GENEVA (AP) - The Grand Canyon, Mount Everest and Loch Ness will compete against more than 200 other spectacular places in the next phase of the global competition for the new 7 wonders of nature.
The nominees include some of the world's most famous mountain peaks, lakes and other attractions, such as the Great Barrier Reef and Niagara Falls.
A Swiss non-profit foundation is behind the campaign.
More than a billion people are expected to join in the Internet voting that will nominate 77 semifinalists.
It'll take a few more rounds of voting before the winners are named in 2011.
The seven man-made wonders have already been selected by Internet voters, but now you can help choose the top 7 natural wonders.
