Day 100: Something Beautiful—Breathtaking Mount Raima

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for every day of the year.

Mount Roraima — one of the oldest formations on Earth. A natural border between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana in South America. It is also called Roraima Tepuior Cerro Roraima. First reported by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1596, the plateau is protected from the rest of the world by 400 meter cliffs on all sides.

The incredible double tiered falls on every side seems most spectacular. But then, the view of the surrounding area at different angles of the sun make it an ethereal landscape. Eclipsed only by the otherworldly quality of seeing it engulfed in fog. Unbelievable. The inspiration for the destination of adventuring elders in Pixar’s animated film “Up.”
