Our winners today 🍍

🥇 Kim's Quest #46: The Sunken Cemetery of Camiguin Island by @ybanezkim26

The old church lost its roof, but the whole complex of walls and columns remained standing even after the powerful earthquake and volcanic eruption. This indicates how sturdy the structure was. Other structures that remained are the ruins of the bell tower and convent. For me, it was a place of reflection, as with the other places we visited. I spent most of my time there wondering how one eruption dramatically altered everything in the area. I also wondered how that "beautiful scar" remained standing even after more than a century had passed.

🥈 Travel east - The Holy Mountain of Grabarka by @astinmin

Although I turned toward atheism a long time ago, it doesn't mean that I gave up spirituality. Places where I feel the deep faith and hope of other people move me a lot.Places like the Holy Mountain of Grabarka, an Orthodox sanctuary famous for many healings.Catholicism dominates in Poland, and where I live, there are few signs of the presence of other religions. Therefore, the trip to the northeast of the country was unique in this respect. These are areas where you can see Orthodox churches as often as Catholic ones.

🥉 My California - Wilflowers and Rocks in Badger Canyon by @derekrichardson

I continued working my way up the canyon and it narrowed and became more overgrown. Eventually I came upon a few dry waterfalls that I had to climb. Luckily someone had ropes tied up already. At one point I came to a fork in the canyon and both looked brutal. So I decided to climb straight up out the west side of the canyon. I climbed up an old landslide and as I did I started finding more epidote and chrysocolla. It was very steep and dangerous terrain, but I collected some specimens and continued up.
