A few years ago I went travelling around Vietnam, one of the first stops after Ho Chi Minh City was Mui Ne. Mui Ne is a beach resort town along the South China Sea in Southeast Vietnam. With a long, palm-lined stretch of sand, it has steady wind conditions that make it a top destination for windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and other water sports. You can see someone kite surfing in the background!
Death Valley National Park is extremely diverse. This is Salt Creek (to the left of the frame), named for its extreme salinity - at certain times of the year it is even more saline than the ocean! It is home to the world's only remaining population of pupfish. The scrubby plants in the area surrounding Salt Creek survive on the saltwater by drawing out the salt and transferring it to its leaves. The salt coats the plant, deflecting the sunlight and helping the plant to survive in the harsh summer months.

Still can't believe this city was built on top of a 200 meters high rock two thousand years ago!
