On the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains stands the world’s third largest tree in terms of volume. Locals call it “The President.” “The President” is far from being the world’s tallest tree, but still, it measures 247 feet (75 m) tall. I

Surreal Frozen Lake Michigan Turns Into a Magical Wonderland

Lake Michigan is becoming one of the most photogenic lakes when springtime arrives, after a long cold winter influenced by the Polar Vortex.

20 Badass Trees That Refused To Die Even At The Harshest Conditions

Whether they’re growing in the middle of gale-force winds, on the tops of rocky platforms, inside concrete tunnels, or even growing out of each other, trees know how to survive in places that few living organisms can, which explains why th

While most of us, who also have the privilege of using the Internet on a daily basis and therefore are able to read this, don’t have any problems getting fresh drinking water, that’s not the case for everyone.

I Captured The Raw Beauty Of Greenland – A Place That Might Not Exist Anymore In The Near Future (24 Pics)

Greenland is hot! Quite literally. Summer this year has been one of the hottest summers in Greenland. The icecap is melting faster than ever before. The current melt was only predicted to happen in 2070. And with 50 years ‘ahead of schedule’ it will only get worse. But Greenland is also ‘hot’ in another way. This summer alone, 40 cruise ships visited the relatively small town Ilulissat on
