Monday Funday Photo of the Week: Majestic Mountains

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.

Today’s topic is a range (pun intended) of breathtaking views that celebrate some of the most stunning mountains around the world.
