The sun sets on a field of cactii sprinkled with desert marigolds at Sahuaro National Park, near Tucson, Arizona
A realm of dreams is that sublimest chasm
Cleft by the gods in Arizona's plain,
Where peak on peak, shrine, fortress, weird phantasm,
Crowd the abyss and make our grandeur vain!
Where festal sounds are heard if we but harken,
And shy forms flit and meet till moonlight wanes,
And the wind dies, and eerie shadows darken,
For over peak and plain enchantment reigns. - Edna Dean Proctor.
The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower is in Shanghai, China. Its location at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district by the side of Huangpu River, opposite The Bund, makes it a distinct landmark in the area. The tower has fifteen observatory levels. The project also contains exhibition facilities, restaurants and a shopping mall. There is also a 20-room hotel called the Space Hotel between the two large spheres. The upper observation platform has an outside area with a glass floor.
