If we can live forever in this beautiful paradise we call Earth.  But by faith, maybe, we will see a more beautiful place! I live for life, I enjoy life. Unfortunately it is so fleeting!

Looks like an Alien world. What an amazing planet we live on. Everywhere  I have ever been has had something so special and amazing that could never be created by a person. Another reason we need to restore and take care of this planet,

Come on MSN! The Dead Sea is located in both Israel and Jordan, with the border splitting the body of water down the center.

Zion National Park...the canyon. We were the only visitors early one winter morning, It had rained the night before and there were narrow but very high waterfalls all down the canyon that were gone later in the day.  It was misting and we had the whole canyon to ourselves.  When the sun came up we were blessed with seeing it through a sacred rock formation at the entrance to the canyon.

 

I can understand why my Native Indian ancestors hold this canyon as most sacred.  We felt surrounded by the Spirits and I carry this feeling with me still today, many many years later.  This will be where our ashes are returned to the earth as our Souls soar above, watching over our loved ones.

What about "Devil's Half Acre"  and the area between Ten Sleep and Worland.  The areas are so "Other worldly" that they were used as alien worlds for the movie "Star Ship Troopers".
