Camping 🏕️ Gifford Pinchot National Forest ft. @john_e._ringo
Because of extreme weather conditions in the South/Midwest I opted out of Train Hopping and hitched (in three rides) here to Portland, OR. Met up with @john_e._ringo and spent a weekend up camping 🏕️ in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Plans are to ride the High Line with John, once he gets his week vacation from his seasonal job, to as far as Havre, MT. and back. Northern hemisphere is where most of us 'bos choose to ride and tramp during summer months chasing dreams and seasonal work. Because of my intense respect and reverence for the hobo culture and the real need for assistance in creating faster videos I've decided to start listing my #trainhopping videos as 'unlisted' and accessible for those who enjoy watching train hopping videos and could assist, in making these videos faster, with a donation to the PayPal link 🔗 below. These funds will enable me to continue traveling without the hassle of stopping finding work, and doing all the other necessary means that hinders me from continuing my travels thus hindering video production. Thanks for your understanding and support!

Coordinated Motion Planning: The Video
We motivate, visualize and demonstrate recent work for minimizing the total execution time of a coordinated, parallel motion plan for a swarm of N robots in the absence of obstacles. Under relatively mild assumptions on the separability of robots, the algorithm achieves constant stretch: If all robots want to move at most d units from their respective starting positions, then the total duration of the overall schedule (and hence the distance traveled by each robot) is O(d) steps; this implies constant-factor approximation for the optimization problem. Also mentioned is an NP-hardness result for finding an optimal schedule, even in the case in which robot positions are restricted to a regular grid. On the other hand, we show that for densely packed disks that cannot be well separated, a stretch factor Ω(N1/4) is required in the worst case; we establish an achievable stretch factor of O(N1/2) even in this case. We also sketch geometric difficulties of computing optimal trajectories, even for just two unit disks. Aaron T. Becker Sándor P.

iDigBio: Using Digital Specimen Data in Biodiversity Conservation Planning and Implementation
Gil Nelson, iDigBio, Florida State University Molly Phillips, iDigBio, University of Florida The first two decades of the 21st Century have seen an exponential increase in the generation and mobilization of digital, specimen-based biodiversity data and turned natural history museums and biodiversity collections in academic institutions into major resources of conservation data. Led in the U.S. largely by the National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) initiative, more than 700 U.S. institutions in 50 states and two territories are digitizing their biodiversity collections and serving these data through iDigBio (Integrated Digitized Biocollections), the national coordinating center for digitization and data mobilization in the U.S. The iDigBio portal (https://www.idigbio.org/portal) now serves more than 110 million records representing 300-400 million specimens, and just over 24 million media records, the majority of which are 2D images. These resources expose previously difficult-to-access collections to wider audiences of conservation practitioners and provide access to the best biodiversity data in the modern era outside of nature itself. This webinar will focus on the brief history of data mobilization in the U.S., the data that are now available and accessible to conservation planners, and how these data can be employed in the implementation of conservation strategies. An overview of the iDigBio data portal will be included.
How one adventure company is fast-forwarding the route to success
Some of Britain’s rural regions are facing serious problems, with young people leaving, wages being pushed down and businesses closing. So what responsibility does a company have to the community in which it’s based? For Sean Taylor, co-founder of adventure company Zip World, his business is squarely focused on being part of the solution, not a part of the problem. Zip World is a thriving business; initially operating from a disused quarry site in north Wales from 2013, it’s already grown its staff from eight to more than 300 and added another two sites. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/great-british-business/zip-world-wales/
Huemul Trek, El Chalten, Patagonia (2018)
The Huemul Circuit topped all treks we have done before.This trek blew our minds, even comparing it to the W Trek in Punta Arenas and the most beautiful treks in New Zealand (video here). Normally a four day trek, unless like it did for us, the weather makes you change plans and you do it in three days. El Chalten, the starting point is a town in the Argentinian part of Patagonia and is infamous for its challenging weather conditions. The surrounding mountains are majestic and scary attracting mountaineers, climbers and hikers every season. One of the highlights of the area, the massive South Patagonian Ice Field is only accessible on the Huemul Trek.

The Drina River House You’ve always wanted a house surrounded by a moat, right? Everyone has!! But how about taking it a step further and building your home in the middle of a river? Well, that’s what a group of boys decided to do in 1968 when they were looking for the ideal spot to sunbathe. 9. Casa Do Penedo The Casa Do Penedo, which means the house of stone, is in the Fafe mountains of northern Portugal. The 16.5-foot-tall house, built at 2,600 feet above sea level, is often referred to as the ‘Flintstones House’, and it’s clear to see why. 8. The Crystal Mill The Crystal Mill is one of the most famous, and isolated, homes in Colorado. It was built on a rocky outcrop in the Crystal river, and is surrounded by the most amazing views! It’s about 6 miles away from Marble, and is close to the former town of Crystal. 7. Katskhi Pillar How far would you go for your beliefs? Religious devotion can lead people to make big sacrifices for their faith, but one monk has taken the idea of isolation to a whole new level. Maxime Qavtaradze has spent the past 20 years living in a cottage on the Katskhi Pillar- a 131-foot-tall rock that stands above his monastery in Georgia. 6. Wordie House If you like the cold, and staying indoors for most of the year, then maybe this is the place for you. Wordie House is one of the most remote buildings on the planet- located on Winter Island in Antarctica. 5. Long Studio The Long Studio, on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, Canada, was built to give artists a secluded space to work. The modern structure has been built on a series of stilts to raise it above the ground- which makes it feel as if it’s hovering over the landscape. 4. The Solvay Hut Located on the north eastern ridge of the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland, the Solvay Hut is the highest mountain hut owned by the Swiss Alpine Club, at 13,133 feet above sea level. 3. Ellidaey Island If you really want an isolated home, and an entire island to go with it- then how about Ellidaey island in Iceland? It’s a part of the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago to the south of the country, and there’s quite a mystery to the place. 2. San Colombano Hermitage First built in 1319, the San Colombano hermitage was named after the Irish Saint Colomban who, according to legend, took up residence in the cave after vanquishing the dragon that originally lived there. A small church was then built at the entrance to one of the small caves to provide accommodation for pilgrims and monks. 1. Just Room Enough Island Just room enough island is, as the name would suggest, a small piece of land that is just room enough for a house, and barely anything else! It’s one of the almost 2,000 islands of the Thousand Islands chain on the New York side of the St Lawrence River, and is the location of one of the most famous isolated homes in the region.

Environment Impact Assessment Part III
Support us : https://www.instamojo.com/@exambin/ Download our app : http://examb.in/app EIA Part 1 : https://youtu.be/nrv1zBMAEL8 EIA Part 2 : https://youtu.be/Q_sYi3-eBJg Welcome back to the 4rd lesson on environment which deals with the environmental impact assessment india part 3, in this lesson you are going to see about shortcomings environmental impact assessment which should be helpful for your environmental impact assessment india upsc topic. 1. Shortcomings of Environmental Impact Assessment 1.1 Applicability: There are several projects with significant environmental impacts that are exempted from the notification either because they are not listed in schedule I, or their investments are less than what is provided for in the notification. 1.2 Composition of expert committees and standards: • It is being found that the team formed for conducting EIA studies is lacking the expertise in various fields such as environmentalists, wild life experts, indian geography Anthropologists and Social Scientists (to study the social impact of the project). 1.3 Public hearing: • Public comments are not taken into account at the early stage, which often leads to conflict at the later stage of project clearance. • A number of projects with significant environmental and social impacts have been excluded from the mandatory public hearing process. 2. Quality of EIA One of the biggest concerns with the environmental clearance process is related to the quality of EIA report that are being carried out. • The reports are generally incomplete and provided with false data. • The EIA document in eia commitee itself is so bulky and technical, which makes it very difficult to decipher so as to aid in the decision making process. 2.1 Lack of Credibility • The EIA is actually funded by an agency or individual whose primary interest is to procure clearance for the project proposed • There are so many cases of fraudulent EIA studies where inaccurate data has been used, same facts used for two totally different places etc. 2.2 Monitoring, compliance and institutional arrangements • The EMPs are kept confidential for political and administrative reasons. • Emergency preparedness plans are not discussed in sufficient details and the information is not broadcasted to the communities.a 3. Recommendations to improve EIA process • EIA’s scope should be widened as and when it is necessary in order to examine unbiased. strategic eia • Dissemination of all information related to projects from notification to clearance to local communities and general public. 3.1 Implementation and public hearing • All those projects where there is likely to be a significant alternation of ecosystems need to go through the process of environmental clearance, without exception. • Public hearings should be applicable to all previously exempted categories of projects which have environmental impacts. 3.2 Improving the Quality of EIA process: • The focus of EIA needs to shift from utilization and exploitation of natural resources to conservation of natural resources. • All EIA reports should clearly state the adverse impacts of a proposed projects. This should be a separate chapter and not hidden within technical details. • The sub components or subsidiary reports of EIA reports should be made publicly accessible as standalone reports with the EIA. • EIAs should be based on full studies carried out over at least one year. Single season data on environmental parameters like biodiversity, participants of eia, is not adequate to gain understanding of the full impact of the proposed project. • A national level accreditation to environment consultancy should be adopted 3.3 Grant of clearance: • The notification needs to make it clear that the provision for site clearance does not imply any commitment on the part of the impact Assessment agency to grant full environmental clearance. • The consent should be from the full general body. 3.4 Composition of expert committees: • The present executive committees should be replaced by expert’s people from various stakeholder groups, who are reputed in environmental and other relevant fields. 3.5 Monitoring, compliance and institutional arrangements • The EIA notification needs to have an inbuilt mechanism where the clearance is automatically withdrawn if the conditions of clearance are being violated, and introduce more stringent punishment for violating • The Ministry of Environment and Forest should set up more regional offices with advisory Expert committees, each with smaller areas of jurisdiction, to effectively monitor the compliance of clearance conditions. 3.6 Re-addressing : Citizen should be able to access the authority for re-addressing of all violation of the EIA notification as well as issues relating to non-compliance. 3.7 Capacity building: NGOs, civil society groups and local communities need to build their capacities to use the EIA notification towards better decision making on projects.

Kibale National Park, Uganda | Crater Safari Lodge
Kibale National Park in Southern Uganda is the premier destination for Chimpanzee Tracking in Uganda, but the area surrounding the park offers so much more! Kibale is located near a beautiful Crater Lake region with many of the lakes and incredible viewpoints accessible by car or via a short hike. We stayed at the Crater Safari Lodge and were spoilt with amazing views of the lake from our window. While in the region, we also visited an eco-tourism project at the Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary, located just outside of the Kibale National Park. This little-known community set around a small wetland is home to 8 different species of monkeys and tons of beautiful birds and insects. The project offers guided walks around the walks to tourists and all profits from the walks go back into the community and towards conservation efforts in the wetland. Like our stuff?

Back on Route 66 - Bottle Tree Ranch - Eaton Canyon Falls - LeAw in the USA //Ep.48
We are living the American dream driving the Historic Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica but we are doing some detours to visit some places we like. In this 48th episode, we get back on Route 66 and visit Elmer Long's Bottle Tree Ran and stop for a hike to see Eaton Canyon Falls. Enjoy the ride with us! ;) Elmer Long's Bottle Tree Ranch - Oro Grande, California. A forest of 200 bottle trees along Route 66. What does one do when left with thousands of colored glass bottles? Begin a massive recycling effort, or perhaps an obscure outdoor art gallery? Elmer Long decided on both after becoming the sole beneficiary of a massive bottle collection. As a child, Long scoured the desert with his father, collecting everything and anything. While a younger Long took notes, his father amassed an incredible collection of glass bottles. When he passed away, Long inherited his work, as well as a loss at what to do with the strange collection. In 2000, an idea struck the famously bearded Elmer Long, and he created his first bottle tree. Shaped like hat racks, with glass bottles of all colors and shapes angled off of them, the bottle tree ranch has now grown to 200 installations. Besides being a beautiful gallery, the hollow bottles also whirr a sweet tune when the wind passes through them. For travelers making their way across America, this collection and its curator are two treasures without equal. Eaton Canyon is a major canyon beginning at the Eaton Saddle near Mount Markham and San Gabriel Peak in the San Gabriel Mountains in the Angeles National Forest, United States. Its drainage flows into the Rio Hondo river and then into the Los Angeles River. It is named after Judge Benjamin S. Eaton, who lived in the Fair Oaks Ranch House in 1865 not far from Eaton Creek. The most well-known portion of the canyon is the Eaton Canyon Nature Center in Pasadena, California. The trailhead of the Mount Wilson Toll Road is in the canyon. The Eaton Canyon Natural Area Park is located where the mountain stream debouches into the foothill wash at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. The park is administered by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation. The county administers the lower two-thirds of the area below the toll road bridge. Most of the 190 acres (0.8 km2) that comprises the natural area lie on the northern boundaries of the old Rancho San Pascual and Rancho Santa Anita on land designated for the Southern Pacific Railroad. Once the railroad gave up the land, it was opened for homesteading. The nature center is unique in the area because it houses exhibits that educate on the flora and fauna local to the San Gabriel Valley Southern California. The center was rebuilt in 1998 after the 1993 fire destroyed the previous facility. Pasadena and parts of Altadena receive about 40% of their water from local sources. The upper third is controlled by the Water Department of the City of Pasadena. Eaton Canyon Falls The falls are where the Eaton Creek has a fifty-foot drop and are located north of the bridge in the part of the canyon administered by the US Forest Service. John Muir once described the waterfall as "a charming little thing, with a low, sweet voice, singing like a bird, as it pours from a notch in a short ledge, some thirty or forty feet into a round mirror-pool." Several waterfalls also exist above Eaton Fall, which are more secluded. Until 1979, there was a tunnel which allowed access, but this has been dynamited and filled in. While the upper falls were accessible decades ago, there are no longer any maintained trails. People have been injured and killed trying to make these climbs. On July 31, 2011, a man fell to his death on the hike to the falls. Another man fell to his death one week later on August 6, 2011. On March 22, 2013, two hikers tried to climb to the second waterfall, but decided against it mid-climb. As they made their way down, they both lost their footing and fell. One hiker, a high school senior, fell to her death, and the other was airlifted for treatment. On June 27, 2014, the US Forest Service announced plans to close the trail to the upper falls. The trail to the upper falls was closed off on August 1, 2014. Violators caught trespassing the off-limits area will face a fine of up to $5,000 or six months in jail.

Follow our adventures as we arrive in the Pyrenees in search of hidden hot springs. First we venture to the most popular springs in the Catalan Pyrenees accessible only by a valley hike across a stream. Then, having not had our fill, we attempt to hike to a second thermal pool only to get lost somewhere in the mountains. Finally, just in case you hadn't had enough of snow in our previous vlogs (because we sure haven't yet), there's a dusting of that too, as well as a short trip into Andorra before we finally make it to warmer climates in Catalonia in search of a mechanic.

This is What Makes Apache County, Arizona Surprisingly Wonderful
This is What Makes Apache County, Arizona Surprisingly Wonderful! Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/compasslandusa Read the post on our blog: https://www.compasslandusa.com/blog Apache County is located in the northeast corner of the state of Arizona. Founded in 1879, Apache was formed from one of the 4 original counties in Arizona. It was originally inhabited by Navajo and Apache tribes, Texas cattlemen, and New Mexico sheepherders. Now the 27,733 square miles of Apache land is home to over 70,000 people, and still contains much untamed land and wildlife. Northern Arizona is known for its great weather and natural beauty. At an elevation of 6,500ft, expect low humidity, and over 270 days of sun. summer temperatures average around, 80°F, with dry desert heat. Winter here is colder than the rest of Arizona, with a January average temperature of 15°F, and 39 inches of snowfall! The weather means great living conditions for people with arthritis and joint issues, or with allergies to pollen and plants found in other parts of the country. It’s also a sweet escape for snowbirds! Aside from fantastic weather, Apache County offers a diverse landscape. High desert flat lands, mountainous terrain, and some of the most enviable views in the state. And Northeastern Arizona has some of the best stargazing in the USA, where a view of the Milky Way will take your breath away. If you’re looking to move to Arizona, Apache County may be the perfect place for you. The cost of living here is 11% less than the U.S. average, and job growth is positive. What keeps people here is the community. Officials take the sense and growth of community seriously, and make it a top priority. Apache displays open-mindedness that transcends to property ownership. The county allows a multitude of activities and dwellings on your property. The options are quite flexible compared to other counties in the state and country. When considering property uses, it’s always advisable to contact the Planning and Zoning commission department, to check less obvious rules like size restrictions per acre, and potential hazards. It’s also important to check the property zoning - you can learn more about this in our free eBook. Any development or construction site in Apache County must have the following: 1. Building Permit 2. Zoning Certificate 3. Plan and Building Specifications Legal hunting is allowed on all public State Trust lands and BLM lands, however, access to these lands is not always guaranteed. Permits and a legal hunting license are required for big game on public lands. A popular local hunting and fishing destination is White Mountain. Where you can fish for Apache trout, brown cutthroat, rainbow trout, bass, and crappie. And hunt for elk, deer, antelope, javelin, bear, turkey, sheep, mountain lion, and water fowl! Fishing is a year-round opportunity. Hunting seasons are scheduled by the Arizona Game & Fish Department. Did you know that the Apache has the highest number of farms in the state of Arizona? An astounding 5,591 farms! Arizona contains some of the richest valleys in all of the USA. Aside from hunting, fishing, and farming, some of the more common activities are: hiking, mountain biking, ATV/UTV riding, golfing, horseback riding, skiing, and community events. A nearby natural phenomenon includes Petrified Forest National Park. In it’s south, Rainbow Forest is full of colourful petrified wood. In the park, you can backpack your way into Red Basin and Martha’s Butte - areas only just recently opened to the public! Devil’s Playground is another popular backcountry hike, not for the faint of heart! Monument Valley is a popular red-sand desert region on the Arizona-Utah border, in the north of Apache County. It may be the most enduring image of the American West. Get out and enjoy the Valley Drive, a 17-mile dirt road running amidst the cliffs and mesas. And be sure to explore the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. One of the biggest attractions of this area is Big Lake. Camp at Big Lake Recreation Area to get away from busy and enjoy some simple living. Other popular areas include Blue Range Primitive Area, Escudilla Wilderness, Bear Wallow Wilderness, and Fool Hollow Lake recreation and campground. Apache County has a rich history, with roots stretching back to the days of the wild west. Apache is perfect for those looking to relocate to Arizona, plan an unforgettable vacation, or who want to explore outside city life and take on exciting nature adventures.

Visit Quebec Road Trip | Eastern Townships Travel Guide
Join us as we visit Quebec for a road trip around the Eastern Townships in this travel guide as we highlight outdoor activities in and around Mont Megantic, hiking in Mont Ham and a whole lot more. What we love the most about visiting Quebec this time of year are the beautiful autumn colours in the rural areas of the Eastern Townships where you notice the yellows, reds and oranges of the leaves. If you're thinking about visiting the Eastern Townships we also highly encourage you to try local dishes such as poutine, duck and maple pie. The food in Quebec is legendary. Anyhow, the following is what we got up to traveling in the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Canada: Our adventures in the Eastern Townships of Quebec (cantons de l'est) 1) Cabin Tour of our place in Mont Megantic (Parc national du Mont-Mégantic) 2) Hiking in Mont Megantic National Park 3) AstroLab and Observatory in Mont Megantic 4) Dinner at Aux Toits Rouges featuring duck and maple pie 5) Hiking to the summit of Mont Ham 6) Visiting Abbaye St-Benoit-du-Lac 7) Hiking aroundMarais de la Rivière aux Cerises GEAR WE USE Panasonic GH5: http://amzn.to/2yqTUyi Canon G7X ii: http://amzn.to/2yqtM6B Rode Video Micro: http://amzn.to/2wTguTM Joby Gorilla Pod: http://amzn.to/1PgoY5F SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro: http://amzn.to/25KEErs SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS AUDREY: blog: http://thatbackpacker.com/ instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thatbackpacker/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thatbackpacker twitter: https://twitter.com/ThatBackpacker SAMUEL: blog: http://nomadicsamuel.com/ facebook: https://www.facebook.com/nomadicsamuel twitter: https://twitter.com/NomadicSamuel instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nomadicsamuel/ Visit Quebec Road Trip | Eastern Townships Travel Guide Video Transcript: In our last video, Sam and I spent two days enjoying some outdoor adventures in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, and this video is a continuation of that road trip. After two days in Sutton, we drove to Mont-Mégantic National Park, which was 2 hours away, though in reality it took us longer because we couldn’t resist stopping for some poutine along the way. This trip was all about enjoying nature and the outdoors, and we once again teamed up with Tourisme Quebec and Merrell Canada. We stayed in a futuristic cabin in the woods, tackled a few hikes, learned about the universe at AstroLab, and stopped at more than one road side attraction along the way. Now here’s a recap of that trip! One thing to keep in mind when it comes to hiking in this park, is that it’s divided into two sectors: the Franceville Sector and the Observatoire Sector. The Franceville sector is located in the northwest end of the park, which is where our cabins were so this is where we went hiking. During our stay in Mont-Mégantic National Park, we also visited the ASTROLab, which is an astronomy research centre focused on making science accessible to the public. Our main reason for coming all the way out here was to do some stargazing! Mont-Mégantic is located in the heart of the first International Dark Sky Reserve and that means it’s an astronomy lover’s paradise. Because there’s hardly any light pollution in the area, it’s the perfect place to see and study the stars, however, fog and rain did put a bit of a damper on our plans. We did drive up to Mont Mégantic to see the observatory and Mont Saint-Joseph to see the chapel, but there weren’t too many views to be had on that day. Because star-gazing wasn’t possible that night, we went out for a nice leisurely dinner at Aux Toits Rouges. This is a country lodge with its own in-house restaurant and we got a little adventurous with our dishes. The summit of Mont Ham sits at 713 metres above sea level, but it only has a prominence of 358 metres, so it’s a fairly lighthike. On our road trip through the Eastern Townships, we also took two little detours. The first was to visit Abbaye St-Benoit-du-Lac), which is an abbey known for its multicoloured bricks and tiled floors. The 2nd was the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises, which is an area with boardwalks and walking trails through marshland. And that pretty much brings us to the end of our whirlwind trip through Quebec’s Eastern Townships! We hope you guys enjoyed following along and we’ll see you in the next video. This is part of our Travel in Canada video series showcasing Canadian food, Canadian culture and Canadian cuisine. Music by Artlist: https://artlist.io/Audrey-184699
The Unavoidable Water Crisis, Was it Engineered?  [Part 1/2] 2018
Water is life. Water is power. Water has become the new oil. Sadly, it’s becoming an increasingly scarce resource across the globe through overuse and pollution? But who really controls the water we drink? A deep dive into the planet’s water situation reveals that in the coming decades, every country, including the United States, will have to determine how to treat water as an economic good, a human right, and a depleting resource. As these issues become more acute, tensions have already begun to escalate but who is really behind this?

Yosemite National Park: "Let's See Yosemite" 1933 Guy D. Haselton Travelettes
Parks, Forests, Refuges, Monuments playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC549114ED2156427 more at http://news.quickfound.net/cities/sacramento.html Views of Yosemite Valley and the Yosemite National Park. Silent. Truncated at four minutes. Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yosemite_National_Park Yosemite National Park (/joʊˈsɛmɨtiː/ yoh-SEM-it-ee) is a United States National Park spanning eastern portions of Tuolumne, Mariposa and Madera counties in the central eastern portion of the U.S. state of California. The park, which is managed by the National Park Service, covers an area of 747,956 acres (3,026.87 km2) and reaches across the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain. Over 3.7 million people visit Yosemite each year: most spend their time in the seven square miles (18 km2) of Yosemite Valley. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness. Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea. First, Galen Clark and others lobbied to protect Yosemite Valley from development, ultimately leading to President Abraham Lincoln's signing the Yosemite Grant in 1864. Later, 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, and 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: chaparral/oak woodland, lower montane forest, upper montane forest, subalpine zone, and alpine. Of California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite. There is suitable habitat or documentation for more than 160 rare plants in the park, with rare local geologic formations and unique soils characterizing the restricted ranges many of these plants occupy. The geology of the Yosemite area is characterized by granitic rocks and remnants of older rock. About 10 million years ago, the Sierra Nevada was uplifted and then tilted to form its relatively gentle western slopes and the more dramatic eastern slopes. The uplift increased the steepness of stream and river beds, resulting in formation of deep, narrow canyons. About 1 million years ago, snow and ice accumulated, forming glaciers at the higher alpine meadows that moved down the river valleys. Ice thickness in Yosemite Valley may have reached 4,000 feet (1,200 m) during the early glacial episode. The downslope movement of the ice masses cut and sculpted the U-shaped valley that attracts so many visitors to its scenic vistas today... Yosemite Valley represents only one percent of the park area, but this is where most visitors arrive and stay. The Tunnel View is the first view of the Valley for many visitors and is extensively photographed. El Capitan, a prominent 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 (910 and 1,460 m), respectively, above the valley floor. The high country of Yosemite contains beautiful areas such as Tuolumne Meadows, Dana Meadows, the Clark Range, the Cathedral Range, and the Kuna Crest. The Sierra crest and the Pacific Crest Trail run through Yosemite, with peaks of red metamorphic rock, such as Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs, and granite peaks, such as Mount Conness. Mount Lyell is the highest point in the park, standing at 13,120 ft. The Lyell Glacier is the largest glacier in Yosemite National Park and is one of the few remaining in the Sierra Nevada today. The park has three groves of ancient Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) trees; the Mariposa Grove (200 trees), the Tuolumne Grove (25 trees), and the Merced Grove (20 trees).[47] This species grows larger in volume than any other and is one of the tallest and longest-lived...

Parc national d'Aiguebelle - Winter Rustic Shelter
Located 50 km north-east of Rouyn-Noranda Quebec, Parc national d'Aiguebelle is a true natural jewel tucked away in the magnificent and primeval boreal forest. The park contains a treasure trove of impressive geological and geomorphological phenomena including eskers, volcanic cushions, massive boulders and giant’s cauldrons. Two majestic rift lakes, Sault and La Haie are located on either side of the watershed divide between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. The park offers 9 rustic shelters and 4 larger cabins for four season backcountry accommodations. Nestled in the folds of a magnificent setting, the rustic shelters are havens of peace. Depending on the season and location, the rustic shelters are accessible by car, canoe, on foot, skis or snowshoes. The park staff will even transport your gear to the shelter for a small fee! We decided on La Guêpe, a quaint log cabin built in the late 70’s with just enough room for 2 people. Situated on the shores of picturesque Lac La Haie and flanked by towering cliffs, it was an easy 5.7km snowshoe trek in from where we parked our truck. We would use the shelter as a basecamp for two nights, but one could trek from shelter to shelter through the network of groomed winter trails. Plans for the following day called for a lengthy 20k trek to La Trompeuse, one of the highest peaks in Abitibi and nearby fijord-like lakes.

Nairobi National Park, game drive in the heart of Nairobi
Nairobi National Park is the world's only game reserve within a major city. Watch the game drive in the heart of Nairobi. 😃 SUBSCRIBE FOR WEEKLY KENYA SAFARI VIDEOS ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCekz7503toR4eJAPxEZEpnw?sub_confirmation=1 #NairobiNationalPark The Nairobi National Park is the perfect game park drive especially for those who are on a tight schedule. The park is easy accessible from the main hotels between the main airport (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport) and Nairobi. You don’t need a lot of time to enjoy the wildlife in the city of Nairobi. Half day trip provides enough time to see a large variety of wildlife including the big five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros elephant, and Cape buffalo) in the heart of Nairobi in Kenya. Some exotic birds can also be found at the Nairobi National Park. Seeing some of the big five is uncertain, especially elephants and leopards, though a pride of lions, rhinos, giraffes, jackals, buffalos, Impalas and lots of zebra will be easily spotted here. Nairobi National Park was established in 1946, and the first national park established in Kenya. It is situated approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya's capital city. It also has an electric fence separating the park's wildlife from the metropolis and its unique sight of Nairobi’s skyscrapers. Nairobi National Park does not have any accommodation or lodges in the park, but there are adequately of accommodation within Nairobi and close to the airport which is less than 10 KM away from the park. The best season for visitors to Nairobi National Park is between July through March when the weather is mainly dry and sunny. The rainy season starts from April through June. During this time, transport is difficult and it is nearly difficult to view the animals on safari. There may also be some rain from October through December. Nairobi National Park entrance fees Nairobi National Park entrance fees as of 1st November 2016 are $60 (Ksh 6,000) for adult non-residents and Sh860 for adult Kenyan citizens effective, as per Kenya Wildlife Service. This follows a decision by the government for the removal of Value Added Tax on all entry fees to attractions. VAT was previously factored into all entry fees and other services offered at parks and reserves managed by the wildlife agency including the Nairobi National Park entrance fees. The park’s wetland areas sustain approximately 400 bird species, which is more than in the whole of the UK. A full day’s visit at the Nairobi Nation can offer a viewing of more than 100 species of birds. Nairobi National Park has amazingly a wide range of habitats which include open rolling grass plains, thicket and bush, rocky gorges and forest. It is home to a whopping 520 bird species one of the largest bird list of any city in the world. Bird species include African crested cranes, African fish eagle, kori bustard, secretary bird, marabou stork, Rüppell’s vulture, martial eagle, great white pelican, Egyptian goose, hadada ibis, sacred ibis, malachite kingfisher, wagtail, yellow billed stork, go away bird, hamerkop, Madagascar bee-eater, plovers, African jacana and many more. Besides the main entrance, which lies 7km from the city centre, the Nairobi National Park has other gates on Magadi Rd and the Athi River gate. The Athi River gate is convenient if you’re continuing on to Mombasa, Amboseli or the Tanzanian border. The roads in the park are drivable with 2WDs, but a 4WD is always advisable especially some areas where it can be muddy more so during the rainy seasons. Except if you already have your own vehicle, the cheapest way to enjoy the Nairobi National Park tour is by getting on the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) shuttle bus that leaves the main gate at 2pm on Sunday for a 2½-hour tour. You need to book in person at the main gate by 1.30pm, but do call ahead if you want to do the Nairobi National Park Safari as times can change. Kindly comment and let us know if you have visited the Nairobi National Park and what your experiences were or if you are planning to visit soon. If you haven’t already subscribed to Kenya Safari YouTube channel, please do so. We add Safari Videos at least every week featuring awesome wildlife in Kenya. 😃 SUBSCRIBE ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCekz7503toR4eJAPxEZEpnw?sub_confirmation=1 Video: Nairobi National Park game drive in the heart of Nairobi Audio: Music by AudioJungle: Panorama by AudioQuattro Natural #NairobiNationalParkTour natural sound Thank you once again for watching the Nairobi National Park game drive video, we now hope you will get chance to visit the world's only game reserve within a major city soon. #KenyaSafari

19th Century Time Machine In Forest Park Il.
Like, Comment, Subscribe & Explore. You can check out similar videos on our "Churches, Cemeteries, Haunted & Other Spiritual Places Around Chicago" playlist. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkOfxruvmJEdSYZB8fv3oc4sYrScbgyLG We have other YouTube stations and assorted stuff check out. http://mindsimedia.info/ Many people find cemeteries to be creepy unsettling places that are to be avoided in general. YouTube routinely tags my cemetery videos to be “not suitable for most advertisers”. Well I find them to be places of great beauty a combination time machine and art gallery. A time machine because they don't fit in the 21st century mindset. I mean when was the last time you visited one or went to a funeral? Cemeteries have vast expanses of land that serve no function other than reflection there's no advertising and nothing to buy. They are also a true public art gallery because instead of being a collection of art where the artist is the center of attention the works serves to memorialize a third party and the artist is for the most part unknown. So let's lean back and enjoy the view. There are around 150,000 burial grounds in the US covering some 2,000,000 acres. Today were visiting Jewish Waldheim Cemetery, founded in 1870, it was the first cemetery to open in Forest Park Il. A village located ten miles west of downtown Chicago. This was quickly followed by the establishment of Concordia (1872), German Waldheim (1873), and Forest Home (1876). This land rush for the dead was spurred when Chicago closed City Cemetery (where Lincoln Park is now located) and banned new burials. Accessibility was another factor, in 1856, the Chicago & Galena Union Railroad opened a shop and roundhouse in the village which also made the area attractive to cemetery operators. At that time the village was called Harlem it became Forest Park in 1907 taking the name of a recently opened amusement park. Waldhiem is made up of what was over 200 separate cemeteries, each representing various Chicago families, synagogues, temples and other Jewish organizations. There are nearly 200,000 people buried here, while Forest Park itself is home to less than 20,000 living souls. No big names make their final resting spot here; Clara Pelliter (the “Where'e the Beef” lady), Albert Weinshank who was one of the St. Valentines Day massacre victims and movie producer Michael Todd who was one of Elizabeth Taylor's husbands. During the 1970's his grave was robbed and remains stolen, though later recovered. The area we exploring today is the oldest section of the cemetery, located west of Des Plaines Ave. along the Des Plaines River. In previous videos we have looked at some of the masoleums that dot the landscape. You'll find them on our “Churches, Cemeteries, Haunted & Other Spiritual Places Around Chicago” playlist that's linked in this video description. Tree stump stones (try saying THAT three times fast) were an outgrowth of the naturalist movement of the late 19th century. At the same time that cemeteries were moving away from being church sanctioned burial grounds and more park like final resting places it only seems natural that the objects that commemorate those in repose reflect the surrounding environment. The prime mover behind the stumps was Joseph Cullen Root who was the founder of Modern Woodmen of America which was both fraternal and insurance benefit organization. His offered its members the opportunity to purchase grave markers for deceased loved ones. The stumps varied in size from tiny children’s stones, just a few inches high, to soaring 10 to 12 feet high tree trunks. Most have intricately carved detailing that told the story of the person(s). These memorials became wildly popular in the end of the 19th and early 20th century far beyond the Woodsman. At one point you could even order them through Sears or Montgomery Wards.

Tipsaw Lake Trail ----------------------------------------- Shelly S.'s Review on The Dyrt: https://thedyrt.com/camping/indiana/indiana-tipsaw-lake-catbrier/review/21385 ▶︎ Party Place Catbrier Loop at Tipsaw Lake Recreation area Hoosier National Forest is an excellent area to reserve if you are planning a family get together, reunion or group camping trip. I say this because most of the RV/tent sites are clustered in the grass island created by the loop roadway. There are a few sites that sit on the right side of the loop. There isn’t a lot of tree cover. There is a toilet facility , picnic pavilion and field area that would work well for group cooking and get togethers on the left side of the loop.  The back in sites have electric and water hook ups and are bricked so even if it rains you will have traction and the water should drain well. There is a trail to the beach within the loop.  If your going to the beach it’s best to leave Fido at the campground, no dogs allowed!  It is a nice beach area with a picnic area , parking lot, bathhouse facility and small pavilions and paved trails.  The boat ramp is close by, accessible by road or a trail. The 5.9 mile Tipsaw Lake Trail traverses through the are and though it doesn’t seem to be well used it’s meandering path gives you a good look at the picturesque area around the lake.

DUGGAR DRAMA!!! Joseph Duggar SHARES Kendra's BABY BUMP After Double Date With Josiah Duggar
DUGGAR DRAMA!!! Joseph Duggar SHARES Kendra's BABY BUMP After Double Date With Josiah Duggar. Joseph Duggar and his pregnant wife, Kendra Caldwell, had the honor of keeping an eye on Josiah yesterday, and the unmarried Duggar shared a few photos of their outing on social media. Earlier this month, Us Weekly reported that Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson were engaged. Duggar engagements are usually short, but it looks like the couple is making the most of the brief time they have to relax and enjoy themselves before they get too preoccupied with planning their wedding. On Monday, Josiah shared an Instagram slideshow of photos that were taken during their trip to Byrd’s Adventure Center in Ozark, Arkansas. He and Lauren were joined by Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell who showed off her growing baby bump in a dark blue dress with white polka dots. Duggars and their spouses usually join social media at some point during their relationships, but Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell have not. This means that Kendra isn’t doing pregnancy updates on Instagram like her famous sisters-in-law do, making Josiah’s snapshot one of the few that fans have seen of her baby bump. For their double date with Joseph and Kendra, Josiah and Lauren were joined by two other chaperones, family pilot John-David Duggar and family friend Nathan Bates, who stars on the UP TV reality series Bringing Up Bates. Josiah revealed that John-David flew the group to their destination, and Nathan sat in the co-pilot’s seat. Byrd’s Adventure Center has two grass runways for small planes to land on, making it easily accessible by air. The outdoor recreation center is located in the Ozark National Forest, and it offers a variety of fun activities like hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, rafting, and biking.

Pastry Passions
Pastry Passions, the brainchild of Safiya Burton-Chisholm, opened its third outlet on Hope Road late last year, with plans for a fourth by year-end. Burton-Chisholm's other two outlets are at Sovereign Centre and Half-Way-Tree Transport Centre. Burton-Chisholm also shared with Thursday Food that she is “exploring the possibility of licensing a franchise in Ocho Rios”. Back, however, to Pastry Passions Hope Road, where customer convenience, accessibility,visibility, expansion of the brand — from a business standpoint — to spread overhead costs and increase revenues, thereby boosting profitability, led to the opening of the third. “We are also grateful to be able to lease parking space at the back of the property, and are currently in the process of developing the additional parking, hence even greater convenience,” added Burton-Chisholm. “Additionally, in Jamaica, I've found very few places where people from all walks of life can intermingle in a safe and beautiful environment. I, therefore, wanted to create a space where everyone feels welcome, truly special. We love our children at Pastry Passions, so we have a dedicated play area, complete with complimentary crayons and colouring sheets. Additionally, parents of infants and toddlers will appreciate the diaper changing table and station. Indeed they do!
