I DEF have to read this thread - no time now...........

if you're talking natural Monuments..

I've been to Monument Valley in north Arizona




i assume you're talking human created............



well..... i live in nyc so "The Twins" {Towers} really did become monumental to me b/c as an artist and nature lover thier plain facade but at such heights really reflected all manner of sky/cloud & sunlight colors.............
they really could look amazing wonderous!!!
and Lady Liberty is quite the gal!

Love the The Arch in St Loius! that ALSO does an beautiful sky/light/cloud reflection thing!

I really wanted to visit the Aricebo Radio Telescope {featured in the moive "Contact"} when i got a chance to visit Puerto Rico............
but i don't do winding moutain roads well,even in -like New England (USA). So i had to give THAT one up!

while it dosen't qualify b/c it's a whole slew of biuldings/monuments ~~
the National Mall in Washington DCV is a very moving place. Luckily I've strolled it a number of times.

the monuments around the world I'd love to see the most......


OK, not hard........

1- The Pyramids
2- The Eiffel Tower
3- The Blue Mosque {Istambu, Turkey}
4- and perhaps The Tal Mahal


looking foward to reading your lists soon

The Blue Mosque in Istanbul is the most beautiful building I've ever seen. Hagia Sofia is impressive, too. Ephesus is amazing. I went to Turkey in May 2006.

I can't think of a specific monument, however, the Grand Canyon was the most incredible thing I have ever seen in my life. Beautiful.
