We’re celebrating Dr. Seuss Day with a glimpse of Vinicunca, a colorful mountain in the Andes range of Peru. Varied layers of mineral deposits, weathered and oxidized over the years, provide the bright, contrasting striations, inspiring an alternate name for this spot: Rainbow Mountain. We think it looks like the wild environments dreamed up by famed children’s author Dr. Seuss. In particular, it reminds us of his book, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’: ‘You're off to Great Places! Today is your Day! Your mountain is waiting. So...Get on your way!’ Do you have a favorite Seuss book?
