Until now, I never...
Knew the 7 Natural Wonders of the World

When we were in Banff on our camping trip, we went to Lake Louise, which I had read in our guide book was one of the “natural wonders of the world”.  It was spectacular and I could see why it would be considered one of the wonders of the world, but then I also wondered what the other wonders were.  So today I decided to find out.  Turns out the Seven Wonders of the Natural World are:

  1. Mount Everest
  2. The Grand Canyon
  3. The Northern Lights
  4. The Harbor at Rio de Janeiro
  5. The Great Barrier Reef
  6. Paricutin Volcano
  7. Victoria Falls

Hmmmm, where was Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada?  Well it turns out that while the above list of 7 wonders seems to be a very agreed upon list of the top 7 wonders of the world, there are also a whole bunch of other “natural wonders” lists out there and from my internet search, it seems like Lake Louise is typically is on the top of Natural Wonders of Canada lists.  Canada is crazy beautiful – most of it seems like a national park, so making it to the top of that list is pretty impressive.  I was impressed, I must say.
