Weird World Wonders: Part 2

Socotra, Yemen

The island of Socotra, at the mouth of the Gulf of Aden, has been called the most alien-looking place on Earth. The most bizarre of the bunch is the dragon’s blood tree, which looks like a big stalk of broccoli and has red blood — dark red resin, that is.

Split Apple Rock, New Zealand

Interesting rock formations are abundant in Abel Tasman National Park on New Zealand's South Island, but none is weirder than Split Apple Rock, rising from the water of Tasman Bay. The giant boulder has been broken in two pieces so cleanly that it’s almost as if a giant hit it with an axe.

White Desert, Egypt

Western Egypt's White Desert gets its name from the chalk that whitewashes the place. The chalk stands tall in formations that have been eroded by sandstorms into fantastic shapes — mushrooms, spires, pinnacles and anvils.

The Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

It just doesn’t look like something nature would have created on its own. But that’s exactly what it is — a field of thousands and thousands of basalt columns formed by ancient volcanic activity. Follow in the giant’s footsteps with a trek down the causeway to the sea.

Devils Tower, Wyoming

It seems almost inevitable that a natural feature as unearthly as Devils Tower might be considered supernatural. Scientists aren’t sure how the monolith was formed, but they agree the rock came from within the Earth, not from another planet.
