Paragliders float through the clouds that surround snowcapped Mount Fuji in Japan. At 12,388 feet (3,776 meters), Fuji is Japan’s highest peak. But its relatively easy-to-scale flanks draw flocks of amateur climbers to its summit-some 400,000 every year.

飘浮在云间的滑翔伞围绕着顶部被白雪覆盖的日本富士山。凭借12388英尺(3776米)的海拔,富士山是日本最高的山峰。但是它相对容易攀登的侧面,吸引了众多业余登山者前来登顶–大约每年400000人。

Trails of lightning backlight Chimney Rock in southwest Colorado’s San Juan National Forest. Home to ancestors of the Pueblo Indians more than 1,000 years ago, the area around Chimney Rock has been a designated archaeological area and national historic site since 1970.

闪电的光迹从背后照亮了位于西南科罗拉多的圣胡国家森林里的烟囱岩。作为远在1000多年以前普艾布罗印第安人祖先的家园,烟囱岩周围的这个地区自1970年起就成为了指定考古区域和国家历史遗址。

Irrigation Fields, Qatar, 2003
Photograph by Robb Kendrick

Irrigated crop fields stand out starkly against an expanse of Qatari desert. Such farms provide Qataris with some fruits and vegetables, but most of their food is imported. Government efforts to increase domestic agriculture are complicated by the paucity of fresh water in this parched desert nation.

在卡塔尔广阔的沙漠里,灌溉农作物田的问题显得尤为突出。这些农民提供给卡塔尔人水果和蔬菜,但他们自己的大部分食物依靠进口。在这个炎热的沙漠国家里,由于淡水储量极小,政府在改进国内农业上所做的努力举步维艰。

Mongolian herdsmen drive horses back into the Darhad Valley after wintering on the other side of the 10,000-foot (3,000-meter) mountains that rise in the background. People have moved their herds over these mountains for generations. But a government effort to transition Mongolia’s nomadic people to more stable urban lives could soon mean the end of this twice-yearly trek.

在背后那些10000英尺(3000米)高的山峰的另一面过完冬天之后,蒙古牧民驱赶着马群回到Darhad山谷。一代复一代,人们带着他们的牧群翻越这些山峰。但是政府正在将蒙古游牧民族转变成稳定城市生活的努力很快将成为这种一年两次艰苦跋涉的终点。

The city of Shibam, Yemen, rises from the Rub al Khali, or Empty Quarter, a sea of sand that occupies one-fifth of the Arabian Peninsula. The distinctive mud-brick skyscrapers that house Shibam’s 5,000 residents have earned the city its nickname: “Manhattan of the Desert.”
