18 Places to Feel Dwarfed by Nature

Sure we present a lot of cool new hotels and awesome architectural sites, but to some travelers, those things don’t mean a thing. Adventure seekers and nature lovers like to be swallowed whole by the natural beauty that surrounds them. The Matador Network recently scoped out 18 places that have the ability to make one feel very, very small. Here are a few of these awe-inspiring locations.
