Morning mist rolls in over Moraine Lake, one of several glacial lakes in Alberta's Banff National Park. There are more than a thousand glaciers in the park, plus the highest town in Canada (Banff), the largest cave system in the country (Castleguard Caves), and several national historic sites.

In operation between 1876 and 1879, Nevada's Ward Charcoal Ovens—here glowing with filtered lights that simulate functioning ovens—were built to produce charcoal from pinyon pine and juniper. In the years following, the ovens are said to have served as shelters for workmen and hideouts for stagecoach bandits. Today they're the main attraction in Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park.

Norway's 63,000-mile coastline boasts otherworldly fjords, bays, and islands. Here, the towering peaks of Norway’s Lofoten Islands make Kirkefjorden seem a world unto itself.

Water rushes over Horseshoe Falls, one of the three falls that make up world-famous Niagara Falls. The waterfalls straddle the border between Canada and the United States; Horseshoe is on the Canadian side, in the province of Ontario. Every 60 seconds, six million cubic feet of water rushes over the falls—enough water to fill a million bathtubs each minute.
