Zone -Mysterious Wave

The sim is an exhibition of surreal sculptures on an eerie set and accompanied with music.

The crow and other dark aspects of nature are featured,

leaving one with a feeling that the world has been left in a state of disrepair.

It evokes, at times, Alice in Wonderland, beautiful, yet disquieting.

Grand Canyon -a natural wonder

    A depiction of the real thing, the Grand Canyon is a sim that has lots of activities to offer, some of interest to daredevils. 

From zip lining to the bottom,

Hovercraft rides along the river (or various other types of boats), helicopter rides, cannon balling... to the dizzying skywalk.

Watch out for the rattlesnakes and other dangers.

Some areas are managed as romantic getaways.

Lynto Land -Crossworlds Gallery

This art gallery houses semi-permanent collections, and lots of it. Some pieces are rl paintings or photographs brought into sl, others are pieces produced specifically in virtual worlds. The artists are too numerous to be all named, but among those exhibiting pieces there are Orsini Tarantal

or this photograph from Fabilene Cortes...

This piece from Glyph Graves...

or this one from Pete Jiminy...

Noelani Lightfoot...

Do visit the ground level, and dont forget to go underwater as well. For example, this piece from Typote Beck is underwater,

and on the ground, ants from Lollito Larkham

There is lots to see here, I could not mention them all. I took lots of pictures but I am showing a small fraction only. Take your time, the place is worth taking in slowly!

ImagiLearning Lowlands -halls of learning

    ImagiLearning is part of a group of sims that is dedicated to learning of some sort, though I have not explored that. I have simply enjoyed the build there, the scenery and the quietness of it.

Stoney Isle -Nordan om Jorden... second visit

This art sim is exposing pieces by Betty Tureaud until February 22, 2011. As usual, her pieces are bright and vibrant. The exhibit is best seen by midnight. Some (if not most) of her pieces integrate movement, and still pictures don't do them justice. Hurry and enjoy, only 3 days left, counting today!
