A sandy river valley disappears through the dunes into the distance. Very soon even this landscape will have disappeared completely to be replaced with another.
Just because something in nature is beautiful does not necessarily mean it should be preserved. Beach landscapes show this on a daily timescale, continents show this on a geological timescale while stars and planets show this on a cosmological timescale.
All of the world around is just a transient landscape.
