Tokyo Skytree is a broadcasting tower , restaurant, and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo, Japan. It became the tallest structure in Japan in 2010 and reached its full height of 634.0 metres (2,080 ft) in March 2011, making it the tallest tower in the world, displacing the Canton Tower, and the second tallest structure in the world after Burj Khalifa (829.8 m/2,722 ft).

One of its main purposes is to relay television and radio broadcast signals; Tokyo’s current facility, Tokyo Tower with a height of 333 m (1,093 ft), no longer gives complete digital terrestrial television broadcasting coverage because it is surrounded by many high-rise buildings. The project was completed on 29 February 2012, with the tower opening to the public on 22 May 2012

Sea Otters

The Sea Otter is a marine mammal native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean.  The sea otter’s primary form of insulation is an exceptionally thick coat of fur, the densest in the animal kingdom. Although it can walk on land, the sea otter lives mostly in the ocean.
The sea otter inhabits offshore environments, where it dives to the sea floor to forage. It preys mostly on marine invertebrates such as sea urchins, various molluscs and crustaceans, and some species of fish. Its foraging and eating habits are noteworthy in several respects. First, its use of rocks to dislodge prey and to open shells makes it one of the few mammal species to use tools.

Picaninny Gorge – Bungle Bungles -WA

Picaninny Gorge

Picaninny Gorge – Bungle Bungles – WA

Picaninny Gorge  in the Bungle Bungles (Purnululu) means sandstone in the local Kija Aboriginal language. The name “Bungle Bungle” may come from the corruption of an Aboriginal name for the area, or from a misspelling of “bundle bundle”, one of the common Kimberley grasses found here.  The distinctive beehive-shaped towers of the Bungle Bungle are made up of a very fragile sandstone.

The area was listed as a world heritage site in July 2003, and has legendary status as one of the most unique and remote natural wonders in Australia, if not the world. The splendid isolation of the Bungles is a great attraction to trekkers.
