Last Best Places

Friday, February 2nd, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Last Best Places

This cool site is divided into three of the world’s most interesting and amazing ecosystems. They are: The Great Barrier Reef, Tongass National Forest and The Grand Canyon.

The Great Barrier Reef – Click this section’s column to be taken to the introduction for it. Then click the Begin Your Journey link at the bottom of the page. I was upset to find that the Top 5 Reasons to Go and the Photo Gallery for this section didn’t work, but they may just have been down when I was there. So, I just clicked past them and checked out the Map area instead. The maps on this site are really cool! They are all 3D and you can mouse over the red dots on them to get more information about a particular area. The next part of this section is The Reef in Brief and it goes into some facts about the reef, as well as, gives you another map to check out.

Tongass National Forest – Here you get the same layout as the previous section, but while the Top 5 didn’t work, the 10 Questions with Chris does. You’ll need your sound on to hear them. I learned a lot from just listening to this question and answer section. Again, the photo gallery didn’t work, so I went straight on to the map section. (Hopefully the sections will work for you!) Next, check out the two maps and remember that you can just mouse over the red dots for more information.

The Grand Canyon – Here I felt like I hit the jackpot! The Top 5 Reasons to Go worked, the 10 Questions with Chris worked (I love the story about the ringtail cats. To see what they look like, go here) and the photo gallery worked! Check out some really amazing images from the Grand Canyon. In to the Map section, you’ll find not only a map of the river, but also one of how the canyon is situated from a top view. You can really see everything!

I hope you enjoyed your journey through these Last Best Places. I know I did!…st_best_places/
