Nature is a broad realm of the natural, physical and material things existing in our world and/or universe. It is a wide spectrum of living and non-living entities. For me, it is all about wildlife and the planet we call home. There is so much to explore that we can’t see it all in a lifetime, but I can share a few things that I have experienced in my few years on Earth.

This should be one of the natural wonders of the world, Artists Palette located in Death Valley is a breathtaking spot to sit and contemplate one’s life.
