Welcome to Monday Morning M... Wonder!


Okay, so this needs a better name, but I’m all about starting off my work week with a little wonder. Atlas Obscura has over 16,000 places in our database, with new places getting added every day. So it’s easy for some of the incredible sites in our collection to get lost (having too much wonder is a good problem to have). Every Monday morning I’m going to surface one of the amazing places from our database, and hopefully give us all something to marvel at (and brag to our coworkers about).

Click through and learn about each amazing place and then click back to the forums to drop a comment them!

For our inaugural edition, I present Caño Cristales, a river in Colombia that explodes into an eye-popping alien landscape only once a year:


@Dylan and I went there in 2011, and made this video:


This place has been on my radar for a while , I’ll get to Colombia sometime and see it.


Monday Morning Marvel would’ve been nice, but I guess you probably don’t want people posting random Marvel comics in here (unless they’re relevant, of course.)


Personally, I will always encourage discussion of Marvel Comics.
