As a fresh way to kick off the work week, My Wonderful World is now bringing our readers a Monday-Funday Photo of the Week. Designed not only around aesthetics, this photo sharing start-to-the-week is also about facilitating geographic discussion on current events and relevant topics.
Above are the Julian Alps in Northwestern Slovenia
And finally, a photo taken in Stanley, Idaho, USA
To learn more about how these spectacular sites came to be, check out this Map Gallery from National Geographic Education and the PALEOMAP Project, which shows the movement of Earth’s tectonic plates from 600 millons years ago to present day.
