Earth Day is celebrated each year on April 22. This worldwide event, which began in 1970, supports environmental protection and activism.

At EagleView®, we capture breathtaking Pictometry® aerial imagery of our planet year-round. The following images show everything from snowy mountains in Utah to tropical volcanoes in Hawaii and illustrate the diversity of the planet we care so much about.

Frozen Pines Utah County UT Snowy Woods (near Provo)]

Winter may be over, but these mountains in Utah, near Provo, look like an ideal spot for a ski trip.

Los Angeles County CA Mountains (outside of LA)

Speaking of mountains – does anyone want to go rock climbing in California?

Lake Michigan – Cook County, IL (Chicago)

We spotted this stunning blue view on Lake Michigan, just outside of Chicago.

Mohave County AZ Canyon

In Arizona, this canyon caught our eye.

Union County PA Horizon Shot

You can see for miles in Pennsylvania. We got this majestic view when one of our 115 planes changed direction in Union County.

Craters in Maui, HI

The Haleakalā Crater on the Hawaiian island of Maui is a popular tourist destination. The volcano has erupted three times in the past 900 years. In Hawaiian folklore, the crater was home to demigod Māui’s grandmother.

Craters in Maui, HI

We wouldn’t mind exploring the forests, mountains, and caves in Lewis and Clark County, Montana.

Niagara Falls NY/Canada

The Niagara Falls join the United States and Canada. On the left are the American and Bridal Veil Falls; on the top right are the Horseshoe Falls. All three waterfalls span roughly 3,600 feet and have the highest volume of water pass through them out of all the world’s waterfalls. The Maid of the Mist, a boat that takes passengers on tours of the falls, is also visible in this photo.

Charleston, SC Rivers

These rivers in Charleston, South Carolina, look ideal for a tour, too.

Alameda County, CA (Oakland) – windmills - go green for Earth Day!

These windmills outside of Oakland, California, should inspire everyone to go green.

Our planet sure is beautiful – wouldn’t you agree?

From all of us at EagleView, have a Happy Earth Day!
