    10. Wild Landscapes
    We followed photographer @ana__cuba to Tolar Grande, a small village in northwestern Argentina. “Around 150 people live in Tolar Grande, so it feels completely desolate. The surrounding landscape—like the Cordon Sagrado del Macom pictured here—is surreal. I feel like I can’t take any credit for this photograph, because it’s really easy to take beautiful pictures when nature flaunts itself so overwhelmingly.”

    9. Rare Find
    Vicuñas (cousins of the alpaca and llama) aren’t rare in the salt flats surrounding Tolar Grande. But according to @ana__cuba, “It is rare (or hard, at least) to actually spot them, as they blend in perfectly with the landscape’s pastel colors!”

    8. Volcanic Activity
    Nicaragua’s Isla de Ometepe was formed by two volcanoes (which are now joined by an isthmus) that rise from the middle of Lake Nicaragua. Both of the island’s volcanoes—named Concepción and Maderas—are hikeable, if you dare.

    3. Golden Gate Getaway
    Fun fact: The steel used to build the Golden Gate Bridge was delivered to the construction team coated in a burnt red primer to protect it from corrosive elements. The bridge’s architect, Irving Morrow, liked the way the primer’s vivid hue complemented the surrounding scenery, so he decided to paint the structure with the "International Orange” color for which it’s famous today.
