature. Our month-by-month checklist will get you to the right place at the right time to catch these natural wonders at their best.
