Los Nevados National Natural Park is a national park located in the Cordillera Central of the Colombian Andes. The area is made up of three large (2 of them active) volcanoes. In fact, Nevado del Ruiz erupted as recently 1985, causing devastation to the surrounding area. The other volcanoes are called Nevado de Santa Isabel and Nevado del Tolima. All three have hiking routes to suit various levels of ability and are well worth visiting. The 5,300-metre-high (17,400 ft) volcano Nevado del Ruiz dominates Los Nevados. The area is home to 1250 species of vascular plants, 200 bryophytes, 300 lichens and 180 macroscopic fungi. On the lower slopes and in the valleys the Andean wax palms are dominant. The upper Andean forest has trees reaching up to 30 m (98 ft) in height. The black and white Andean condor, vultur gryphus, with its wingspan of up to three meters (10 feet), can sometimes be spotted gliding along the high cliffs in the park.

Natural Bridges National Monument

Natural Bridges National Monument covers a relatively small area in southeast Utah, close to scenic highway UT 95 between Hanksville and Blanding. It features three huge, stream-carved natural bridges as well as a concentration of Anasazi Indian ruins. The bridges are named Kachina, Owachomo and Sipapu. A natural bridge is formed through erosion by water flowing in the stream bed of the canyon. During periods of flash floods, particularly, the stream undercuts the walls of rock that separate the meanders of the stream, until the rock wall within the meander is undercut and the meander is cut off.

Rainbow Bridge is the largest natural bridge in the world at 290 feet (88 meters) tall and 270 feet (83 meters) across. The bridge has been formed by erosion of the sandstone by water flowing from Navajo Mountain towards the Colorado River. The bridge can be reached by a two-hour boat ride on Lake Powell from either of two marinas near Page, Arizona. It is located in one of the most rugged and remote regions of the United States, it was discovered in 1909 by an expedition that set out to find the great stone arch rumored by the Native Americans.
