The McKinney Fire—California’s largest so far in 2022—left a vast burn scar on the landscape, while nearby fires filled the air with smoke.
Dust rich in salt often streams from dry mud flats on Mar Chiquita in Argentina.
Zion National Park is home to scenic cliffs, slot canyons, protected wilderness areas, endangered species, and archaeological sites.

Like distant galaxies amid clouds of interstellar dust, chunks of sea ice drift through graceful swirls of grease ice in the frigid waters of Foxe Basin near Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. Sea ice often begins as grease ice, a soupy slick of tiny ice crystals on the ocean's surface. As... Read More
