Here’s something fun to kick off your weekend. It’s a travel-themed picture puzzle. You just have to tie the photos together to make words. For example, a photo of an eye, combined with a photo of a full glass of water would be eye + full = Eiffel. Get it? (For another example, check out last week’s puzzle.)

This week’s puzzle is two words and represents one of the world’s most impressive natural attractions.

Once you think you know the answer, post it below. You have until Monday, August 5, at 11:59 p.m. ET to post your response. We’ll keep all comments private until then.
