Land Use Planning to Support Economic Development
Watch the full course: https://courses.planetizen.com/course/planning-economic-development This course provides a general understanding of macro-level socio-economic trends, along with related business and industry trends, likely to influence economic development plans and associated land use policies over the next 20 years. By the end of this course, you will understand how land-use policies (e.g., comprehensive and master plans) can further or hinder economic development activity, why it's more important to focus on regional and national trends rather than local trends, and how land-use policies not grounded in local and regional market reality will, eventually, undermine the fiscal and economic climate of a locality.

EU LIFE+ „River landscape Enns“ - Documentation long version
The LIFE+ “River Landscape Enns” project area extends over two groups of implementation measures along the River Enns from Öblarn to Admont. The following 8 measures were implemented in the project: • Reconnection of two old meanders to the River Enns • Four widenings of the river bed • Revitalisation of the mouth sections of two tributary streams to make them accessible to aquatic species once again In addition, these measures made it possible to secure local stands of existing, valuable alluvial forests, create areas in which new alluvial forests can develop and to create riparian ponds. Along extended sections the bank reinforcements were removed in order to once again offer the River Enns the chance to develop dynamically. Infobox project data: Project area: Styria, district of Liezen Project budget: 2,863,102 € EU share: 50% Project duration: January 2011 – December 2015 The national share of funding is carried with 70% by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management along with 30% from interested parties (environmental ombudswoman, Verbund Hydro Power).

Gaviota Coast: SoCal's Celebrated Rural Shoreline
The Gaviota Coast features one of the most coveted shorelines in the state. It is Southern California's largest stretch of undeveloped coastline, containing approximately 50 percent of its remaining rural shores. Located in Santa Barbara County, this 76-mile swath of pristine beaches and idyllic landscapes passes through National Forest lands and five state and county parks. Recreational opportunities abound on the Gaviota Coast, which is why the California Coastal Trail plays such an integral role in the region's future. "The California Coastal Trail has been a complete success as a planning tool to increase coastal access," remarks environmental advocate and author John McKinney. With plans to expand the trail, it is hoped that the Gaviota Coast will become more accessible to the public, contributing to a greater experience of this tranquil strand.

Gold Prospecting Nelson Creek and Walk.
www.patreon.com/user?u=4325309 Nelson Creek has a number of short walks to choose from, including the wheelchair accessible Colls Dam Walk. To find the starting point for the walks, walk through an old hand picked tunnel and cross the Nelson Creek suspension bridge. Callaghans Track Time to the lookout: 30 min, one way Distance: 1.3 km, one way Time to Prices Creek Road: 45 min, one way Distance: 2 km, one way This easy to moderate track climbs steadily to a mossy knoll lookout point where you get a view into the bush clad valleys on either side of the ridge. On the way to the lookout point the track crosses a couple of deep tail races and a large water race as well as passing through regenerating beech. As the track climbs the forest is mostly podocarp/hardwood with rimu, miro, rata, quintinia and kamahi being the most common species. After the lookout point, the track levels out and eventually links with Prices Creek Road- a forestry road. Return by the same route. Tailrace Walk Time: 20 min return Distance: 900 m This short walk crosses a number of impressive tailraces. Old gold workings are also visible throughout the red and silver beech which are the dominant tree species. Colls Dam Walk This walk has wheelchair access Time: 40 min loop track Distance: 1.1 km This high quality walk must be started from Gows Creek carpark if you wish to get wheelchair access. The walk takes in some good examples of tailraces and tailings as well as providing a pleasant lookout point above the historic Colls Dam. Getting there From Greymouth follow SH7 about 25 km north to Ngahere. Turn right at the Ngahere-Kopara Road and carry on to the Nelson Creek Settlement. The turn off to access the picnic, camping area and walks is opposite Nelson Creek Hotel. Nature and conservation The forest in the Nelson Creek area, which is predominantly beech, is now regenerating. It was felled in the past to provide fuel and timber for huts, fluming and other mining structures, and was used in farming to a small degree. Red and silver beech can be seen on the lower slopes and hard beech on the higher slopes. Tailings The Nelson Creek area is formed from layers of sandstone overlaid by glacial outwash gravels. Gold was concentrated in trough-like hollows on the surface of the sandstone. Ground sluicing was the main method of working the gold. Sluicing needed a good supply of water which was directed over the working face, washing the gravels out. Large rocks were lifted aside and stacked as tailings, while the smaller material was washed down tailraces containing riffle boxes to 'save' the gold. Tailraces were also essential to remove excess water from the working area. History and culture Nelson Creek has had a varied goldmining history of success and decline from its beginnings in 1865, when it was rushed as a shallow creek working, which yielded shotty course gold. Some areas were rich in gold but finds were patchy. At the height of the rush over 1200 miners were scattered throughout Try Again Terrace downstream from Nelson Creek, but numbers fell almost immediately, once the productive ground was worked out. Nelson Creek suspension bridge The suspension bridge crossing Nelson Creek is a historic bridge. It was originally built in 1872 and has been rebuilt a couple of times, most recently by the New Zealand Forest Service in 1982 using the original plans. Know before you go You should wear comfortable footwear and take wet weather clothes as the West Coast is known for sudden changes in weather. Wasps will be present through out this area in summer. Take care off formed tracks as shafts and tunnels are scattered throughout the area.

PUBLIC LAND TRANSFER - Colorado Example of "state transfer" (Episode 6 of 15)
Stealing your public lands is an idea disguised under the concept of "State Transfer." No state has more restrictive access and recreation laws than the state of Colorado. This video shows how 23 million acres of currently accessible Federal lands would be off limits in Colorado under the foolish notion of "State Transfer." In effect, State Transfer in Colorado steals from you, the American Citizens, access you currently enjoy to the 23,000,000 acres of Federal lands you currently use for recreation in Colorado. ** Subscribe to Randy Newberg, Hunter https://goo.gl/4TZOiJ Download episodes: http://randynewberg.vhx.tv/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/randynewberg Forum: https://www.HuntTalk.com Website: http://www.RandyNewberg.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/randynewberg

Big Bend Ranch State Park - Overnight Visit August 2016
This is my visit to Big Bend Ranch State Park, near Presidio, Texas. Rain and clouds ruined my star gazing plans, but it provided afternoon temperatures in the low 70’s, a rarity during this off season visit. The footage includes clips from the drive to the South Leyva Campground, my campsite, a short hike on the Cinco Tinajas Trail, and the drive back out of the park. The music from my car stereo only lasts the first few of minutes at the beginning of the video; no artist infringement intended. The South Leyva Campground is 28 miles (about 1.5 hours) from Highway 170 and about a mile from the Sauceda Headquarters. This campground features 11 sites with tables and shade and a centrally located primitive toilet. There is no water or electricity. It is located next to the main, grated dirt and gravel road and is easily accessible to most 2WD vehicles. Unless you are 4WD enabled, this is the only road into and out of the park. Big Bend Ranch State Park is extremely isolated and the perfect place to go to get away from it all. Besides the rangers at the headquarters, I only saw one other car; leaving as I was arriving. If you are able to camp primitively, the park can provide the opportunity to escape the crowds that can be found at Big Bend National Park. I tried to capture the feel of the scenery and what it can be like to visit this park, but the footage pales to the actual experience of being there. I suspect the best adventures in this park require 4WD access, but do not let that deter you from a visit, if you only have a 2WD option. Official information about the park can be found here, http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/big-bend-ranch

waterfall in the forest.
waterfall in the forest. Get acquainted with the hypnotizing natural phenomenon of waterfalls in Arkansas graciously provided by Mother Nature herself. Some of the most incredible natural waterfalls in Arkansas can be found in the Ozark and Ouachita Mountain ranges, which cover approximately two-thirds of The Natural State. REMEMBER: Waterfalls are at their scenic best during rainy phases. They may not be quite as splashy during the summer months, so if you’re planning a photo shoot of a waterfall running full out, the wetter spring and winter months are best. A word of caution: some of these beautiful waterfalls are located in fairly remote areas of Arkansas. They require some travel on trails that may be difficult to reach–some physical stamina may be required. We've done our best to classify the falls as to their ease of accessibility. Read on to learn more about Arkansas’s most stunning waterfalls and add some of them to your next outdoor itinerary.Waterfall Glen’s 773-acre Bluff Savanna, which roughly covers the southern part of the preserve between Argonne National Laboratory and the Des Plaines River. Waterfall Glen is one of highest ranked conservation areas in the county,it contains 422 native plant species, including one state threatened and 36 of special concern. Individual black and white oaks, shagbark and bitternut hickories, and black walnuts range from 180- to 215-years-old. With Waterfall Glen having older trees and being wooded birds like pileated woodpeckers, scarlet tanagers, ovenbirds, wood thrushes, broad-winged hawks, and barred owls, are attracted to the area and some species breed there. Ephemeral ponds make the savanna an essential habitat for salamanders and frogs.

City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town
City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town. Bodie Ghost Town State Historic Park is a genuine California gold-mining ghost town. Visitors can walk down the deserted streets of a town that once had a population of nearly 10,000 people. The town is named for Waterman S. Body (William Bodey), who had discovered small amounts of gold in hills north of Mono Lake. In 1875, a mine cave-in revealed pay dirt, which led to purchase of the mine by the Standard Company in 1877. People flocked to Bodie and transformed it from a town of a few dozen to a boomtown. Only a small part of the town survives, preserved in a state of "arrested decay." Interiors remain as they were left and stocked with goods. Designated as a National Historic Site and a State Historic Park in 1962, the remains of Bodie are being preserved in a state of "arrested decay". Today this once thriving mining camp is visited by tourists, howling winds and an occasional ghost. Bodie is a ghost town. Today it looks much the same as it did over 50 years ago when the last residents left. To preserve the ghost town atmosphere, there are no commercial facilities at Bodie, such as food or gasoline. There is a bookstore inside the museum where you may also inquire about daily tours. Restrooms (flush toilets) are located at the parking lot and the picnic area. Souvenirs and Collecting Everything in Bodie is part of the historic scene and is fully protected. NOTHING may be collected or removed from the park. Metal detectors are not allowed. Closed Areas For public protection, certain unstable sections of the park are posted as prohibited areas, and are closed to entry by park visitors. Camping There is no camping at Bodie. Contact U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management offices for nearby camping information. Winter Visits Bodie is open all year. However, because of the high elevation (8375 feet), it is accessible only by skis, snowshoes or snowmobiles during winter months. Snowmobiles must stay on designated roads in the Bodie Hills. Winter weather is often unpredictable. Sub-zero temperatures, strong winds and white-out conditions are common. Many four wheel drive vehicles with chains get stuck each year in powdery snow. In Spring, mud can be a problem. Local towing services, when available, can be costly.

Klondike Alaska: A Rail History
For most people, railroads in Alaska and the Yukon are synonymous with the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass and Yukon Railroad whose passenger cars provide tourists with vistas of awe-inspiring terrain. That same terrain provided enormous challenges for early settlers of both territories. Railroads were an integral part of overcoming those challenges. Dozens of other railroads also laid track in Alaska, the Yukon, and northwest British Columbia and provided the means to transport supplies to settlements and to transport the region’s raw materials to outside markets. Klondike Alaska charts the history of many of those railroads. ©KUAC 2005 DVD's of this program are available for purchase at www.kuac.org.

Robin Hill ‘Nesting’ Treehouse Development Accommodation – Hotel and Leisure Isle of Wight
The plan is to have the first phase of the development operational in early 2018. British luxury treehouse builder Blue Forest, the same firm responsible for the Quiet Treehouse and Eco-PERCH, recently unveiled its plan to construct a low-impact vacation home development in the UK. Dubbed Nesting, the project features bird nest-shaped treehouses that include energy-efficient lighting, heating, and insulation. Nesting is due to be located in Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight, and in addition to 22 bird nest-shaped treehouses, will also feature 28 timber lodges and 40 glamping tents. Each is designed with a view to minimizing the impact on the existing landscape. "The scale of the proposed buildings enables them to fit within the existing landscape, subservient to the existing and proposed mature trees and bushes," Blue Forest CEO Simon Payne. "The height at which the tree houses are set has been adjusted to suit the adjacent tree canopy levels, in order that they do not break to upper tree line. Their curved form also assist them to blend in with their natural setting." The design of the treehouses is inspired by the nest of the Weaver bird. They will be prefabricated using sustainably-sourced timber and clad in Western Red Cedar Shingle, which will age over time as it comes into contact with the elements. The treehouses will be elevated on stilts or supported on small concrete pads situated outside of root protection zones. With a view to reducing energy use, the treehouses will sport walls between 150 - 300 mm (6 - 11.8-in) thick and feature ample insulation. Lighting will come in the form of energy-efficient LED lighting and an air-source heat pump will be installed to warm the interior. While the interior plans of the treehouses have not been finalized, Payne that there will be two basic types. The smaller will be a double bed unit, while a larger version will sleep four. Both will feature an open plan lounge area and small balcony, en-suite bathroom and small tea/coffee area. A planning application was recently submitted and, all being well, Blue Forest hopes to have the first phase of the development operational in early 2018. East London-based architecture firm Tate Harmer is also working on the project. Source: http://www.blueforest.com
Costa Rica Adventure Tour, a Journey To Poas Volcano National Park
Costa Rica Adventure, a Journey To Poas Volcano National Park. Poás Volcano is one of the major attractions in the Central Valley region and one of the most visited national parks in all of Costa Rica. Poas Volcano – The Crater Poás volcano is a powerful symbol of the geothermal forces that formed Costa Rica. When the mist and clouds part you’ll see the sulfuric, bubbling, green rain fed lake at the bottom, surrounded by smoke and steam rising from fumaroles. Water from the lake is constantly seeping through cracks in the hot rock, evaporating and building pockets of steam. When the pressure in these pockets exceeds the weight of the water above, the steam breaks through in geysers that rocket up to 820 feet (250 meters) high. Don’t worry about getting a shower though, the crater is 1,050 feet (320 meters) deep. At almost a mile (1.6 km) across it’s also the largest active crater in the world. modern visitors center (wheelchair accessible) and small museum explains and interprets the geothermal and ecological attractions in the park. A cafe serves coffee and hot drinks—as much to wrap your hands around to warm them as anything else—sandwiches, and snacks. Poás is active, but don’t expect to see a full fledged eruption or even any lava flow here, the most recent period of eruptive activity ended in 1954. The last major activity was in 1910 when nearly a million tons of ash was ejected along with an immense column of smoke and steam.The volcano provides an excellent if extreme example of the effects of acid rain. Around the caldera, and for several miles downwind, the vegetation is stunted brown and black by the tainted moisture that precipitates from the omnipresent clouds near the peak. Hiking and Walking Trails Trails that lead through cloud forest stunted and twisted, not only by volcanic emissions but the rigors of the cold windy high altitude habitat. Lake Botos fills an extinct crater at the end of one trail, and is home to many cloud forest birds including hummingbirds, tanagers, flycatchers, toucanets, Costa Rica’s national bird the clay-colored robin, and the area’s most famous avian resident, the resplendent quetzal. The paved, level, 0.3 mile (0.5 km) crater overlook trail starts at the visitors center and takes about 15 minutes each way. There is a viewing platform surrounded by a short wall. The Botos trail, 0.9 miles (1.4 km) branches off the overlook trail just before the viewing platform and climbs gently to the lake. The 0.6 miles (1km) Escalonia cloud forest trail is an excellent route to see all of the birds that live in the park, and two of the endemic species—Poás squirrels, and escalonia trees easily identified by their unique pagoda shape. Poás is above the frost line, and temperatures below freezing are possible. Nearly constant winds and saturating humidity contribute to biting cold at the rim. When to Visit or see summary Poás clouds over well before noon year round and in the rainy season it may not clear off at all. The best time to visit is always early in the morning but you can use the drop down menu to see what the weather is likely to be like in the month you’re planning to travel. Quick Facts Poás Volcano National Park Poas Volcano National Park Location Poas Volcano National Park Location Protecting 5,600 hectares with elevations range from 2400 to 2708 meters (7874 to 8885 feet) Poás is a small but important park. You can find cloud forest and tropical rainforest-upland habitats within the boundaries. The story of conservation at Poás began in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the 1960’s. Mario Boza was a student when he visited the park in the United States and was so impressed that he developed a plan to manage the area around Poás Volcano in a similar way, presented it as his masters thesis, and pursued its implementation. How the plan was adopted as an integral part of the birth and development of the National Park system in Costa Rica is described in David Rains Wallace’s book, The Quetzal and the Macaw.

Blue Zones: How to live longer and happier lives w/ Dan Burden – #252
Dan Burden and Samantha Thomas come on Bulletproof Radio today to discuss the Blue Zones project, a project that focuses on enabling cities to develop strong, healthy communities and how they have already upgraded longevity across the country. Dan Burden, the Director of Innovation and Inspiration for Blue Zones, LLC, has focused his entire career on helping the world get back on its feet. Dan created the walking audit; a highly interactive way to help people see their community through a sharper, more people focused lens. This popular annual NPSG walking audit workshop is designed to help participants fine-tune their most engaging public interaction skills. Dan illustrates the benefits of sometimes-simple and oft-difficult changes, and provides a roadmap for people to create neighborhoods, streets and cities that are more healthy and better connected. Samantha helps communities—neighborhoods, towns and cities—become healthier, better connected, more accessible and age-friendly. Samantha has worked in over 100 cities, facilitating walkability, active-living and safe routes to school workshops and developing community-led action plans for communities. She brings to this effort a diversity of experience in community engagement, the power of neighborhood leadership, and civic co-creation from living and working in South Africa for a year, to two years as AmeriCorps volunteer with Amherst H. Wilder Foundation and the City of Saint Paul Office of the Mayor.

Todd was selected as the Grand Marshal of the 2016 Bellingham St. Patrick's Day Parade. Each year, the Bellingham St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee carefully selects a Grand Marshal to lead the parade down the streets of Downtown. The representative chosen exemplifies superior qualities of leadership, a strong dedication to our community and an overall positive attitude. Anyone who comes within 10 feet of Todd Elsworth can’t help but find themselves drawn to his charismatic personality and contagious positivity. Arriving in Bellingham in 2001, Todd wasted no time getting involved with non-profits, environmental stewardship and community outreach. In the last 15 years, Todd has become a well-known advocate for the trails and waterways that he loves. As the Executive Director of Recreation NW, brings decades of extensive event production and marketing experience. He has served on start-up boards, managed his own consulting business and worked for local and global non-profits. He brings an entrepreneurial approach and is known for developing innovative ideas and bringing the right people together to make it happen. His managerial experience helps lead the board and their fundraising efforts, complemented by his sales background in sponsor relations and development.

Just last year, Todd worked with the FP Forest trail project to help make the “100 Acre Woods” more accessible and sustainable. For 2016, Todd says, “We have been working with our team of trail professionals and Parks and Recreation Department to determine the best route to get people across the wetlands and into the woods. We are planning on building a boardwalk to minimize the impact on the landscape and provide access for people into the forest. We anticipate volunteer work parties in May to make it all happen.” When asked about his favorite parade memory, Todd reminisced watching the parade with his daughter, Violet: “She was standing in the rain in her all green rain suit as we watched the parade roll by with Adam Lent dressed as Fat Bastard! She's looking forward to this experience as well.” Be sure to grab a front seat on March 12th, 2016 in downtown Bellingham and watch Todd and Violet Elsworth decked out in green as the lead the way- you won’t want to miss it!

Marwayne’s sustainable road and water system rebuild  2016 FCM Sustainable Communities Award winner
Learn about the Village of Marwayne, AB’s Center Street Revitalization: From the Bottom Up! project, for which it won a 2016 FCM Sustainable Communities Award in the Neighbourhood Development category. Read the case study: http://www.fcm.ca/x28708.xml With an innovative project to upgrade its Center Street infrastructure, Marwayne completed vital repairs to aging infrastructure and took a giant leap forward in terms of community renewal. Now Center Street is a draw for crowds and a boon for business. Faced with leaking water and sewer pipes beneath its Center Street, Marwayne had to dig up the street to replace the pipes. Guided by its Sustainability Plan (2008), Council Strategic Plan (2011) and other information, the village identified an opportunity to rebuild Center Street better than before. The village not only replaced its crumbling sewer and water mains and installed a new stormwater system, but also cleaned up a brownfield site, widened sidewalks, improved accessibility, and added planted boulevards, new street lighting and signage. The Center Street revitalization has greatly reduced waterline leaks, cleaned up contaminated soil and improved water quality and supply. It has reduced the village’s carbon footprint and created an appealing space for residents doing day-to-day business and attending public events. A grant program helps business owners upgrade their storefronts, and the revitalizing the street has also attracted new businesses that will increase tax revenue. Residents hope the project will improve property values for existing businesses and boost the village’s economic base. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Awards celebrate the best sustainability and environmental initiatives in municipalities of all sizes and regions across Canada. Established in 2000, the awards generate national and local recognition for sustainability projects that take an integrated approach, leading to environmental, economic and social benefits. The awards are open to all municipal governments and their private-sector partners and are presented in six categories: energy, transportation, waste, water, neighbourhood development and brownfields.

Rethinking the Value of Forests: From Timber to Water, Education and Health
The College of Natural Resources was honored to welcome Dr. Heather Tallis, Acting Chief Scientist at The Nature Conservancy, as the 2016 lecture speaker. As complex problems like climate change, water scarcity and inequality blur the lines of traditional sectors, we have the chance to change the way we think about and manage forests. Some cities are already embracing forests as part of their water infrastructure, making investments that diversify forest revenues and improve drinking water quality. Emerging research shows even more provocative possibilities for forests, suggesting they may increase test scores, improve health, or even prevent death. Dr. Heather Tallis explores how these new insights might change the way we value and manage forests.

Yosemite Vacation
Yosemite National Park Video Tour Yosemite National Park is a national park is in the U.S. state of California.The park covers an area of 747,956 acres and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.About 4 million people visit Yosemite each year. Yosemite isrecognized for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, lakes, mountains, glaciers.Almost 95% of the park is wilderness.John Muir led a successful movement to establish a larger national park encompassing not just the valley, but surrounding mountains and forests as well—paving the way for the United States national park system. Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada, the park supports a diversity of plants and animals. The park has an elevation range from 2,127 to 13,114 feet (648 to 3,997 m) and contains five major vegetation zones: woodland, lower montane forest, upper montane forest, subalpine zone, and alpine. In California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite. There is suitable habitat for more than 160 rare plants in the park. Almost all of the landforms in the Yosemite area are cut from the granitic rock of the Sierra Nevada Batholith. The Tunnel View is the first view of the Valley for many visitors and is extensively photographed. El Capitan, a granite cliff that looms over Yosemite Valley, is one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the world because of its diverse range of climbing routes in addition to its year-round accessibility. Granite domes such as Sentinel Dome and Half Dome rise 3,000 and 4,800 feet above the valley floor. The high country of Yosemite contains beautiful areas such as Tuolumne Meadows, Dana Meadows and more. The park has three groves of ancient giant sequoia trees; the Mariposa Grove (200 trees), the Tuolumne Grove (25 trees), and the Merced Grove (20 trees). This species grows larger in volume than any other and is one of the tallest and longest-lived.Yosemite is famous for its high concentration of waterfalls in a small area. Some of the most visited sites in Yesomite are El Capitan, Half Dome, Vernal falls, the tunnel view, Tuolumne Meadows, cathedral peak, Bridalveil fall,Glacier point, Mariposa Grove of giant sequoia.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Annapurna Base Camp Trek There are few treks that combine so many different landscapes and bring you so close to the base of 7,000 and 8,000 meter peaks in a such a short period of time as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region. The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the times. The setting of Annapurna Base Camp at 4130 m is unique and incredibly spectacular, set amidst the majestic peaks of Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m). The Annapurna Base Camp Trek takes 7 to 11 days, depending on your itinerary and length of walking days. The itinerary presented here takes 11 days, starting from Nayapul (a 1 1/2 hour drive from Pokhara) and going north up to Gorepani and the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill. From Gorepani you go eastward to Chomrong and then north again entering the Modi Kola Valley which leads up to the Base Camp. Many people trek the circuit Nayapul-Ghorepani-Ghandruk-Nayapul, which is very rewarding in itself. This trek can easily be done with children as well. You can return via Jhinu Danda and give your tired muscles a well deserved rest in the delightful hot springs. Upon your return it is worthwhile visiting one of the Gurung villages of Ghandruk or Landruk. The lodges in the Annapurna Trekking Region are well equipped with extensive menus ranging from the typical Nepali dahl bath (rice with lentils) to pizza and chau mein. Hot showers are readily available as well. If you are planning to trek in the winter months please check with a travel agency to confirm which lodges are open. The Annapurna trekking region is easily accessible with different trailheads starting just an hour or two away from Pokhara. Between Himalayan Hotel and Machapucchre Base Camp there is a risk of avalanches so make sure you have the latest information on trail conditions before setting off or hire a knowledgeable guide. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek can easily be done independently. It is possible to do this trek in all seasons, however, in the winter the Base Camp can sometimes be closed due to the snow level. In spring time the huge rhododendron forests are in full bloom which gives the trek an extra appeal. - See more at: http://greathimalayatrails.com/ght-trek/annapurna-base-camp-trek/#sthash.x3sGFZaB.dpuf

Vancouver Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia
https://www.expedia.com/Vancouver.d178315.Destination-Travel-Guides Vancouver’s breezes carry the scents of nature and aromas of all the urban delights you’d expect from a city regularly voted, “the Worlds most livable”. The city takes its name from the British navigator who landed here in 1792. The original settlement was called “Gastown”, in honor of Gassy Jack, who built the city’s first tavern. Gassy Jack and his makeshift pub may be long gone, but in the historic neighborhood of Gastown, his spirit lingers on. Vancouver’s early history continues at Waterfront Station, the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The railway’s construction brought Chinese workers by the thousands, whose descendants have enriched Vancouver ever since. Experience this interweaving of cultures in Chinatown, where the fusing of Oriental flavors with local seafood has helped earn the city the title, “the Culinary Capital of Canada.” After visiting Vancouver’s central highlights, ride the ferry to Granville Island. Stock up on provisions at the Granville Island Public Market and sample craft ales at Granville Island Brewing. From Granville Island, head to Queen Elizabeth Park on Little Mountain, a peaceful oasis high above the city. When it’s time to answer the call of the wild, cross the Lions Gate Bridge to The North Shore, a wilderness where bears roam and salmon-filled rivers flow through old-growth forests. Less than a two-hour drive from the city is Whistler Blackcomb Resort, the largest ski resort in North America. The beautifully connected runs here cater to all skill levels and attract elite skiers and beginners from all over the globe.
