Mother Nature is one busy lady. Mother Nature is beautiful and unique because we can see many fantastic things like these 14 things you won’t believe exist. All these nature places are real. It is hard to believe that, but that is true.

Abraham Lake is an artificial lake on the North Saskatchewan River in western Alberta, Canada. The plants on the lake bed release methane gas and methane get frozen once coming close enough to a much colder lake surface, and they keep stacking up below once the weather gets colder and colder during [the] winter season.

04. Giant clouds over Beijing.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research said it was just a giant cumulonimbus cloud. Its unusual shape was formed because the cloud initially developed vertically but began to grow horizontally after meeting with warmer layers of air. Source
05. Underground natural springs in Mexico.
Ik-Kil Cenote, Chichen Itza: A cenote is a natural deposit of underground spring water. Source
06. Giant crystal cave in Nacia, Mexico.
The cave is 950 feet (290 meters) underground. The Naica mining complex yields lead, zinc, copper, silver, and gold zigzags nearly half a mile underground (760 meters). Source
07. Shimmering shores of Vaadhoo, Maldives.

Bioluminescence causes the shoreline to glow at night. This occurs when a micro-organism in the water is disturbed by oxygen. Avatar, much? Source
08. Reflective salt flats in Bolivia.
Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat at 4,086 sq mi. This is not water; the ground is covered in a layer of salt crust so reflective that it perfectly mirrors the sky. Source
09. Light pillars over Moscow.
A light pillar is a visual phenomenon created by light reflection from ice crystals near horizontal parallel planar surfaces. Source
10. Natural salt water fountain off the coast of Oregon.
The Spouting Horn at Cook’s Chasm and Thor’s Well are both salt water fountains driven by the power of the ocean tide. Source
11. Beautiful sandstone formations in Arizona.
The Wave is a sandstone formation on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, located in the northern portion of the U.S. state of Arizona. Source
12. Rainbow Eucalyptus trees in Kailua, Hawaii.
The multi-colored streaks on its trunk come from patches of outer bark that are shed annually at different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. Source
13. Spiderweb cocooned trees in Pakistan.
An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters. Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in ghostly spider webs. Source
14. The Blood Falls in Antarctica.
